Wow! Just wow. I would have been reasonably happy with a losing BP today but this was sensational. You'll have to go a long way to get a better result in Europe this weekend. Sextons try was a thing of beauty. More than a happy Leinster fan today.

Paul Smith

Wonderful performance. Rhys Ruddock exceptional, along with Sexton

Conor Murphy

That is a damn fine result. Again, a performance not without its issues but very impressive forward play throughout & trademark Leinster ruthlessness when even the tiniest chink of light opened up. Whilst Rhys utterly earned his MOM award, a massive shout out to Scott Fardy who looks a real quality acquisition. Not easy to put in a performance of that quality when sleep-deprived ๐Ÿ‘ถ

Derek McGee

Terrific performance. Bonus point was cherry on top.
And with O'Brien, Ringrose and Lowe to come...exciting stuff!

Micheal Mac An TSagart

Great win, but still not convinced by our defence.

Ian Dornan

A much improved lineout and a solid maul, it's the little gains that all add up. A perfect 10 from our opening two matches, who could ask for more.

Andrew Byrne

Outstanding performances all around.

Sile Corish

Our defence and the return of our lineout yips had my heart in my mouth, but aside from that we looked very good, maul is a weapon, scrum is a rock and while our backs weren't as flashy as Glasgow, they did the job. Bring on Exeter.

Dรณnal Foley

Still some work to do on D and line out (though that's improved considerably). Right negativity over. Other than that this was an incredibly professional performance and with JS and then RB a lesson in game management against a very talented Warriors side. A word on our coaching team who clearly got their tactics right. A BPW at Scotstoun...feckin' awesome ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ”ต☘️

Richard Mifsud

You can really see this team coming together and playing the way Leo wants the game played, this was a outstanding win with the bonus point

Odran John OBrien

Delighted with the result and while there will always be things to work on there's a lot of positives to be taken from that result. Lads worked very hard for that and deserved all 5 points!

Conor Cronin

We can still play so much better so on that basis alone it's very promising. The backline still has Lowe and Ringrose to fit in!

Cormac Mannion

A great result and some superb game management at times. Ruddock was really solid as well as Healey and Fardy. Only worry was the (at times) ease that Warriors ran through us and the missed tackle count each week needs addressing. An awesome start to Europe though. V pleased ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

Joe Sheppard

The lessons of last season have been learnt, it seems. First an abrasive pack to grind the opposition down, then the flash stuff - in that order. Lots of work, particularly in defence, but still it was an impressive outing from the BIB. Delyra for Ciano the two tries: respect!!!!

Riocard ร“ Tiarnaigh

That'll do nicely.
