Should they?

If Leinster had managed to convert one of those lengthy forays into the Munster 22 it would have been a fairly comfortable win, I suspect.

It's bad luck more than anything.

ROG replaced Humphreys - arguably with the latter being discarded slightly early - before being replaced by Sexton - arguably with the latter not being used soon enough - and then Sexton would probably have been dethroned by Jackson and/or Carberry.
