First topic message reminder :

Leinster vs Edinburgh
Saturday 22nd Sept
KO: 19.35
Venue: RDS Arena
Live on Premier Sports 2, eir sport 1

Previous meetings
Edinburgh 29 - 24 Leinster

These two have faced each other on 30 previous occasions, Leinster having the advantage with 19 wins to Edinburgh's 11.

Leinster have started the season well, whilst still being able to rest a few, Edinburgh on the otherhand have played well in their games so far, but have been undone by not being able to see games out.  I can't imagine that'll be a problem at the weekend, as I doubt Edinburgh will get to a position to let a lead slip.

Officials:
Referee: Dan Jones (WRU)
AR1: Adam Jones (WRU) AR2: Chris Busby (IRFU)
TMO: Simon McDowell (IRFU)

Shame no points yet but penalty count fo Leinster went up a bit there. Get back down near the line and the ref may go for the card if we can attack like that again.

That looked a bit synical there! Thought Edinburgh player deliberately kicked ball in the ruck as scrum half went for it.

Can you go to the TMO for something like that?? Thought it was only tries or foul play

Edinburgh seem to have forgotton they have backs. Second try by Leinster was very good indeed. Why Edinburgh did not use their backs when camped on the line I really don't get. men waiting for a walk in

No panic stations yet but Edinburgh need to attack through the hands a bit more in the 2nd half now. No point trying to grind the Leinster defence down like they were doing when it was 7 - 0. A charge down try and a try from a lineout that was originally deemed to be Edinburgh's by the ref. Just a bit unlucky really although Leinster have clearly been the better team in attack. I still think Edinburgh can pul it back if they score early on. Another Leinster try would be worrying and then perhaps finsing a losing BP would be the goal and denying them the bonus try.

Yes. Law 3.4
If an Edinburgh player pretends the ball didn’t go off him into touch, the ref is allowed to review.
Normal sanction: Penalty try and YC

Got off lucky.

Ultimately it was the right call (perhaps a knock on though) but I've never seen the ref use the TMO for something like that.

Seriously? First of all i didn't see him deny it hit him, Edinburgh were claiming Lowe was out first. Also, there's no way in a hell a ref would have given a YC and certainly not a PT from that!

I thought you could dive over in that situation?

Ball was on the floor so didn't have to let him up, and no ruck was formed.

4th Leinster try was inevitable, but it was positive to see Schoeman and McCallum holding up the scrum against Test Lions
