Online comments after Leinster's Pro14 final triumph

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
our Facebook page for our “Feel free to leave your thoughts…” posts which show up around full time after Leinster & Ireland matches.

Cian Ormond 80 minutes of squeaky bum time.

Bert McLoughlin Not on top form but had the experience to see out the 80 mins with a win

Cian ร“ Muilleoir Not a perfect game from either team, but a great 'away' performance from Leinster. Leinster's superb defensive line, well-managed rucks and consistently winning the collision area did for Glasgow in the end. Tighter in the end than the difference between the sides I'd say, but I wouldn't press my argument over it. The better team on the day won, and it's another trophy in the cabinet. Happy feckin days!

Mike Reidy Well done Leinster, much needed boost for Irish Rugby, after a relatively disappointing season!

Colin Mcconaghie Well done Leinster but what a horrible place for fans for a rugby final. Please never again Pro14, rugby stadiums only

Karl Walsh Leinster’s defense was immense. And they proved, yet again, that they know how to win games. The Sarries result hurts and is one that got away but this result ends the season on a high. Super stuff!

John Broderick What was Sexton thinking not taking 3 points 

Sexton’s form worrying

Conan miles ahead of Stander as an 8

Luke mc Graths work rate unbelievable and will def push Murray depending on how joe wants to play 

Big boost for World Cup 

Glasgow would have destroyed Munster

James Griffin (Munster fan) Congrats Leinster people! Happy for you!

John Peeters Back to back Pro 14 winners. Not to be sniffed at. And we go again next season. Was hugely impressed by Leinster’s back row. 

We go again next season

Ginette Mifsud Weeeeeeee are the Champions my friends!!!!! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

Cormac Mannion Quite a different win to last year in the Aviva but probably more impressive. Thought we should have made more of that period in the second half when we were camped on their line. 

Great to defend the title and round off what has been a mixed bag of a season as a Leinster and Ireland supporter.

Noel Hewson Tough game as expected. Leinster’s experience was a factor. Stellar season good to get a trophy and that’s 3 from 4 in two seasons.

Conor Cronin Leinster know how to grind out a win even in the toughest of circumstances. That was a very difficult Glasgow team, they wanted to give nothing away. But Leinster showed that with a little luck, a lot of preparation and determination anything is possible. Very proud of the lads for putting aside critics, bad results etc and showing what champions are made of

Andrew Potts Good win just about, seriously there is a few generations of Leinster out halfs who will be wondering why at about ten mins to go on their 22 and multiple phases why Leinster did not set up a drop goal. 21/10 would have been a killer

Riocard ร“ Tiarnaigh Luke McGrath was my MOTM. That charge down on Hogg was the deciding act. It took the wind out of their sails and got us on the scoreboard. Great performance which shows mental fortitude after the disappointment of Newcastle.

Sharon Murphy Best team won; not impressed with Glasgow fans. Come on leinster

Olwen Barrett What a result!! Great way to end the season after the disappointment of Newcastle!

Never gave up but just kept going to grind out a win over a tough Glasgow side, showing what true champions are made of! Healy, Ringrose, McGrath, Conan, Ryan all immense but all players made their presence felt.

Lovely to see SOB lift the trophy, great way to say goodbye and thanks! 

Onwards to 2020..... can we do the triple?? ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

Richard Collumb Great win! Nice way to end the season

Alan Eastwood Great game. Fair play to Leinster fuck all teams would lose a heino final and come back to win them 2 games.

Kate O'Leary (reply to Alan) fair point. Thought larmour had a storming game. Great win!

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
