It's Healy, not Furlong. Healy keeps getting penalised for driving at an angle. According to Mitrea at least, who doesn't know what to do at the scrum.

I'm sure you've lifted a leg before and nothing bad happened.

Evans off, when someone gets under him he really struggles.

The Leinster backs will be asking why their pack can't win a lineout!

Was it Furlong or McGrath who had two absolute stormers against the ABs in Chicago then Dublin? I can't remember which but he smashed them everywhere.

Furlong. Especially when he threw Read to the ground.

Leinster looking toothless - far too predictable from Sefton and Henshaw

To be fair, even if the Scarlets do not win this game with 14 men, they deserve to be in the final compared to Leinster who have been abysmal.

Not sure Scarlets should have taken their halfbacks off so early.

Biggar or Farrell for the Lions 10 then, maybe even Hogg for the first game.

Scarlets a winger down and we've not seen a single Leinster backs move going wide since.

Got to hand it to Scarlets they took their chances well. It'd be nice to see them make an impact in Europe

Or he could just play in the warm up games such as the NZ barbarians game?

Fair play to Scarlets - can't say they don't deserve that.

That's the worst Leinster performance I think I've ever seen though!

Agree on all counts there, Scarlets were excellent and they forced a lot of mistakes from Leinster with their line speed, intensity and ferocity

What a waste of a season for Leinster. Produce their worst performances at the end. However, I do think that's why a league competition should remain as a league competition. You could be the best team for the entire season and then lose it at the end.

Yeah that's the one. I didn't see the Chicago game but heard both props were good there too.
