Definite shift to more of an offloading game in attack from us over last two games. Trying to keep the ball alive a lot.

Agreed. Great to see, will take time to bed in and get use to so we'll have to live with the mistakes for a while.

Ah what a class line from Lowe. Brilliant.

Keenan is far better at 15. Looks really comfortable.

Great to see on the 7 man scrums that the flankers are keeping the heads down and focusing on the scrum rather than the threat of the pick. Lessons learnt

Lowe’s 33rd try for Leinster. Any chance he could become our record try scorer? Probably not with his likely involvements with Ireland from this year on.

Baird' is a brute in the carry. Really accelerates into contact. Only qualm would be he's often a bit high, but he's a tough man to hold up!

Still a long way to go to catch Shaggy's 69 tries.
Look out Itchy, he's Irish

Puts him level with Dr.Phil though.

Ross Byrne closing in on 5th place for most points for Leinster.

Straight off their feet at two rucks in a row there, nothing given, he penalised us for it in the first half. Good man Ben.

Garbisi looks like a bit of a baller.

We're struggling with their pack's power. Wouldn't mind seeing Healy & Ruddock on to beef us up.

Looks like Larmour will be out for a few weeks.

He’s stopped calling offside penalties this half also. Ben101.

Ed Byrne is turning into a tasty scrummager. Went through the sub TH there.

Edit - Ah sorry that might've been Healy actually :lol:

That's good reffing in fairness. Had to be a penalty try in any case. We'd driven them over the line.

Mitrea was determined not to give the scrum try. Home TMOs in the league are often quite biased, especially the Welsh ones (unlikely home refs, who usually actually aren't biased).
