Online comments after Leinster v Montpellier

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 13 tries. And only for handing errors and players being a little rusty from not playing for a month it couldn't been a lot more. Relentless punishment to prove a point, never let up and thats the mentality I want to see every game for the rest of the season

Richard Mifsud Following the ridiculously unfair decision by @ChampionsCup in R2 I asked that we do our talking on the pitch by completely eviscerating the next opponents It would appear we did just that, better still, we weren’t at our best 🙏🏻

Gav Heg Awful awful Montpellier performance so disappointed they got on the scoreboard.

A few rusty bits of play coupled with some outstanding performances. Somehow vdf just keeps getting better and better, molony again a solid and consistent performer, Great pace from jgp (such fast distribution) and ringer back to his best.

We did what we needed to do.

Reenen Stenekamp As a long time Montpellier fan, this was painful. Gulf in class between the two 23s was monstrous. Congrats to an extremely clinical Leinster who just couldn't put a foot wrong. Totally focused.

Andrew Bailey Can you think of a time any Irish province has disrespected the European Cup. Yet French and English teams do it as a matter of course. Good Leinster performance but the competition suffered again today

Sinead Judge Thoughts are with montpellier after that absolute thrashing.. Has to be embarrassing especially when leinster didn't reach full throttle

Alan Murphy Delighted that we played a game. However it was awful. The only way the competition can survive is if games are competitive. Any more results like this and Exeter’s yesterday and it becomes a bit farcical, particularly in the current format.

Mick Keogh Should give the lads a month off over Christmas every year.

Odran John OBrien Outstanding performance by Leinster bit rusty with handing but some lovely moves

Barba Ovale did Montpellier even reach the stadium?

Martin Loughrey I almost got bored watching Leinster score.

Paul Smith Wondering what the scoreline would have been if we weren't ring rusty 🤣

Noel Hewson Did what they needed to do. Not much more to say really.

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
