Glasgow were playing? I thought they didn't turn up?

'When you come at the kings, best not miss'
On the edge of a sporting dynasty here lads! Has there been a time where so many players are on form at the same time?
Leinster stick 50 on Glasgow. That's the way to make a statement. Glasgow aren't up to much here - lot of injuries - but Leinster's dominance here has been complete.— Three Red Kings (@threeredkings) January 14, 2018
A good solid 1st 40 minutes. The game was won fortunately with ease by then. Some superb stand out work between the Forwards and Backs. Great synergy. My only fear is we're at times a bit loose in D especially in the 2nd half. Allowing Warriors to get 19pts was sloppy. I think putting a V strong performance away at MHR next week will set us up for the knock out stages. I agree with Neil Keegan. I think you can see what has been built over the last 3 years and when it comes I believe we'll add another 2 if not 3 *** to our jerseys. 😎😎😎
That’s two for Fardy. Leinster just look like they’re having fun. The start of a new golden era for the boys in blue? #LEIvGLA— Laura-Jane Jones (@MissLJJ) January 14, 2018
Not the hardest opposition today but you can only beat who is front of you and we didn't just beat them, we hammered them. Professional performance and some great tries to enjoy. Any day you score 50 plus points is a good day and today was a very good day.
Great result, 1st half was clinical. 2nd half much more loose and scrappy. Lots to work on for next week, which is a good thing! #LEIvGLA— David McGovern (@daveo_irl) January 14, 2018
Bonus point needed next week, great position to be in after 5 games, Leinster definitely getting back to 2011/12 form again, has taken a while longer than hoped.
All over and a fantastic win for us. Well done 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼#LEIvGLA— #RugbyLeinster (@RugbyLeinster_) January 14, 2018
1. Build a statue of ISA on Anglesea Road.
2. Ross Byrne has developed at a frightening pace.
3. Scott Fardy is the new Nathan Hines
4. James Lowe’s smile makes me happy.
5. Jordan Larmour possibly guilty of trying too hard today but still very good.
6. Luke McGrath was excellent.
7. Rob Kearney proved Donnacha O’Callaghan’s point for him.
8. Rob Henshaw is an excellent 13
9. Glasgow are better than what they were allowed to show today.
10. Lancaster must stay.

The first 20 showed the difference in the teams. They had been dominating possession and territory, plus a man advantage for 10 minutes, yet we were the ones who had the 7 point lead when Jordi came back. From then until halftime we got the BP and essentially the win.
Wasn't our best game, but then we didn't need it to be.
Full time Leinster 55- Glasgow 19. A real drubbing for Glasgow and one they must learn from and quickly.— The Pen (@thepenGW) January 14, 2018
Horrific refereeing. Excellent Leinster team. Scott Fardy my man of the match not just for scoring the tries. Communication across the park is absolutely great

Played 5, Won 5, 5 points ahead everybody after 5 rounds @ChampionsCup.Unquestionably the form team of European rugby right now. A combination of rich talent, astute coaching & hard work.Crucially a product of the league they play in @PRO14Official.— Brian Donnelly (@bptd1234) January 14, 2018
Best form I've seen out of Leinster in a few years, delighted with it

How good was that ! @RugbyLeinster_ 9.9/10— Leinster's Twits (@LeinstersTwits) January 14, 2018
What a performance, hotel in Bilbao is booked!!
FT: Leinster 55 - 19 GlasgowI wouldn't read too much in to this result. We know Leinster are in good form but Glasgow are already out of Europe, and defended like they had little to play for.#LEIvGLA— rugby (@theblitzdefence) January 14, 2018
Annihilation. Leinster showed true class today. World beaters. Great match, great skills, great rest of season ahead.

Lots of good attacking play. Still work to do. Plenty of scope to rotate next week.
Well I never! At last a referee refusing to turn a blind eye to the crooked feed. Take a bow Marius Mitrea for penalising both scrum halves in Leinster’s romp over depleted Glasgow.— Peter Jackson (@JackoRugby) January 14, 2018
Are you not Leinstertained? Our attacking play was a joy to watch, a million miles away from where we couldn’t buy a try a couple of year ago. That said, not happy at conceding 3 tries.
