Horrific refereeing I thought, but sure we're used to that in the pro 12/14. Aside from that, no atmosphere or anything due to lack of fans.

There was a scrum penalty against Healy where the ref said he saw him clearly drop his bind. The replay clearly showed the S.A. player let go of his bind, while Healy held his.

Then for Carberys disallowed try, he gave a knock on against Healy(which it was). But the reason it was knocked on was because the S.A. player had tipped the pass with an outstretched hand, deliberately knocking on. Ref gave a scrum to Kings...
The before the Kings try, there was a penalty given against Larmour for holding the player back. The replay clearly showed the Kings player put his left arm around Larmour first.

It was all irrelevant to the result, but what is wrong with their eyesight?

15 from 15 is great, but we're taking an awful long time to put away poor opposition. The opposition starts getting tougher from here on.

Dónal Foley

More lads on the pitch than in the stand

Odhrán McIntyre

Shaky first 40. Much improved second. We seriously missed Isa.

Damien Doherty

Outstanding win on our first trip to Sth Africa plus a bonus point you can't ask for any more

Odran John OBrien

A solid second half but we really should have a bit more bite about us. We need to show more ruthlessness to sides like these, they should be dreading playing us. Having said that we have taken 3 wins from 3, two of them away from home, if we can take another scalp next weekend then that's a great start to the season before we get our big guns back.

Andrew Byrne

Can't understand why anyone is complaining. A BP win away from home after a long trip to S.A. is nothing to be sniffed at. We weren't at the top of our game but like last week a 10 minute blitz and job done. 15 points from 15 is a brilliant start and long may it continue. Cronan and McGrath both superb, ref not so much. Happy Leinster fan today !

Lot of young guys getting some good expirience and some of the bigger names will have a battle on their hands to get their Jersey back none more so than Heaslip, as Conan has been immense so far this season and Luke McGrath just gets better every game. This year is going to end with silverware, it's been too long since we put another trophy in our cabinet.

Paul Smith

That was a solid workmanlike performance. Not exciting rugby but solid! Lads I think we need to get our heads around the reality that THIS team will very the norm for large parts of the season with Autumn Internationals, 6 Nations, Injuries, Player Mgmt etc etc...... I'm looking forward to a more stronger test as the weeks go on but a happy Leinster lad so far. 😎😎😎

Joe Sheppard

Joey Carbery has the potential to be a World Class out half. He has no chance of becoming that playing full back as a stop gap measure. The next time he plays out half he will start feeling pressure to perform. Leinster would probable be better converting Marsh to full back. This continues and it will be Ian Madigan all over again.

Andrew Potts

Delighted bout the result. One thing's for sure though: we're never gonna win any silverware with a malfunctioning line out!!!

Riocard Ó Tiarnaigh

We remain disjointed in attack, and yet have 3 bonus point wins from 3.

Our defence is great, quick and aggressive line speed. And our setpiece is very strong, scrum in particular .

Brian O'Farrell

Lads SA were playing the all blacks this morning and got hammered. I wouldn't be running out to watch another hammering after that

Chris McDonnell

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
