Online comments after Glasgow v Leinster

A selection of the “keyboard warrior” reactions after the full-time whistle of our featured matches of the weekend.

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.

Colin Campbell

Shocking game but a great learning curve for the young lads

Steve Wynne-Jones

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

Odran John OBrien

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.

Andrew Potts

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

Chris McDonnell

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.

Paul Smith

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

Baz C. Ryan

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.

Jim Kelly

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.

Noel Cuddy

Tackle tackle tackle tackle tackle also tackle

Declan Farrelly

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.

Ro Molloy

We flattered to deceive. Deserved win for Glasgow.

Roy Thompson

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
