Don't know if Adam has any siblings but the other Byrnes do.

Match Preview

Leinster completed the double over Bath with the minimum of fuss.

Luckily the weather was calm enough in the first half to allow Leinster to build a dominant lead and even if the second half was a scrappy affair in the wind and rain, the job had been done. Leinster now have the group decider against Toulouse to look forward to but before that they have a full round of Christmas derbies, home to Connacht and Ulster with a trip to Munster squeezed in between.

The Byrne brothers, of course, are not related.

It's a big test for COB, if he comes through this one then I think he becomes a live option for bigger games and might just be added to the European squad.

I'm pretty confident we'll win, there's enough from 1-10 to get us on top. Hope Adam Byrne keeps up his good form.
I think we have the smarts in the backrow and enough power in the engine room.

Agree that it's huge for COB. He doesnt need to do any moments of genius. But winning the gainline battle here shows that you can do it at a higher level.

Big one for Keenan too. He hasn't been exposed yet, Connacht might well try.

Ospreys currently beating Scarlets. Seems likely they’ll win at this point, hopefully also deny Scarlets a losing BP. Hopefully we do the job today and put ourselves 19 points clear of Scarlets, 15 clear of Ulster with both teams to come to the RDS.

Feels like we have the conference wrapped up already at this point. We have 7 home games and 4 away games remaining. Both chasers at home and two of our away games are against Zebre and Edinburgh.

I’d only worry about losing in Thomond and Ravenhill.

Well Scarlets got the losing bonus point. Could have gotten a draw — Sam Davies kicked it out 5 meters from his own line thinking the game was over but the ref said the stadium clock was wrong [FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY]

Scarlets really have gone backwards this year. Beirne and Barclay are huge losses for them.

The results haven’t been good this season so far for sure, but they have been ravaged by injuries. I think as Leinster supporters, you tend to forget that we’re in a pretty unique position in regards to squad depth.

Their lame duck coach probably doesn't help. Not questioning the proffessionalism but it must be a bit of an open wound on the psyche.

Better side lost tonight, George let umpteen forward passes go. Then there was penalty after the knock on that wasn't. Sickener.
