Cian Ó Muilleoir In the approach to this game there was an awful lot of doubt as to how Leinster might pick up after their recent poor results. I believe those questions may have been answered.

Neil Keegan Toulouse avoided a trip to Dublin in the group stages only to be rewarded with.....a trip to Dublin

Leinster strangled them amazingly well. Fantastic to watch. Marker set down

I haven’t said this in a while but

When you come at the kings, best not miss!

Conor Cronin Strong solid performance, every one of their scores answered by one (or more) of ours. Leinster gave up so little ground and just strangles any attack they tried.

The drive for 5 continues and I couldn't be more proud of the squad

Ivor Geraghty This Leinster side can beat Saracens. I was worried yesterday!

Derek Tormey Clinical and professional. That was a proper Leinster performance, great to see Jonny back in form. Proper 50/50 battle in store for the final, hopefully the blue hoards travel to make it more of a home game

Alastair McDermott Woohoo!

Martin Loughrey Great performance. Organised and clinical, albeit with a few too many penalties given away. I thought Barnes had a great game on the whistle and lastly I think I have a man crush on Medard's side burns.

Ivor Geraghty This Leinster side can beat Saracens. I was worried yesterday!

Paul Smith Superb display. Best all season. So many hero's, Fardy, Ryan, Toner, Sexton, I could name them all but have to reserve a special mention for Lowe who was simply world class. Roll on the final. The drive for 5 is just 1 step away. Allez Les Bleus !!!

Conor O'Shea Brilliant! Hope Cronin recovers in time though Tracy played very well

Noel Hewson Was as nervous as I had been in a long time prior to this game. A great performance James Lowe took his try well and Sexton hit his stride without hesitation. Roll on Sarries and the final everybody probably wanted.

Richard Collumb Great performance- only concern are injuries

Niall Kerley What really impressed me was the pace that Leinster closed out the game, they played as if it was the first ten minutes driving Toulouse back down the park from their own 5m line.

I felt for SOB in his post match interview, Could be his last match at the Aviva. It would be good to see him leave with another star on the shirt.

Aidan Donnelly When was the last time Toulouse failed to score a try? And when as the last time Saracens beat Leinster? The answer is: Never.

Sean Michaels Wow and more wows.Just on the plane back to UK after being at the Aviva and I’m still in pleasurable shock about how well we played. JS certainly answered his critics with a stellar performance . Sarries certainly won’t like what they saw today. Leinster back to their European best. COYBIB

Craig Walker Cracking performance from the Boys in Blue!! Really lifted it after the 1st 5mins. Toulouse were properly put on their arses there!!

Good luck in the final!!


Sebastian Brennan Solid performance from all the players. Lowe and Fardy stood out today being everywhere and causing constant issues for Toulouse. They’re obvious pick for me for the final. Larmour’s interceptions were also crucial even that he hade quieter day in the office. Saracens beware, we’re coming for the fifth.

Andrew Bailey All that shite about Jonny’s form. Just give him a scrum half who can provide a service and Jonny is Jonny

Michael Hatton Absolutely Superb Display by Leinster Congratulations To All The Players And Staff What a Win, It Took an Almighty Effort to Beat This Toulouse Team, This Team Were No Push Over-and I Had No Doubt They would Win It But Would Have To B At Their Very Best And Lucky Enough that’s the Way It Happened COYBIB

Andrew Potts A pretty impressive coaching performance from Cullen and Lancaster, they really did their homework on Toulouse and it showed.

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
