Online comments after Benetton 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.

(not a lot to choose from this week, wasn't much a match to comment on, to be fair!)

Paul Smith A professional job done against a decent side. Very scrappy at times, with the constant scrum resets and Whitehouse been Whitehouse but Leinster know how to win and proved it again today. Larmour looked bad, hopefully he's ok but didn't look great the way he went off. Ross is turning into a machine off the tee and well deserved his MOM.

Conor Cronin Priority was to get a win, job done. Beneton have really improved their level throughout their time in this competition, but at times dragged leinster down to their level, forced us to play their way. In glad we've got the BP, scored some good tries, worked hard at defense. Lots of positives to take away from it.

On Whitehouse, he gets most of the big calls right, the problem is how he misses the little things, like Keenan not being allowed to get up before the Beneton man tackled him, and this led to huge pressure on leinster and an eventual try.

Noel Hewson Always a tough game. Good BP win hope Larmour injury is not too serious. Penalty count still a concern but they continue to win in spite of it.

Alan Murphy Time heals all wounds. We eventually grind most teams down.

Brian Patrick Donnelly Death, taxes and scratchy matches in Treviso ...

Denis Mcnamara Zzzzzzzz

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
