    Leinster travelling to the only team this season to give them a decent game in the RDS.

    Treviso have been decent at home this season - some good wins and some tight defeats, I fear this match more than the last two games.

    That said I think we are only missing 4 players from our best possible 23 - Sexton, Kelleher, Fardy and Conan, so we should have enough to get it done comfortably enough, particularly when we only need a win.

    Agreed, don't think this will be a 5 pointer, but we don't need it to be a 5 pointer, any win and we're top seed. We sent a strong side earlier in the season to Benetton and beat them well enough without conceding many points, would be nice to get a repeat of that.

    Treviso with nothing to play for, 6 of the 23 watching themselves for the 6 nations, reserves in many positions.....
    Leinster needing the win at least for top spot so that will keep the benetton at arms length.... and are scoring for fun these days.

    bookies have leinster -17 and ive taken that

    It wasnt actually. It ended 27-32. It was 27-22 to Benetton going into the last quarter. That one swung one way and then the other throughout.

    I think a 5 pointer will result in the most points ever accumulated in the pool stages of the Euro cup, 29.

    Joint most, it has been done before. Biarritz did it in 2007.

    Starting to drizzle here now, not as bad as what was forecast. Still saying 70/80% from kick off time though, going to be a wet one which would suit them I’d say.

    If anyone has a stream feel free to PM. No joy at all today.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,307 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    Ringrose get a bit of a clobber in the head in that phase of play?

    That nearly backfired on Lowe there, everyone else just looked asleep


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,225 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Get that man into the lineout.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,029 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Treviso pls. You're already out, just let us have the 5 points and roll over.

    Peter O'Mahony doesn't like this post. ;)

    7 penalties conceded in 24 mins. This is an absolute joke


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,749 ✭✭✭ A-Train


    Shocking start to this match by Leinster. Penalty after penalty giving away. Going to be a long day


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,220 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg

    By the looks of it that's exactly what Leinster thought before kickoff. Abject display so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,248 kingofthekong


    Leinster pack looking lazy and getting completley outworked, theyre sitting back expecting things to just happen for them without having to fight for it.....poor showing so far


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,708 ✭✭✭✭ Interested Observer


    Treviso aren't being reffed. The state of that maul.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,248 kingofthekong


    Ross Byrne also having a shocker

    This will finish 3-0.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,029 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    It's been such a strange performance so far. We haven't really been getting quick ball, and Treviso have had a number of turnovers because our pack aren't getting the clearouts. Discipline has been shocking too.

    Conditions are fairly poor, but it's been the polar opposite of what we've seen so far this year and it's a bit concerning.

    A real classic this.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,045 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    At last!

    These guys need a rollicking at half time!

    It's the same every time we play Benetton. They are really good at slowing down ball and just play a low risk attacking game. We need to be better at dealing with it though,

    5 points look like a pipe dream here. This game looking more and more like a a major banana skin.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,708 ✭✭✭✭ Interested Observer


    He was just roaring at 10 white to stop, 10 white completely ignores him, and he just plays on?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,248 kingofthekong


    Leinster are so passive and sluggish


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,365 CMod ✭✭✭✭ awec


    Leinster look like they thought they just had to turn up and Treviso wouldn't be arsed.
