Excellent way to kick off the weekend is to watch the Barcelona of rugby in action. Leinster by 15.

Its on TG4 as far as I know.

Strong looking team from Leinster. Good to see Ryan back but where's Fitz ? I thought he was due back this week.

As a Leinster fan I salute Scarlets bold strategy of not picking a 9.

He's on a specific conditioning programme as he's been out so long. Same with Conway. Due back against Glasgow I think.

Very strong Leinster team. Really looking forward to this one.
Good to see Ryan in the mix.

Lets hope the weather is slightly better than last weeks game against Treviso.

As I said on the Leinster thread, I'd like to see Cooney on the bench. Boss needs a rest, he'll be playing a silly amount of rugby in the next while, and I think people forget who crucial he is to the squad as he's essentially joint first choice SH.

I'd also like to see a big performance from Ruddock. He's had a couple of mares at 8 before, but this will be a good opportunity to 'right the wrongs' if you will.

Very excited to see that backline in action. Replace Carr with Fitz, Mads with Sexton, and a possibly juggle with Rob, Dave and Isa at FB and Wing, and that could be our first choice backline in the next season or two.

Hope Ferg and EOM have a good day. We've all been begging for this to be a more consistent selection, but they'll have to prove the partnership works first.

Can't wait now. I used to say the H-Cup was better than International Test rugby, but now I'm starting to think the Pro12 offers more as well after light of recent events in the 6N..

Very good team, hoping for a very strong performance.

Looking forward to seeing McGrath and Hagan in the scrum, hopefully they can not only hold their own, but do a bit of damage.

Great to see Ryan back. And Ruddock back in the team after clearing up one or two issues

Deacon Manu is pretty useless at scrum time so he should get his head shoved out his backside.

Connacht are far more interesting to watch than Munster....

Is Ruddock staying at Leinster? He's back to being a good player now, I suppose

I predict maximum pain for the Scarlets in this one
