Since RDW can’t bring himself to create another Edinburgh match thread, figured I’d give it a whirl...

Reasons to be optimistic...
 Tumbleweed 


Reasons to be pessimistic...
. Our form (hammered by Munster, lost to Glasgow, lost to Zebre, lost to the Blues)
. Their form (only lost once in the rabo this year)
. The RDS factor (when did we last win over there?)
. Missing players
 - Big Jack Cuthbert is off to the 7's, Tom Brown injured. Do we even have a back 3?
 - Do we have any second rows left who aren't volleyball players?)
. Our players are knackered (Congrats to Nel on the 50 caps!)
. We're Scottish

Final thought...
Given that torture is illegal under international law, I strongly urge you to write to your MP's and maybe Amnesty as well and see if we can't stop this match from happening.

Good job Glove!

I am very glad this isn't on TV.

In fact, I don't think I'm even going to check the score...

Leinster could put out their under 16 team and get a win here.

Some other news - Solomons is suggesting the Du Preez will be rested / checked in to the chronic exhaustion ward (I'm sure that's a thing), and Hamish Watson might make a return.  I'd be surprised if VDV returned.

Suspected team then:

Leonardi
Watson

Actually the fact it's not being broadcast over here probably gives us something to put in the reasons to be optimistic column!

Genius thread Graham. I would take issue with the last issue to be pessimistic though. Not many Scots in the last line up and I would think that there won't be too many here.

If it was available, I genuinely would consider the option of just sending the 5 points to Leinster with a king size Toblerone and a stripper without having to engage in the farcical jamboree of another fisting on the pitch.

No Edinburgh need to go out, not worry about the scoreline and rough up Leinster as much as possible. Just make it as physically bruising a game as possible within the laws.

Alan Solomons, we made you an honorary Ulsterman- do us this one favour!

Quality rider, Notch.

In short; play like Sarries in the HEC semi rather than Ulster at home just of recent, .

I'm tempted to add the advice to test the fb as Kearney shouldn't be there if there's any justice. But that depends on the citing committee. And the wheels of justice are buckled and bent and grind exceeding slow.

I wonder what team Leinster will put out?

The only really need a point from this game, and there is no chance they will lose even if they massively rotate their team.

Do you realise Ulster were top of the Pro12 FairPlay league for most of the season and at the time of the Saracens game? Tom Court was a naughty boy, Jared Payne was unlucky as opposed to malicious, but most teams in the league are 'dirtier' than us.

I always want to see us play within the laws and we generally do. I've only seen two red cards in my entire time as an Ulster season ticket holder (going into my seventh year) and do not recall any before that period. Unfortunately, they seem to be like buses  censored

We're still top of the FairPlay league  angel  In fact the Provinces are top three, with the wayward Leinster at 7th.

I fully expect that Edinburgh will be horsed in this game from start to finish, unless Leinster get the points they need early doors and then use the rest of the match as a practice session for ball retention and not to score tries, or let their props attempt drop goals from their own try line.  Given that I can’t see this happening, I think this season will end in an incredibly embarrassing meek manner.

Also loving the Edinburgh Facebook page commenting that they have been inundated with questions about season tickets for next year!!  If this is true (and not some pathetic attempt at marketing…..) who are these people that are so excited about next season they are wanting to get their season ticket already!!!  I can only assume this is due to:

A) These people haven’t  seen us play in the last couple of years,
B) Glasgow fans on the windup (I’m looking at you Shiz, ASBO, GC),
C) Solomans, has created several FaceBook accounts to try and make out that this season has been a success and fans are going to flock in to watch next year,
D) Figments of Edinburgh rugby’s imagination.

Anyway, back to the match, congratulations on your win Leinster, and I fully support GC’s suggestion of just giving you the points now and letting the Edinburgh players go on holiday/dole queue with what little pride they can muster between them.

Edinburgh fans, nil desperandum, it's easier than you would think to have a go at Les Blues. Field 14 men against them and they go to pieces, it almost worked for us at the weekend. Perhaps 13 men would leave them too confused to play Smile

Pete - Edinburgh's first XV is already the aggregate equivalent of having 12 or 13 players on the field in terms of impact.

Keep reading about Solomon's upcoming player recruitment, can't happen/start fast enough, Edinburgh fans need something to sustain their interest. Great if we signed some gems; eg John Hardie, Tom Heathcote, Matty Russell etc etc but we'll no doubt get some more NSQs instead.

A 7 would actually be a good signing given that Rennie is leaving.

Not that Solomons actually plays 7s at openside.

Someone of the same impact as Holmes has had at Glasgow would be ideal - not necessarily international class (we've got to be realistic) but worthy of his starting spot if called upon.

Solomons doesn't appear to be interested in traditional openside flankers, very much preferring his back row players to be allrounders with no particular defined role.

I do think we need someone more competitive at the ruck area, who has that body shape to be able to get over the ball and compete. I can count on one finger the number of meaningful turnovers (in favour of Edinburgh - an important qualification) I can recall this season.

fES, the breakdown isn't a one man game, every player in the team need to takle with the right technique, get up on their feet as soon as possible and contest the ball within the rules, it really is an art to master from 1 to 23 and i haven't seen Edinburgh doing it.

Sure having a classic openside hepls but it isn't everything.

That's completely true and I agree 100 per cent. But the best sides in the world have a classic openside as well as competing as a team on the ground. Every player needs to have that skill, but the very best opensides excel at it. There's also the added mobility around the park with having a proper breakaway flanker.

This match is the official send of for BOD (last home game of the regular season) so he will probably be starting.

Matt Scott vs BOD. The future versus the past. Perhaps this game will be worth watching.....

Let's be honest, this is a pretty good fixture for BOD to have as his final game. There's a good chance we'll be pretty accommodating in defence so he ought to score a try or four.

Watch out for Strauss at 12 for Edinburgh though. You'll not have seen a centre with so few standout qualities. He's a leader apparently, but I've yet to see his searing leadership qualities cause the opposition any defensive issues.

The other player to look out for is Mike Coman. Seriously, look out for him, he's not easy to spot on the rugby field. He's another "leader" though, so watch out for that.

They are, now. But the planning for this started before we were guaranteed anything, so they went for the last home game of the regular season.

It’s also Leo Cullen’s last game before he retires as a player and becomes our forwards coach next year.

Only Sinatra got more.

Yeah, so far we’ve had, his last home game for Ireland, his last actual game for Ireland, and….?

Hardly in the Shane Williams category of long goodbyes.

You forgot the last only time he was dropped from the Lions.....  Run 

Fixed!

Not to mention his last European game against 'Jonny', aka 'Stuart Barnes massages himself for two hours'.

It's actually fitting that BODs last home fixture for Leinster outside of the playoffs sees him facing some of the great players of world rugby: Wicus Blaauw, James Hilterbrand, Mike Coman, Dmitri Basilia, Tomas Leonardi, Carl Bezuidenhout, Piers Francis, Sam Beard and Andries Strauss. The Harlem Globetrotters of the rugby world, only different (i.e. without the fun, colour and success).

In fact, 80 minutes against our shower and he'll probably postpone his retirement. BOD at 70 would probably prosper against our blitz/drift/still drifting/dog leg/vacant defence.

Just for the avoidance of doubt, I'm a slightly disillusioned Edinburgh season ticket holder at the moment.

Perceptive Leinster posters may already have picked up something of a lack of confidence amongst its happy-go-lucky fans in Edinburgh's ability to take the TBP in this fixture.  chin

I think you'll find that this is the typical Edinburgh fan:
