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.
Thoroughly professional performance against a very resilient and resolute Embra. As we consistently did last season we found a way (tactical switch) in-game which is very difficult to play against and which we have the personnel to exploit. All in all we never looked like losing that and after the 3rd there was always going to be a BPW. Fact is if we play with desire there aren’t many teams that can cope with us. Hope the second try features prominently in your write up Jeff. As ever #COYBIB
Business-like BP win for Leinster in the end.Leinster head to Galway next weekend. Connacht will be buoyed by a big win over Scarlets, too.Should be a cracker. #LEIvEDI

Can Lowe solve our lineout problems - he can do everything else. Good performance against one of the better teams in the league. I’d be concerned about quailty of the league though - the supposedly strong teams Glasgow, Scarlets and Munster all losing this weekend
That means that the league is competitive to my mind. Would rather that than just the same four teams brutalizing everyone.
FULL-TIME! Another bonus point win at the RDS moves us to the top of the #GUINNESSPRO14 Conference B table! #LEIvEDI— Matthew Hugh Lingard (@LingardHugh) September 22, 2018
Playing with a smile on their faces. Someone offer James Lowe a long contract please.
Leinster’s side is just ridiculous #LEIvEDI— Richard Vaughan (@RichardVaughan1) September 22, 2018
Leinster on fire
That 10 mins of defence in the 1st half was devastating for Edinburgh. Great work by forwards. Healy and JVDF were fired up #LEIvEDI— Kevin Killick (@queev) September 22, 2018
Lineout wobbled initially, but was fixed before the break, which is encouraging. Edinburgh put it up to us physically, but you need more than brute force to get past this team, and Leinster were the team with all the ideas.
Defensively very sound, held up over 15 minutes of stern pressure. Ref made a few questionable calls.#LEIvEDI #COYBIG— Ciarán Duffy (@TheVoiceDepth) September 22, 2018
Some nice inventive play from Leinster. They will get better as the season goes on.
Another great win for @leinsterrugby, getting better with each week and a nice well worked try with two minutes to go!! Great performances all round but Healy and McFadden stood out tonight #COYBIB #JoinTheRoar #LEIvEDI #GuinnessPRO14 #eirsportPRO14— Paul Daly (@Paullyie) September 22, 2018
So many exciting players in this team backboned by physicality across the board. Great to see JVDF and Leavy back. Lineout need fixing before the European games.
If that's a red card, we may as well pack up and call it a day, because rugby will be dead and buried at this rate. It's a physical game, not a bloody tea party!! #LEIvEDI— R.M.F.Brown (@RMFBrown) September 22, 2018
Played well scored good tries good atmosphere
Directive to referees this season from World Rugby has been that carrier striking the tackler’s neck/head with the elbow is red.— Murray Kinsella (@Murray_Kinsella) September 22, 2018
Good solid win. Edinburgh better than expected considering their changes. 16 out of 20 points a good return to start the season heading into the interpros. Interesting to see if we’ll make the usual wholesale changes for Galway.
Nice comfortable win, not easy against this Edinburgh squad. Many good performances JVDF, Toner, Healy, Henshaw, Larmour, Sexton but special mention for Mick Kearney I thought he put in a solid extended shift. Nice to be back in first place. on to next week. #COYBIB #LEIvEDI— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) September 22, 2018
