    Edinburgh are a team that have real niggle about them. A very very good pack that love to slow it up and very hard to break down.

    Looking forward to this game

    Weather could be a bit crappy but it’s a bloody strong selection from Leinster while Edinburgh seem to have rested a few guys. We need to be targeting a TBP win here. 16 from a possible 20 that included 2 away games in Wales would be a very fine start to the season.

    Larmour is going to be the talking point after this game.

    It will be interesting to see if he’s getting so many starts in close to full strength teams because Lancaster sees him as potential first choice this season. My feelings are that he is still behind Kearney but is pushing for inclusion in Heineken match day starting lineups despite the competition in back 3 being fierce.

    Stop start so far.

    Excellent counter ruck from Lowe to follow up ripping the ball off their No. 8 in the air.

    Ryan starting very well too.

    Edinburgh with an excellent passage of play. They were moving the ball so smoothly despite Leinster trying to disrupt their possession a number of times. They look p*ssed off ater last week.

    Great block and then pick up from Dev


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,031 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Amazing. I wanted him to cross the line with it so bad.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,226 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Omg.. can you imagine if Toner scored that himself. Try of the year material!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,199 ✭✭✭ MaybeMaybe


    Some savage skills from the ref


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,400 CMod ✭✭✭✭ awec


    Big Dev offside


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,226 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Knock on there possibly.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Love the footage of Toner making that run and reaching the ball back.

    That all came from the 9 panicking because the ref told him he had 5 seconds to use it. Happy to see refs being a bit more strict when they tell players to use it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Incredible passage of defence and ineptitude from Edinburgh.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,226 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    That was sensational defending from Leinster.

    It was but Edinburgh just decided to try and out muscle them in an 8 v 8 battle in a tight space. It was the height of stupidity. The first time they tried to do something different they nearly got in and won penalty advantage.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,226 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    This is a brutally physical game. So many big hits, VdF folded a lad earlier and has been monstering in defence in that last passage, pretty huge performance from him.

    We look a bit flat.

    Yeah it was very one dimensional. But it takes a massive amount of concentration and physicality to keep a side out for 30+ phases.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    A lot of sloppy knock ons.

    Amazing footwork from Healy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,226 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Try was on there.

    Should've spun the ball wide when we were under the posts.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,226 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    That carry from Healy deserved a try.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,226 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    A loop with Toner as pivot.

    Sweet Jesus.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    No idea what happened there in real time! Some slick hands.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,745 ✭✭✭ ongarite


    Lowe with a great finish.

    Lovely offload from Larmour and finish from Lowe as well.
