Online comments after Lyon v Leinster

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.

Conor Cronin Travel to France and get the win, concede no tries, even a man down, top of the table for the week away from Europe, pretty sure that's job done!

There are of course things that can be worked on an that can get better, but let's keep the glad half full and keep the team building to those bigger better performances. No injuries against Glasgow next week and we'll be in a good place

Jamie Donohoe The whole pack and in particular the back row were superb. And to not concede a single point with Larmour off the pitch was a fantastic achievement particularly away in France

Paul Smith Any win in France is a good win. Not good for the nerves but great defence gave is a deserved win. Pearce had a really good game (don't say that often about refs) but my heart rate would be a lot lower if Johnnys try had been allowed to stand.

David Lawlor No sense in hitting the high gears this early in the season. Ramp it up slowly and come April and May we'll see what this team is really capable of.

Dónal Foley Christ, my heart. Still, top of the table after 2 rounds, sets up the double header against saints perfectly.

Kevin Kelehan Leinster will be in Marseille next May, Lyon better than expected but still Leinster always in control even when down to 14.

Geoff Smith Neil Francis: 'Leinster were so far from perfect that you have to complain - because Lyon were absolutely atrocious'. I find Neil Francis difficult to read. He is a gossip columnist

Mick Thompson Excellent result and performance given the toughness of the opposition

Lorcán Murphy Bloody hell. That’s a relief. The hardest fought wins are the sweetest

Anton Phelan This kind of game will stand to Leinster going forward

Jimmy Murphy Slugfest

Dave Murray VDF excellent since coming back from Japan, Ruddock too.

Michael Miley That’ll do!...

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
