    Scarlets are missing nearly as many players as we are at the moment. And it shows I think. Our pack should get the job done and hopefully the backs can cut loose a bit a rack up a score. We had scored TBPs in every game up to last week, where we finally failed to get one. We dont want to let that become a habit. :p

    Backline could be really good with ball in hand. Defense I’m not so sure about but after watching Scarlets last week, that’s not so concerning.


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


    Oh. Leinster were very close to get a try there from DK.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,627 ✭✭✭ crisco10


    Leinster doing lots right. Just not sticking so far.


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


    Lovely kick from Byrne there to set that up.

    These jerseys are such an eyesore though.

    Lucky he let Tracy take that again.


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


    Surprised Leinster didn't make more of that incident of the knock on. O'Reilly was apparently annoyed about something and there was a hint of an early tackle which caused the knock on.

    Lovely kick from Harry Byrne to create this 5m scenario although a very kind bounce lent a helping hand.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,627 ✭✭✭ crisco10


    Scrums are taking an eternity (more than usual) so far.

    I can't wait untill refs start to pay attention to the Tap and go with a prebind being a penalty offence again.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,627 ✭✭✭ crisco10


    Loving leavys eye for a try there.

    Nice carry from Conan to make that. Looking really physical out there and more like the Conan of 18 months ago.

    Leavy doing a standard openside job.


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


    Nice score from Leavy.

    Ach that was shocking

    Huge gap in the line


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,025 ✭✭✭ Former Former Former


    Ah lads.

    Leavy and Tracy completely messed it up


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


    Great response. Really highlighted the midfield weakness that Leinster often have in these games. Tracy didn't have the athleticism to adjust but the gap between himself and the inside man was way too large.


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


    Tracy slightly out of position but Leinster a bit asleep after the restart.


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


    Think that was more on Leavy shooting up beside Conan leaving the massive gap that Tracy was never going to be able to cover across. Good line from the Scarlets 8 didn't help matters either.


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


    How's this not going straight to TMO? Clearly lifted and brought down on upper body on live footage.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,750 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    2 great passes all the same

    How the hell was that not a yellow??? At least a yellow, that is. McGrath didn't hassle him at all to watch it again. Ridiculous.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 294 ✭✭ Scratchly


    If that's checked I'm sure it would look horrendous in slow motion.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,160 ✭✭✭ Burkie1203


    Harry just got dumped on his head there


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 294 ✭✭ Scratchly


    So the ref acknowledged it was a dangerous tipp tackle but ignored the part where he lands on his head?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,212 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    What

    A

    Maul


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,627 ✭✭✭ crisco10


    Thought refs call of "same maul" was a bit generous.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 291 ✭✭ Morathi


    Frawley getting stuck in nicely for the opening 20 mins, great to see.


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


    Lovely maul and try.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,433 ✭✭✭✭ thomond2006


    Some maul. Absolute massacre.
