At least we won.
Well, it's better than losing. A win is a win is a win... 22-21 #LEIvCBL— Killian Byrne (@killianbyrne) March 25, 2017
Not Adam Byrne's best day at the office. A wake up call in advance of next week.
Three cracking tries from Cardiff Blues, but it's not quite enough. https://t.co/G8h3JMpc9l— BBC ScrumV (@BBCScrumV) March 25, 2017
Wade/Beale/Le Roux are going to be gunning for A Byrne after that. His defence is shocking at times.

Whew! Big big whew! Massive credit to the Cardiff Blues for taking #Leinster right to the line! But 4 points will do nicely thank you— Fromtheruck (@Fromtheruck) March 25, 2017
If anyone needs to know why Adam Byrne is not in the Ireland squad watch that game. Saying that Isa was superb. Ross moloney is just not strong enough for that level yet. Scrum was very very strong even with our third choice props on the pitch. Mike Ross needs a few fitness sessions all the same.
Too close for comfort! Cardiff very strong. #LEIvCBL— David McCullagh (@mcculld) March 25, 2017
Look in my opinion l think Cardiff did their home work on us but with Leo and our coaching team we will learn from this April 1st Bring it On
Plus Cardiff Blues had a try awarded scored from a forward pass which referee Clancy totally over looked he had a very poor day at the office and not for the first time refereeing a Leinster game

Leinster with more possession took their chances, Cardiff with little ball butchered 2 very good try scoring opportunities. #LEIvCBL— rugby (@theblitzdefence) March 25, 2017
A poor day at the office with a lot of simple errors in attack and defence. Cardiff created very little and scored all their scores off turnover ball. Had we been as accurate as we were the last few months we'd have scored several tries and kept them off the board. Disappointing but it happens. We won playing badly and have gotten 24 from a possible 25 while the front line internationals were away. That's a good place to be.
Leinster hold on for a win they scarcely deserved, Cardiff great to watch. Cracking game— Rúaidhrí O'Connor (@RuaidhriOC) March 25, 2017
Poor. The fact they had to come back out early at half time to run a drill showed their heads were up their arses. Clancy and the touch judge on the grandstand side were a joke though... Carbery far more effective at 10. Need to get selection right next week or we're in trouble. Reid and McGrath offered very little and were duly replaced.

Meh. A win is a win
LC: "We have a lot of tough games to come. Wasps next week and then three away and one at home in the PRO12." #LEIvCBL— Leinster Rugby (@leinsterrugby) March 25, 2017
After all the BP wins we were due a blip, rather it was this week than next!
Was at the RDS earlier.The pre-2nd half passing drill... didn't really work out.— Andy McGeady (@andymcgeady) March 25, 2017
Loss of concentration somewhere a lot of dropped passes and falling off tackles. Two areas they have been great on, less confident about Wasps as they will be well up for winning here rather then going to France
