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?

Neil Keegan

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. 😎😎😎

Joe Sheppard

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.

Paul Smith

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.

Kevin Kelehan

Some thoughts.

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.

Gary Gleeson

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.

Dónal Foley

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

Baz C. Ryan

Best form I've seen out of Leinster in a few years, delighted with it

Dara Mac An Chrósáin

What a performance, hotel in Bilbao is booked!!

Ciara Mangan

Annihilation. Leinster showed true class today. World beaters. Great match, great skills, great rest of season ahead.

Brendan Coote

Lots of good attacking play. Still work to do. Plenty of scope to rotate next week.

Noel Hewson

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.

Wayne O'Brien

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
