Tom O'Donaghue Good performance not perfect but missing a few players too.
James Griffin Wasps get badly stung 🐝. Congrats Leinster folks!
Sean Cronin being top try-scorer in the European Cup so far is such a testament to his athleticism! If you said 'hooker as top try-scorer' you'd imagine him being on the end of a big shove over the line, but he's got way more in his locker than that! #WASvLEI #Leinster #nugget— Grace O'Sullivan (@gosulli) January 20, 2019
Chris McDonnell Job well done and a few back from injury. Happy days, stay safe through the 6 nations and we have a real good chance of a 5th star
Steve Wynne-Jones All hail the nugget!
Leinster always in control. The result never in doubt #WASvLEI— Denis Bell (@denismbell) January 20, 2019
Paul Smith Very professional performance by Leinster. Job done and home QF secured. That'll do nicely. Allez Les Bleus !!!
Colin Campbell Solid performance but I'm sure Leo will be disappointed conceding the tries
Only 1 English team in the quarter finals of the #ChampionsCup. Are the English teams all shit now? #WASvLEI— Freedom Littleseal (@TheShiftyShadow) January 20, 2019
Anton Phelan SOB was brill today but Porter in for a bit of a telling off
Kevin Kelehan 4 tries away from home, nothing wrong with that but will have to be a lot sharper in Paris in the last 4.
Did Peter Jackson direct this interview? Nugget and Jemmy look tiny #WASvLEI pic.twitter.com/N5PH1GpIOO— Avril VEGAN SAUSAGE ROLL Needham (@comagirlx) January 20, 2019
Richard Mifsud Very professional performance didn't really need to get out of 3rd gear to win that at a canter. Very good game management keeping the tempo up when required, slowing it down when required. Great orchestration and choreography by the coaching staff and the players. From a coach's perspective they'll be disappointed with the three tries conceded especially the second one but I'm sure they're rubbing their hands in glee for tomorrow's review 😜. Plenty of positives with SOB and Robbie coming back. Ross B solid, Adam Byrne and Dave Kearney played very well, the pack was good as a collective and individually, JGP played very well and deservedly got MOM. Never seemed in doubt and now it's Ulster. We're in a good position at the moment. #COYBIB
Neil Keegan Strong and hefty bizzle from Leinster Rugby ! The blue train keeps rolling
Bring in those Ulster men!
When you come at the kings, best not miss!
See ya in the quarter final 🏈🏈🏈 @leinsterrugby #WASvLEI pic.twitter.com/cWnzz2r7lK— Jarrod Bromley (@jarrodbromley) January 20, 2019
Graham Charles Wasps forgot to play in the first half but it was all over by then. Another good performance by Leinster. Bring on Ulster
Jamie Bond Very straightforward win. Any mistakes can be blamed on not really needing to be 100% there because the game was won quite easily.
Onwards and upwards. Knockout rugby from now on.
Reckon @UlsterRugby will be the happiest with those results. Short trip down the M1 to narrowly lose to the @ChampionsCup champs. @leinsterrugby #ChampionsCup #WASvLEI #WaspsLeinster— Finbar Dowling (@finbardowling) January 20, 2019
Gerald Williamson A comprehensive win on a heavy looking pitch. Would be worried about the few knocks received during the match. Leinster secured the bonus pts for a home ( Aviva ) quarter final against Ulster at the end of March.
Noel Cuddy Clinical in attack, very poor defensive errors let them in for tries. Porter got stepped ball watching. Not enough trust in his inside man from Byrne allowed them in late. Stu will give them a going over tomorrow. JGP, Ryan, DK , Nugget, Ringrose and Fardy all had decent games against a poor Wasps team. Wasps depend too much on their 'star' players. English Premiership is at a low. Ulster will be up for it in QF we just got to see how we get through 6 Nations period. Going to be good seeing the young guys getting game time in the coming weeks. Hope to see some future stars from the academy getting a run. Always pinch yourself and think how lucky we are and remember what it was like in the Matt O'Connor days.
We are still the team to beat in this seasons champions cup. It’s up to the rest to stop Leinster now #WASvLEI @ChampionsCup @leinsterrugby #COYBIB— Denis Bell (@denismbell) January 20, 2019
Pádraig Turley Sound win, conceded some soft scores. Great to see Sean O’BRIEN back of pitch and looking good.
Sharon Murphy Job done home fixture secured
@leinsterrugby @OLSCRugby #WASvLEI #leinster #COYBIB #bluemagic #quarterfinal bagged at home nice win by the boys bring on #ulster 🌟🌟🌟🌟— martin (@martinod1963) January 20, 2019
Dónal Foley Not near perfect, but that was a case of not really needing to be. 5 points away, injury list will decide how happy we are with today really.
Derek Tormey Fairly ordinary really. Well take the win but wasps weren't interested whatsoever and to concede three tries is poor. With all that possession you'd expect Jonny to have steered us to the BP before half time.
Great win, solid performance all round and BP and home Quarter final in the bag - well played @leinsterrugby @OLSCRugby #WASvLEI #ChampionsCup #COYBIB— Paul Daly (@Paullyie) January 20, 2019
Jamie Donohoe Very professional and clinical display. Sean Cronin putting serious pressure on Joe Schmidt ahead of England game. SOB & Henshaw looked very sharp in their 60 mins on the pitch. Dave Kearney very decent again today following on from last week
Colm Cunningham Great performance from Ryan and Cronin again. Adam Byrne is on form. Great to see.
Job done. Shipped more 2nd half points that I'd like but otherwise no complaints. As well as breakdown work our lineouts and strip tackling impressed...nothing too flash but happy out. On to the last eight! #WASvLEI #ChampionsCup #COYBIB— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) January 20, 2019
