Andrew Bailey Flaggate last week. Appropriate response this week. 6 tries. Bonus point. And a flag inserted into Bruce Craig’s arse.
Paul Smith James Lowe is a genius. Sexton is a God and the single flag protest on the pitch was a work of genius too 😁. Also O'Loughlin had a superb game at 12.
With the World Player of the Year, Larmour, Lowe, and Ryan all on the pitch Rory @thelock112 O’Loughlin trumped them with a MOTM performance. #LEIvBAT pic.twitter.com/jplpKPydd9— Fergus Ryan (@GusRyan100) December 15, 2018
John Peeters I have to question Bath and the HIA for Underhill. He was pretty much knocked out, yet came back on. Sorry, makes a total farce of the HIA. So much for player welfare.
On a positive note, Leinster showed why they are champions. At times irresistible
Declan Finlay Referee should have should have stopped play straight away. He was holding his head almost straight away
Full time! Solid win!

Sean Michaels Good all round performance, felt like Leinster still had an extra gear if required. If any extra motivation was required the presence of Joe made sure of it. Easy for me to say when I watched it at home in England, surrounded by home comforts, but it was disappointing to see masses of empty seats with 20 mins left of the game
Neil Keegan Rugby porn from Leinster Rugby! So good I've spilt two pints already!
Can’t believe a bit of rain emptied the Stadium....soft fans ....,try the Sportsground!#LEIvBAT— Cathal O'Connor (@cathalpeoc66) December 15, 2018
Cian Ó Muilleoir Bath hit what looks like their top gear for the season last week, whereas Leinster simply shifted up one today. Much like the flotsam on the pitch in the second half, there wasn't much Bath could do to stop themselves being blown away.
Jamie Donohoe Leinster on 🔥😂
On a serious note we will seriously need to sort out our breakdown work for the Toulouse game. They’re a dangerous side but I still fancy us.
Leinster just a different gravy. Bath tried hard but were no match. The clash at the RDS with Toulouse is going to be a cracker #LEIvBAT— Matt Cassidy (@Cass_maitias) December 15, 2018
Andrew Byrne Forty plus points in those conditions shows that Leinster can play anyone anyway. In weather like that you'd have expected a low scoring game but there was no reduction in their appetite to play an expansive game when presented with the opportunity. Roll on the interprovincials.
Ag Kean Great match Great team
Enjoy your night out in Dublin lads, but when you get home it might be time to knuckle down otherwise we are very much in a relegation battle. #bathrugby #LEIvBAT #gutless— MartinMucklowe (@OneShow100) December 15, 2018
Gerald Williamson Good bonus pt win. Thought the game went a bit downhill in the second half. The defensive lines were very good. Bath lacked any invention to their play.
Alastair McDermott Good performance, but defence needs some work.

Andrew Potts Leinster can improve but the in the conditions to score that many tries and basically reduce the Bath attack to nothing worrying is a really good result. Jamie Roberts expression on A Byrne scoring his try said a lot about how outclassed Bath were. Bath pretty much brought their A game, lots of good stuff but were just picked apart. during the 80.
DeeDee O'Malley Great result for Leinster
Rory O’Loughlin, accepting the MoM award and talking about taking your chance because there are young guys pushing through as well. He’s 24. #LEIvBAT— Brendan Hurley (@brendanhurley) December 15, 2018
Steve Sandover Awesome performance bring on the French #leivbat
Frankie Taylor Supreme team

Michael Hatton Bring on Toulouse, I think they will get a very hot reception and we will c how they like it. COYBIB
Kathryn Keegan BP win what more can you ask for
Better than last week, comfortably earned the match points we badly needed in the pool, and what's more, we can play even better. Liking ROL at 12. On to the seasonal interpros for Leinster; on to somewhere with warm surroundings and cold pints for me. 🍻 #LEIvBAT #COYBIB— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) December 15, 2018
