    Great to see Leavy back on the bench (23, odd) and Hawkshaw also returning from injury. Mick Kearney and Ian Nagle too return to the RDS for Zebre.

    Anyone care to educate me on what Liam Turner is like?

    Turner is a short stocky outside centre. Played 7s last season.

    You couldn't ask for a better opportunity to throw some new names in. Fantastic to see Leavy back. There's a long window of Pro14 games to rotate him in and out.


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 33,061 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pickarooney


    So Leavy has been bionically reconstructed as a winger? You love to see it.

    Dave is hurt.

    Go Leinster.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,303 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    Shut up, thanks Buer.

    JOB been very good.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,024 bayern


    what a kick from JOB again.


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


    An educated left boot from JOB. Two cracking touch finders.


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


    Not clear enough but if they catch it, this is red.


  • Registered Users Posts: 505 ✭✭✭ Morris Moss


    Absolutely nothing in that

    Great move

    Penalty only problem the right call.

    Good finish from Dave Kearney though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,744 ✭✭✭ ongarite


    Very nice pre-planned move for the try


  • Registered Users Posts: 911 ✭✭✭ timple23


    Should a Leinster player have been penalised for grabbing scrum cap of Zebre player? (Not a rugby follower)


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,353 ✭✭✭ schmoo2k


    Absolutely nothing in that

    Nothing deliberate - but any contact in that area has potential to do damage...


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,209 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Didn't see the match thread earlier.

    Ruddock's been the stand out player. Ploughing into every contact. Thought he was excellent in our last game too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,353 ✭✭✭ schmoo2k


    ...appropriate decision thankfully...


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,024 bayern


    great work by JOB.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,209 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Excellent defence from Leinster. The rush pushed Zebre back 20 metres and forced them to kick. Great turnover from Penney then.

    That’s a lovely try and finished well by TOB.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,024 bayern


    lukey very good today.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,744 ✭✭✭ ongarite


    Nice!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,744 ✭✭✭ ongarite


    Very Schmidt like pre-planned strike play scores tonight.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,024 bayern


    Ruddock, JOB, Sheehan and Luke some clear standouts for me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,066 ✭✭✭ Richie_Rich89


    What's the point of a match thread? Nothing wrong with the normal thread. Seems a bit attention seeking if you ask me.


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


    Zebre have been utter dirt. The space and gaps in their defence are ridiculous. The Kearney and TOB tries were AIL level at best by Zebre. No team should have such wide gaps at pro level.

    Good finishes but very simple reverse of play on both occasions into massive holes off first or second phase. A defence shouldn't be that out of shape so quickly.

    This is what I much prefer to see Leinster put out the youngsters and fringe guys for these games. What's the benefit in putting out a stronger team here? Senior guys would get the job done whilst minding themselves.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,024 bayern


    get Dunne on asap.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,074 ✭✭✭ OldRio


    Whilst praising the young guns of Leinster don't forget the effort and experience of Ruddock and Toner.
    Ruddock especially has been very very good.
