Online comments after Leinster v Munster

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.

Martin Loughrey Anyone got a defibrillator handy?? Messy game. Good result. We didn't have a lot of our precision. The breakdown was patchy, and if I'm honest, Munster possibly a wee bit stronger for most of the game. Glad to have the win! Strange how quickly they kicked it out at the end though.

Michael Ellison Really enjoyed it. A great effort for the first game back, bodies falling all over the place.

Emma Hempenstall I thought it was a great first game back. As leinster supporter it was great to see them back in action. Few issues to be worked on but to be expected. But I also enjoyed watching so munster players back too.

Colm Cunningham So glad to have rugby back. Leinster played well and very impressed by baird again. He is a serious talent.

Nneil Keegan Loved that!
Rustiness in patches from both teams but the intensity was there from the off
Both teams won, munster built momentum in a loss and leinster keep the run going while seeing there’s work to be done
Delighted to have our game back!

Stuart McHugh Unreal standard after 5-6 months of uncompetitive action/training.

Michelle Tobin Cracking game. Devastating injuries. Much faster pace and higher intensity than I've seen in the opening games of any rugby tournament so far. Exciting for Ireland with 8 internationals between now and Christmas.

Shawn Wright A bit sloppy in the beginning... Seemed to get their mojo back in the end. Need to work on line outs and box kicking

Noel Cuddy As a Leinster fan CJ was class but J10 immense. Leinster will learn a lot more from that than Munster. A different ref will result in a different game against them in two weeks . I’d be worried if Munster fan

Kevin O Brien Better team lost but do I care???? 😉

Martin Lynch Great Result . Bit Ring Rusty . Ref Very Harsh On Toner . But 22 Unbeaten .

Niall Purcell JVDF that is all... Fair play to both teams for a full blooded affair too.

Micheal Mac An TSagart Was wondering how Earls was running over someone in the corner, then realised that it was a scrum half. That falls on Leo only having two backs in the subs.

Any idea why the Munster scrum half kicked the ball out at the end? They happy with a 2 point loss to Leinster now?

Carolyn Geelon What an incredible intercept by Dev 👏🏻👏🏻

Paul Smith Always happy to take a win, especially against the old enemy. Doris was MOM for me. Both sides played their part in a good game which was even better if you pressed Mute every time Tolland said anything. Good to be back 💙. Allez Les Bleus !!!

Kathryn Keegan Close game  Well done both teams

Dónal Foley Biggest work ons are claiming kicks, lineout and breakdown.
Biggest positives, our attack, our scrum and most importantly, rugby being back

Bert McLoughlin Great to be talking about, watching live and reading post game comments about Leinster again 💙💙💙

Shawn Wright A bit sloppy in the beginning... Seemed to get their mojo back in the end. Need to work on line outs and box kicking

Tony Mcdevitt We WON nuf said
