    Second of the back to back games, nice timing on a Saturday evening for a few pints before the game.

    Leinster | Northampton
    15. Jordan Larmour | Ahsee Tuala
    14. Dave Kearney | Ollie Sleightholme
    13. Garry Ringrose | Matt Proctor
    12. Robbie Henshaw | Andrew Symons
    11. James Lowe | Taqele Naiyaravoro
    10. Ross Byrne | Dan Biggar
    9. Luke McGrath | Connor Tupai

    20. Max Deegan | JJ Tonks
    21. Jameson Gibson-Park | James Mitchell
    22. Ciarán Frawley | James Grayson
    23. The better looking Kearney | Fraser Dingwall


    Referee: Dan Jones (Wales)
    Assistant referees: Adam Jones & Dewi Phillips (both Wales)
    TMO: Sean Brickell (Wales)

    From the reaction I've seen on the sub, Northampton fans are not overly happy with this team selection on their part.

    Leinster strong favourites here.

    My best guess is that Northampton make a game of it for a half hour before we pull away and get a handy bp.

    Last 20 minutes to be a farce of either inactivity or tries.

    Benetton have beaten Lyon!

    Dave Kearney, on Channel 4, is hoping for 40-45k for attendance for today's match.

    Poxy tickets assigned to sth South stand is even worse than the past few years. Lovely.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,601 ✭✭✭ dublinman1990


    It's dry this evening, with no wintry showers forecast, for this game at the Aviva. It is still freezing cold out there. Do wrap up well when you go to the game.

    He’s dreaming by the looks of it.

    Yes. G'wan Ringrose.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,026 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Perfect start.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Northampton must be furious, what kind of advantage was that? :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,026 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Some kick to top it off by Byrne.

    I'd say Saints fans are fuming

    Try#2 for Rignrose. He is on a roll. :D

    The balance on the man, holy jeepers.

    Is that Ross Byrne I see taking the ball to the line?

    James Lowe is an incredible man.

    You may need a few more oooooooos

    Someone should probably tell the BT commentator that Hartley isn't out injured but he's actually retired...

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


    Is there actually anyone attending this game?

    Tis quiet. Ive manflu anyway, no one wanted my tickets for free


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,158 ✭✭✭✭ kmart6


    3 penalties on Wood so far, high shot and two offsides. Terrible start from a captain.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,224 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    This is absurd.

    Northampton aren't up for this at all and the crowd know it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,026 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Healy gone off for a HIA? Went straight down the tunnel

    Ref going to give some soft penalties here, looked to me like Henshaw had ripped that.
