Where do you start! Edinburgh deserved something from that game. Leinster set plays killing any momentum in their game right now. I would like to see them kick more points and try to build a score. Sexton was fine on his first outing of the season but Ringrose and Henshaw are sorely missed not a lot coming from the midfield. Basics need to improve or the better opposition in upcoming games will punish them for it. Still lots of quality around this squad need to unlock it.
They have class players, but what kind of team is Cullen's Leinster? Variety is good, but what's their tactical identity?— John O'Sullivan (@NotoriousJOS) September 29, 2017
How Sexton got away with that neck tackle???
What clown voted Sexton MoM?— Scottish Rugby Blog (@ScotRugbyBlog) September 29, 2017
Edinburgh came to play and deserved to go away with something. Leinster needed something outside of 10 but there wasn't much happening. Really missing Ringshaw and their creativity. I'd like to see us taking our 3 points now and again, at least until our lineout is sorted.
Scrappy at best and it was no classic but winners find a way to win, job done 21-13 #LEIvEDI @leinsterrugby— Jackie Mc (@Jackiem23) September 29, 2017
I've watched Leinster and I've come out afterwards, Happy, Sad, Excited, Frustrated even ecstatic. I can honestly say tonight was the first time I've ever been angry. It was without doubt one of the worst games I have ever watched. We butchered so many chances we should be sponsered by Brady's Ham. Seriously, how many lineouts did we lose ? how many times did we loose control inches from the line ? How many missed tackles ? How many awful passes? I could go on and on. Totally pissed off, and that's after a win ! Edinburgh were the better sude tonight, and Leinster need to seriously improve if they want to even thinking about silverware this season.
Not one for the season highlights roll from Leinster, but we got the job done. Munster won't be too scared!— Fromtheruck (@Fromtheruck) September 29, 2017
Disgusted with our centres, ultimate rugby has Reid at 25% tackle success, that's criminal. And worse is that he only attempted 4. The line-out needs a lot of work. Work that Leo is well capable of with his experience so why hasn't it been done yet? Scrum should have been dominant with 2 lions in the front row but were completely nullified... outside of the fact that Leinster scored tries it's tough to find positives
Really disappointed with that #LEIvEDI— #RugbyLeinster (@RugbyLeinster_) September 29, 2017
Bigger picture. Long trip away. A loss. First outing for a lot of lads. Delighted with the win. Could have been better. Could have been worse. On we go...
One of the poorest performances by @leinsterrugby in the RDS in a long time but for me @Jordimurphy was clearly motm.— ger (@stranglemint) September 29, 2017
Not gonna lie, spent a good 10 mins laughing at the fact that the Edinburgh shorts said 'A fine rump'!
Thought it was a scrappy boring enough game really, no standout moments. Disappointed with our line out, needs serious work and really felt like we had no midfield at times, wings and fullback were overstretched.
Leinster won that through the flukiest try to have ever seen. And some jerk spilled beer on my bag. Insult meet injury. #LEIvEDI— Niall Kitson (@niallkitson) September 29, 2017
Lineout shite, scrum creaking, no clue outside 10 and absolutely frozen, what's not to like !!
Not sure about that ending to #LEIvEDI. Unless TV clock is wrong, that game was not over.

How log has it been since we had a decent lineout?
Luke McGrath man of the match!! McFadden and Kearney offer nothing going forward #LeivEdi— Doireann (@doireannmcgrath) September 29, 2017
Painful to watch is the good description of this match. Non existing centres, new boy Fardy looking poor. Looks like there was no game plan whatsoever. Sexton keeps good standard and Carbery was impressive today.
Well we won that but Jaysus that was shite. Line out was ridiculous...again! Told myself BPW minimum Didn’t deserve it Poor @HarpinOnRugby 😔— Richard Mifsud (@Richmif) September 29, 2017
Edinburgh probably did deserve something from the game but my dislike for Richard Cockerill makes me think feck them.
Feel your pain @scottbaldwin2 Tried to high 5 @LeinsterLeo at #LEIvEDI & almost got my head swallowed whole. It's true I'm not lion! #pro14— Cliona Doyle (@clionadoyle) September 29, 2017
How can our lineout be so bad with supposedly the 3rd best lock in stats in world rugby and Fardy ??? Is it the hooker ?? Didn't see the game due to hols but we should be putting 40+ past Edinburgh with all the big players back
Wasn't happy with the Leinster performance tonight, and really felt Edinburgh deserved an bonus point. #LEIvEDI— annettannetta (@Brownamite) September 29, 2017
Larmour was good. Fardy supposed to be an enforcer and he's griping to the ref? Thank god for Luke's try saving tackle. Can we maybe hire a line out coach?

Major kudos to Edinburgh deserved something from that, possibly everything. Bucketloads for us to work on, yet still a win. #COYBIB #LEIvEDI— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) September 29, 2017
