Outlook


It's hard to see anything but a Leinster win here. This is an ideal opportunity for Leinster to get 5 points against an Edinburgh side that only mustered a try bonus point against Zebre in the final minutes. With a tough trip to Ulster the following week, this might be a good opportunity for Leinster to rest/not risk a few key players.

For Edinburgh, I don't think a top 6 place is vital. Of course it would be nice to see the likes of Toulon/Saracens/Wasps/Racing come to Murrayfield although it would not help to develop young players (or the whole team tbh). I'd like to see Edinburgh use the run-in to finish the season on a high and bring back the strong defence that has gone on holiday recently.

Both teams doing well in the breakdown - barely go a few phases without a turnover penalty!

The game could be over by now, you have got to be in it to win it. A chance to re-set at half time, surely they can improve with the ball in second half.

Yes RDW, I thought the exact same thing regarding the penalty mess up.

Just feel if Edinburg had Glasgows backline they would be so good!

I just logged in to say that is at minimum a yellow, wouldn't argue with a red, and arguably as he is the only tackler left, a penalty try.

They really need to ENFORCE penalty tries properly, don't you think?

Anyway well deserved win Leinster either way - obviously!

I'm sorry, I hate to complain about refereeing, but I'm not sure which is more sickening: the tackle or the squirming of the officials to avoid giving a card.

I can't say anything more without shattering the swearing filter.

Absolutely.  Total bottle / wrong call by the ref.  Did I hear him say something to the effect that "he didn't have time " to get the arms round?
