One hell of a game despite the dick heads saying otherwise , massive battle , well done to Leinster but they earned it ,good news for Ireland , all I want now is the World Cup 👍

Eamon Phelan

James Lowe is class 🔥

Gillian Whelan

Not sure how you can win a game with so little ball. Leinster were not very good at keeping it. Great defending through the whole game. Munster fans still blaming the Ref rather then how to win.

Andrew Potts

Lowe on another world, what a finisher. Ross Byrne a very able deputy and good warm up for both teams with Europe coming up.

Dave Murray

Delighted for Ross Byrne and superstar James Lowe!

Deirdre Kennedy

Got lucky at times with the reffing of the breakdown but we’ll take it and move on. Liam Toland is an absolute disgrace as a commentator, the most one eyed shite I’ve ever heard

Derek Tormey

Smashing game of rugby. Leinster have raised the bar with their defence so far this season. As the year progresses they are going to get even better as their attack lets loose. A great sporting occasion today, great to see so many fans at a match which the talking heads said would be two B teams. In fact it was a full throated interpro which was played like it was a knockout fixture.

Andrew Byrne

When you can bring on a lad like Josh VDF to tackle everything that moves, you won't be losing too many games.

Micheal Mac An TSagart

Great game, absolutely astounded that with 10mins to go Munster had 78% possession at that point and were still behind!!! Great defensive effort by the boys today! Lowe is blazing out there also..... #COYBIB 💙💙💙💙

Henry Sellars

Ross Byrne 1 - 0 Joey Carbery. Also James Lowe is a scoring machine and is rapidly becoming our new Isa. Best team won and won well. It might only be 4 points in the table but it's so much more to the fans of the boys in blue. 💙💙💙

Paul Smith

I don’t think it was a deliberate knock on. But he did knock on and Earls in front so a penalty.

I think ref did a better job than I expected tbh.

Martin Savage

The noise during kicker’s conversions & penalties was disgraceful. Absolute embarrassment compared to Thomond.

Conor Murphy

P45 for Whitehouse and his team. Well done Leinster but as someone said on Twitter, the minis ref did a better job

Michelle Tobin

No doubt the thread will be dominated by Munster fans(were there actually any there) bleating about the ref. But a Leinster team which will make 10 changes for Europe comfortably saw off a Munster team who may or may not make 3 ( Cloete Holland & Scannell)

Andrew Bailey

If you are blaming the ref your team was not good enough. Looking at the fan comments on the 42 Munsters fans were not asking how they could lose with 75% possession in the second half. Clue it was not the ref.

Andrew Potts

Delighted with the result. There is an issue in Pro14 with standard of refs - it takes away from the competition. Calibre of ref needs to match that of the players- tonight he didn’t.

Richard Collumb

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
