5 points in the bag, keeping that pressure on Scarlets.

Not the greatest game to watch but any game where you score 7 tries and secure a BP win is a good day. Deegan, Lowe and Leavy all excellent but I personally thought Daly was MOM. Looked really comfortable at FB and made some great breaks. Happy Man today 😁.

7 tries we'll take that😉

Sharon Murphy


Cool, efficient, clinical. Some smart thinking by Deegan for his try from the base of the ruck.

Wayne O Brien


Great win Leinster. Now for Scarlets.

Elizabeth Hackett


Good work by Leinster, get the win, get the BP. Avoid injuries I hope!

Conor Cronin


Deegan. Lion in waiting. Dooley is a player we should keep. Abdaladze impressive Cameo. Byrne is a potential international hooker if he can learn to throw at the line-out. We need a specialist line-out throwing coach at national level.

Conor Dempsey


An odd game overall. The result was never in doubt, nor was the BP but the performance was a little lacking in cohesion. Ok, the typically Irish weather didn't help but there lacked the sort of simple hand-to-hand-to-hand rugby we've gotten used to this season in favour of booting the ball away. It seemed like any semblance of a plan or system seemed to fall apart quite early. That said, good to see some of the younglings continuing to progress nicely. Finishing the game with Byrne, Dooley, Abdaladze, Frawley & Mullin on the park is heartening & for two of those lads to get scores in what had become a done deal at that point speaks highly of their work ethic as players. Very promising indeed.

Job done, 5 points in the bag and young players got game time. Next week same again and another 5 pointer hopefully and Edinburgh do us a huge favour against Scarlets to get us the home semi.
