Online comments after Leinster v Scarlets

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

If you’d like to contribute stay tuned to
our Facebook page for our “Feel free to leave your thoughts…” posts which show up around full time after Leinster & Ireland matches.

A hard fought win against a really good side. Lowe is superb and Fardy just gets better and better. Both sides short a lot of players but Leinster controlled the game a bit better and deserved to take the win.

Paul Smith

I’m not sure what Noel Reid brings to the team, his progress seems to have become regression. Happy to be proven otherwise.

I hate criticising referees, I know they do a difficult job but John Lacey had an abysmal game. He has no authority and really poor communication to both captains.

Gary Gleeson

Lowe was good Fardy was better. Leinster lacked control at times and tackling was loose at times. Scrum fell apart at the end which is concerning. Big game away to Scarlets in two weeks.

Noel Hewson

Great game to watch - two strong competitive sides going at it even if depleted by national duty. Our imports won out over theirs thankfully! Tadgh was immense for Scarlets - but Fardy was outstanding again

Johnny Grimes

A word for Frawley. Big game from him. Especially taking the kicking.

Jason Fallon

Shame that biggest games of season (top 2 teams in Pro14) are decimated by 6 Nations call ups. Odd scheduling. And stranger still that Pro14 cannot deliver neutral refs and that a potentially entertaining game is spoiled by the incompetence of John Lacey

Andrew Bailey

Omg Fardy and Lowe are ripping up the Pro14!

Garry Wynne

Gritty win against a damned fine side. Our D wasn’t brilliant but improved after the first 20. Too many missed tackles though. Don’t need to say how impressed I am with James Lowe as he is great but for me, as has been the case throughout most of the season it has to be the team’s engine Scott Fardy our best player by a country mile. Impressed with what I saw of Frawley. I hope Luke and Rory are not too badly injured. Final comment goes to Tadhg Beirne. What a player! I see him wearing green before too long. Anyway back to winning ways #COYBIB

Richard Mifsud

Again, gotta echo all the love for Fardy. He's been superb for us over the last couple of months. A real pack leader.

Thought Deegan had a fine game as well. Turning into one of our most reliable performers and the improvement in his game this season had been notable.

Cormac Mannion

Harpo if McGrath is out what do you think of signing Peter stringer as a stopgap for Europe?

Chris Mc

Ciaran frawley the talent keeps on coming

Paul Mc Mahon
