Best squad I’ve ever seen! The young talent coming through is phenomenal!
Hopefully the injured lads aren’t too bad.
Imagine being Jack Conan. Stuck behind Jamie Heaslip who rarely got injured, and as Heaslip goes down - Max Deegan comes along. Then Caelan Doris is coming soon too.

Fantastic performance from Leinster. Great understanding amongst players and the speed of thought and intensity were immense. A team in unison. The rest of us have a bit of catching up to do.

Hard to find fault with that, just an excellent performance. A word for JGP; thought he was quality tonight and you'd have to think he'll keep Lowe out of the Euro squad (even if that hasn't already been decided by Ferg's form).
@RugbyLeinster_ a different level to @RugbyUlster_ Larmour a special talent. Sexton's try summed up the game perfectly - Ulster huff and puff and get nowhere and when Leinster decide to lift the intensity, they scored at will. Only La Rochelle next week #LEIvULS— Matt Cassidy (@Cass_maitias) January 6, 2018
What a performance. Skill set, the pace and understanding of the players is unreal. It must be hard for Leo to pick his team every week and who to leave out.
ANOTHER marker put down by @leinsterrugby ! Hope everyone stays healthy ! What a performance! Bring on Glasgow! #leivuls— Keego (@nkeegan) January 6, 2018
Pretty good performance and kept the desire to play going through the entire game. Well done.
#LEIvULS some great stuff there across the board from Leinster..Larmour..Fardy..JGP...Porter nice cameo....38 - 7 flattered Ulster.— MJ (@markusjacksonus) January 6, 2018
An excellent and unified team performance tonight! Great build up play, great understanding of where players are, great support on the shoulder. Yes Larmour is a real find but Henshaw & Fardy were REAL standout players. Two (very) minor points are the undeserved negativity that JGP gets from many. I think his vision and play is superb and unfortunately finally I'm losing faith in what Dev T brings. He just isn't cutting it for me anymore. Overall a very solid and inspired Leinster performance 😎😎😎
Leinster won Christmas anyway. Larmour surely has to be in the Six Nations squad on this form.— Rúaidhrí O'Connor (@RuaidhriOC) January 6, 2018
Great to see Ferg playing so well. Jordan getting a lot of deserved plaudits but Ferg is so solid and dependable. Stockdale played himself out of Irish team. Leo and Stuart gel so well. Academy is producing some great talent. Thinking back to the negativity of the MO’C days seems a distant memory
Impressive win tonight. Great interpro series. Huge two weeks coming up and some exciting months ahead for @leinsterrugby ......looking forward to supporting them every step of the way 💙— Aisling O'Connor (@aisling7) January 6, 2018
Fergus mugged for man of the match 😂 plenty of knocks hopefully the lads aren't too banged up. Great win. Ross Byrne is ten times the player he was at the start of the season outstanding work from him

Not sure what impresses more with @leinsterrugby . The slick well drilled ball handling or the very smart defense, especially around the rucks. Young talent is incredible. #LEIvULS— Shane Keating (@spkeat) January 6, 2018
The squad depth is incredible. Has to be the best squad in Europe...
Porter had a smashing 40mins, literally💪💪
Meanwhile, Ulster were awful🤦🏼♂️
Leinster seriously impressive again. Jordan Larmour's star continues to rise. Ulster were dire here tonight. https://t.co/uPqUmdb6kk— Murray Kinsella (@Murray_Kinsella) January 6, 2018
Young guns had a lotta fun! Porter, Larmour smashed it. Joe... make some bold decisions #6nations
#LEIvULS I really enjoyed the match, a wonderful game of running rugby, with Leinster scoring some great tries. We Leinster supporters deserved such a triumph.— James Dean (@Lilydog12) January 6, 2018
The word in the changing room sums it up 'Ruthless' and that is the attitude they've brought this season. I'm not getting carried away but all I will say is this...on their day they can beat any team. The problems arise when they have brain farts and don't turn up. The mitigating factor this season is the competition for places. It keeps the buggers honest and Leinster Rugby (and us) are the beneficiaries.
The real disappointing thing about that performance was that the @UlsterRugby team that was put out was genuinely supposed to challenge @leinsterrugby tonight. Didn’t come close. #LEIvULS— Ruari Fallis (@RuariF) January 6, 2018
The last try summed up the new attitude. Utterly ruthless and what a hand-off by Deegan!
Whatever about mediocre Ulster are, that Leinster side is absolutely incredible #LEIvULS— Stuart Anderson (@Anderssd85) January 6, 2018

FT High flying @leinsterrugby have beaten Ulster 38-7 at the RDS! Some great individual performances! #GUINNESSPRO14 #LEIvULS pic.twitter.com/klFbSnoHji— Inpho Photography (@Inphosports) January 6, 2018
Only 3 negatives and those are the injuries to Tracy, Furlong and Ringrose. Ferg had a fantastic game, one slip and one knock on aside, Fardy and Toner both seemed to get through a ton of work, Henshaw had an absolutely exquisite offload for Lamour's second. And as for Lamour, absolutely amazing both in attack, where he was making breaks for fun and in defence, where he made a few try saving tackles and at least one momentum stopping turnover when Ulster were still in with a shout. He is in desperate need of an Ireland cap.
Also gotta love Andrew Porter deciding that Furlong shouldn't be the only tighthead who can knock lads on their behind.
@leinsterrugby Making the weekend great again! Fantastic performance today from the men in blue #LEIvULS #Bluemagic #JoinTheRoar #GuinnessPro14— Mark Mullins (@Mark_W_Mullins) January 6, 2018
As an Ulster fan that was a total embarrassment but it's been coming for weeks. We're moving backwards at a rate of knots and we were very flattered by the scoreline. Leinster strength in depth is frightening but brilliant for Ireland too

What of Ulster? What is wrong. John Cooney seemed to be the only one with abit of buzz when he came on. Come on Ulster we need you firing on all cylinders. Proove you still have it next Sat.
Great displays from Leinster over the inter pros.
Scott Fardy missing out on MOTM for the umpteenth time. Mr Consistent.— Tom Coleman (@LeinsterRoyalty) January 6, 2018
Ross Byrne impeccable. Very sharp reactions, great kicking, controls the attack so well.
Maybe if Jacob held that interception things would have been different but the way we were defending I doubt it. Hard to find fault with 14 Interpro match pts out of 15 in 11 days. Larmour outstanding. Fingers crossed for Ringrose and others who took a knock. #COYBIB #LEIvULS— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) January 6, 2018
Many thanks to all who offered opinions.
