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.

Apologies for the lateness of this week's "Feel free..." post on Facebook.  We normally schedule it for 2 hours after the kickoff time (which was 3pm Irish time), but Benetton v Leinster was finished unusually early (2:40pm).  
Many thanks to those who still contributed.

Conor Cronin  61 points on the road and the BP we wanted is a great result. Not always pretty, but far more efficient today than the previous 3 outings and a team that's coming together much better this week. Special mentions to McCarthy who's progressing well, McGrath who's speed at the ruck was better this week and O'Brien for another try saving tackle!

Also important to say that though he could've shown a card on more than one occasion, aside from that Whitehouse had a good game. I'd love to see that again!

Sean Michaels Benetton were poor, but you can only play what’s in front of you. Whilst it’s showing that the team is starting to gel I don’t think Messer’s Cullen & Lancaster will be resting on their laurels as there are more testing games on the horizon where any sloppy play will be punished.Thought McGrath was a lot sharper with his delivery, consequently we could build on the quicker ball. Special mention to J McCarthy

Dave Murray 5 points and let's hope the Byrne brothers are ok

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
