Sloppy at times but an away win in Swansea is a great result. Excellent drop goal from Byrne to win the game

Bert McLoughlin

Undisciplined and sloppy but hey away win in Swansea. Great stuff lads. Cronin and Leavy immense. #COYBIB

A win is good. With a team who probably haven't lined out together as a collective unit all season is better. Away, and to ospreys... that will definitely do!

Conor Cronin

Result never in doubt 😊 you could see what Ospreys were doing to us but we put together some nice new moves man of the match Ryhs Webb and in my opinion Lions scrum half

Odran John OBrien

I'd have taken the losing bonus point but coming away with the win is a great result. Hopefully we can carry that momentum against a poor Connacht team and move even closer to that home semi

Shane O' Brien

It's a win and given the other results at this stage most probably guarantees a home semi.

Tom Keating

I may or may not have screamed "ah you fukkin bollox" at the TV when Lacey stuck his arm out at the end...

Cormac Mannion

A lot of mistakes plus let them off the hook a few times when we busted them. But a win in that manner is a great result because we didn't really deserve it.

Andrew Potts

I wasn't expecting a result today to be honest; Ospreys have been phenomenal and have only lost once at home this season, which was to Munster. Leinster rested a number of key players this week so this particular team probably didn't have an awful lot of game time together. I think you could see this lack of cohesion at times, there was definitely a bit of confusion around plays which led to silly mistakes but overall they came up with a response when called upon and a win is a win. Six points ahead at the top of the PRO12 table is a nice position to be in (pending the result in Thomond of course).

I also have to say there were some shocking calls from Lacey the worst of which was the scrum penalty towards the end of the first half. Leinster scrum moving forward and he shouts use it? Couldn't understand that decision. He also seemed to overlook a number of knock ons/forward passes by Ospreys and gave them two scrums for knock ons that weren't knock ons as far as I could see. What exactly were the lines men doing I don't know.

Killian O'Criodain

A ground out win from an overall poor performance. Just some days it doesn't gel BUT given the team out out it's a fierce win again a very strong Ospreys side who will think they should have won that. Great to see Sean C back and didn't he make that try look simple lol! It's those games that change your season and the boys will have been sat in the changing room looking at each other and thinking "Jaysus we got away with it 😉😉😉"

Joe Sheppard

Was there. Thought Leinster were unusually undisciplined. Good win but was luck at the end, hope biggar is ok, looked out on his feet at the end

Conor Byrne

Often our bogey team, have to be happy with that win. Job done. Super drop goal and how about Cronin's footwork and gas?!

Jackie Mc Causland

Not exactly great but win is a win.

Keith Geraghty

Fully confident we will be in both finals now.

Kevin Caffrey

A win away against Ospreys - take that. Bad miss by Biggar at the end that could be the reason why we get a home semi-final

Richard Collumb

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
