Online comments after Leinster v Cheetahs

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

Ken Wright Job done and home semi final sorted on an awful night can rest players for Europe


Conor Cronin Top of the pile with 4 games to spare is great. The performance and conditions weren't. Lots of talk that we'll rest players now, not sure that's as good an idea as people think. I think they'll need game time together to get themselves ready for the big knock out games, but that's a whole other chat!


Dónal Foley Sloppy, but the conditions played their part in that. Handled what was thrown at us, and ground out the result. Home semi final secured makes the performance seem like a much less important thing than the result

Paul Smith Awful conditions, definitely should have been a red card but job done professionally and the try by O'Loughlin was a stunner. Job Done, home semi secured, not bad for a Friday night 💙


Andrew Potts Young team horrible conditions, a bit sloppy but a good learning curve in dog fight rugby.

Paul Smith Awful conditions, definitely should have been a red card but job done professionally and the try by O'Loughlin was a stunner. Job Done, home semi secured, not bad for a Friday night 💙


Colin Mehigan It can't be easy getting motivated when Leinster have such a huge lead at the top of the conference. To get a home semi final on 1st March is extraordinary but shows the competitive failings of the league

Lornagh Coyle Atkinson When the match officials are announced and get a bigger cheer than the teams. Says it all really.


Reenen Stenekamp We were outplayed. Yes our decision making at times was poor. But take nothing away from Leinster who stuck to it.

Richard Mifsud Not the best performance. Much could’ve been made of space outside but a win’s a win I suppose. Max Deegan a great MOTM. Good experience for the lads moving forward. Impressed by Ross Molony, Max Deegan and Dave Kearney tonight.


Dave Murray Not the best game we'll ever see us play but top spot and home semi with 4 games to spare is very pleasing. Conor O'Brien has been really impressive and has taken his chance this season.

Joe Sheppard Difficult conditions. We just keep on keeping on! Home semi sorted. Job done. Fair play to Cheetahs with some good play. Next 😎😁😎


Cian Ó Muilleoir Yes, it was tough, and I know a win's a win and all that, but that was painful to watch. Cheetahs had a limited gameplan, but they executed, and we struggled for answers. And I've seen better execution under similar weather conditions. Job done, but not exactly a glowing report card for the majority.



Many thanks to all who offered opinions.
