Online comments after Leinster v Glasgow

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.

Andrew Potts A young team of useful enthusiasm and deadly intent. Fardy hopefully will stay a year or two more his contrabution to these young players is goldust. Yes they are killing teams but you see the process and desire as the entire squad are playing so well.

*Angus Fleming Scott Fardy has to stay another year... awesome influence on these lads 

Richard Mifsud Imperious. Although we had won recent matches we hadn’t played well. Tonight, the intent was obvious. It bodes well for the big matches, which this was. The bookies had it at an 11 point win for us and I thought this was disrespectful to the Warriors. Aren’t I glad I was wrong. At times it was like our boys were on a different planet...and there were a lot of kids on display!!! Thoroughly entertaining display and barring a few mistakes, which I’m sure Leo & Co will pick up on, nigh on perfect 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 #COYBIB Oh and Baird/Ryan combo anyone?

*Hilda Bensworth Ok so in the last few years michaels have produced dan leavy, max deegan, penny, james ryan and ryan bard. As a back five. INSANE.

Conor Cronin How wrong was I today. I thought this was going to be so much closer. Leinster were awesome tonight. And after questioning earlier if Ryan Baird is the real deal he goes out and shows a hat-trick.

That team once again working hard for each other and not wanting to give up anything. They were just outstanding.

*Sandra Seery Ryan Baird. Bring him to the French match. Amazing

Andrew Bailey 7 Home Pro14 matches and 342 points scored. It should be entertaining but it’s not We need competition. This is no preparation for our next home match v Saracens. You can only stuff what’s put in front of you - but the quality in the League is a concern

*Philip Gopal We may just have witnessed the future of Irish rugby 

Noel Hewson Well 9 tries scored with two hat tricks and serious performance from both of the second rows. All good.

*Mike Charnock Can't help but think Leinster need a stronger league to compete in

Kevin Kelehan Trouble at mill is in the national camp not at Leinster!

*Hammer Hogan Well done my magnificent boys in blue. The 3peat is getting closer and closer. I am Leinster for Life. I am also club over country. To many leinster players are chossen for Ireland. The other provinces need to contribute more. Not fair.

Pádraig Turley Baird looks the real deal.

*Peter Coleman Difficult to dissect this result as Glasgow Warriors are an excellent team, suffice to say this is how Rugby should be played. Speechless in Blue.

Derek McGee Ryan Baird. Madre de Dios, what a player.

*Kevin Doran What a performance 'Harlem Globetrotters' esq, brilliant by everyone all 23 andcoaching staff as well

Tom Clarke Conveyor Belt...!

*Damien Gallagher Delighted to see the pace to break the gain line.. The fantastic hands in the off load back to our best.. Would love to see Ireland go the Leinster way 

David Ryle fardy staying is down to the irfu. His contract is up at the end of the season...considering he is mentoring younger players is paying dividends for us.

*Martin O'Donnell Well done Leinster! Ryan Baird!! ...some man for one man! Well done on 3 tries & man of the match! As for the rest, well you make rugby look easy which from painful experience I know is not so! Get in there Leinster, love watching & looking forward to next time I get to watch you live!
