Online comments after Leinster v Edinburgh

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

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

Andrew Bailey


That means that the league is competitive to my mind. Would rather that than just the same four teams brutalizing everyone.

Heath Garren

Playing with a smile on their faces. Someone offer James Lowe a long contract please.

Jamie Bond

Leinster on fire

Tony Hatton

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.

Dónal Foley

Some nice inventive play from Leinster. They will get better as the season goes on.

Gerald Williamson

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.

Noel Hewson

Played well scored good tries good atmosphere

Kathryn Keegan

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.

Derek Tormey

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
