Terrible defence in the first half then too many mistakes in the 2nd. We created enough chances in the 2nd half to win. Is Ross Byrne good enough or just lacking confidence. Make things worse having to listen to the commentator on BBC Alba. No bonus point either.
Disappointed. JGP went off too early, had just got hot.
Should have got 2 points out of that, maybe 5— Covfefe O'Donoghue (@ColmODonoghue) November 3, 2017
Shocking game but a great learning curve for the young lads
Lost that with first half defence. Echoes of Cheetahs game there from us. Larmour a highlight anytime he got ball. Jpg-Byrne axis continues to frustrate.— Tom Coleman (@LeinsterRoyalty) November 3, 2017
Again the fact thàt we have no leader in our squad is killing us we come away without a point from a game we should have won if we had taken the points that were on offer we have never replaced the leadership that Leo and Shane Jennings brough but also tackling and defence were awful

OMG that was hard going, poor execution of basic skills. To many passes to the knee, ear, behind too high and rubbish ball retention too. It has been a bit of a theme this season but this is the worst example.
Shame to walk away from that game empty handed but glad to see a supposed 2nd string team give a great game. #GLAvLEI
And now 💙➡💚— Cian Ormond (@cianormo88) November 3, 2017
You can't play rugby when your out half stands where you full back is ment to be. Ross Byrne plays to deep and we need to break a tackle just to make the gain line.
Oh and if anyone wants to know why Cronin is not in the Irish squad rewatch this game
Amazing pace and a great pass to finish it from @NMatawalu. 👏 #GLAvLEI #GUINNESSPRO14 https://t.co/XcDiF1ut9u— Papa Kevin (@kevingriffiths) November 4, 2017
Was always a tough ask to go there with the team available and take home a win, but with a bit more composure we could have picked up 2 points at least with another try. Learning curve for some players bit given our last five fixtures I think we all would have bitten the hand off if we were offered what we managed to take from a really tough run of games.

Can't tell if Gibson-Park is our best or worst player.....

Leinster could have won that and lost by more all at the same time. odd one!!#GLAvLEI— Second Row (@the2ndRow) November 3, 2017
Our starting half backs were totally exposed. Fardy stood up in fairness, but I feel we left 2 points go amiss. Hopefully a learning curve for the young fellas.

Too much of a gamble blooding new players away to former Pro12 winners. Odran said what I was going to say. No leader on the field. Last week wasn’t pretty despite the score. SOB lead the team. Too much to expect Ross to lead the team on the field. Needs to be a leader on the field to call plays and see the game. Lost points like these before in Scotland that cost us come end of season.

Job done @GlasgowWarriors 5pts and 8/8 in league. Not a complete performance but perhaps that will wait until May!— Andy Render (@AndyR1705) November 3, 2017
Very one eyed TMO. Glasgow continually clear defenders beyond the ruck and ball carrier runs into the space. Got two trys as a direct result. Also a no arm tackle on jordi Murphy before he saw yellow. Contrast that with tmo insistence on the Strauss clear out near the end. The league needs to assign better officials.
Don’t envy you having to watch that again Jeff. Jaysus once was bad enough 😱 @HarpinOnRugby— Richard Mifsud (@Richmif) November 3, 2017
We flattered to deceive. Deserved win for Glasgow.
Much better 2nd half but not good enough. Young Leinster side will learn. Overall a decent 10wks of results to start season #COYBIB #GLAvLEI— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) November 3, 2017
Many thanks to all who offered opinions.
