This could be an uncomfortable last 30 for Glasgow

This ref's set piece refereeing has been pretty dodgy

Got to say, Peter Wright's summarising on the red button has been absolutely hilarious tonight!

I'm not sure this referee understands the rules of rugby.

Backs have been excellent. Forwards have not really had a chance to really assert themselves. The game has been played with so much pace. Scrum has been a serious issue; ref in particular

Shame about M Fagerson. Hopeful it is not a ligament gone.

He's given Leinster a scrum penalty regardless what actually happened every single time

Me neither, Glasgow should have seen a yellow there.

Shame for Scotland that Dunbar isn't getting a full run-out - that really was a terrible decision.

I'll still say they are a bunch of erses when it's derby time though

Here comes the Leinster scrum penalty then inevitable yellow card from the resulting lineout...

Need to keep hold of the ball. Time to take Mata off. Played excellently for 60, put Sarto on for the extra defense and to stop any brain farts ruining it.

Also Harley seems to be everywhere and tackling well. I am quite critical of him but he is probably the pick of the forwards with Gibbins second.

Completely ignoring all the Leinster offences in that maul - no consistency with what happened the other end

For all the crap reffing, Glasgow have been poor this half (decent defence aside)

I really do think this referee is out of his depth, he has been grim for both teams.

But I think that was a decent call on the Strauss dive.

Job done Glasgow - BP win and no points for Leinster.

I'm sure Rennie won't be happy with that second half though.

Ref tried his best to give Leinster a hand but Glasgow's first half madness was enough to see things out

Don't whi8nge about the eref. Bar not picking up leinster wheeling the scrum I thought he was excellent. Consistent and got major decisions right

dunbars yellow - he warned Dunbar to let go and Dunbar didn't. 5 m from the line its a yellow every day. regardless of whether you thing Dunbar was OK ( I don't) the ref says hands off you let go

Thanks. I live in Dumbarton, born in England to parents from Cork, but with a Scottish and Bangladeshi grandparent I'm a bit of mongrel - always Irish and Munster first, but been following the Warriors for the last couple of years. I don't think I could ever shout for Leinster though so maybe not an out and out neutral.
My wife secured a ticket for the game from a colleague and really glad I went - probably the best half of Pro12/14 rugby I've witnessed. It had everything and Matawalu is just one crazy guy, but his input certainly made the difference. Really thought Leinster would peg Warriors back in the second half, but the defence was phenomenal especially when half the half was played with a player down.
Despite not being full teams, either of these sides would be extremely difficult to beat in the league this season - personally I can't see Munster doing it so will between these two and Scarlets.
Byrne didn't really control too much at 10, but the rest of the Leinster backs played well without creating a great deal.
Horne was mostly excellent at 10, but he had a terrible time kicking from hand.
Referee was mostly ok, a bit suspect at scrum time. Your Scottish touch judges didn't do you a lot of favours. When Masaga was clear, the call was marginal at best (I was right in line) and looked like the TJ called the forward pass.
Anyway, if every game in the league was as good as that, then we'd have a pretty good product.
