Leinster will win. Doesn't really matter who they play along the way.

Bordeaux next round please. Home or away, Leinster will eat them alive.
Yep ,I’d be confident taking on Bordeaux in France. If Racing sneaked through today I’m sure they’d have their shit together for the semi. Clermont/Toulouse away is the draw we don’t want obviously

The IRFU should take the initiative, (for the sake of Leinster and the rugby fraternity), and play the interpro matches anyway. That would at least give some warm up for the Leinster SF. Two rounds, then HEC SF, Final round, week off, then HEC final.
Ahem...
We have a semi final too ya know :D
Good luck in the semi
Great 2nd half yesterday and Hendo to come back.

Ok Leinsterites, what's the preferred draw for us home or away?
Not too bothered who we get at home but maybe it would be good to get Toulouse
As for away - Bordeaux maybe? La Rochelle are considered the weakest team left but they're still bloody good at home

Leinster are a level above all the other semi-finalists. Toulouse might beat them in a one off final but if the played 10 times leinster would win 6 or 7 times. The other two teams 1 or 2 out of 10.

Despite being a bit Shakey, I hope Larmours brace over the weekend helps get him back on track. Second try in particular was brilliantly finished.
Keenan was class, missed tackle aside. I was completely wrong about him initially.

You weren’t alone tbf , there was a lot of nonsense being talked about how average and limited Hugo was . He’s a class act and will continue to improve

Nice to see La Rochelle get a crack off Leinster. They won't win but they play a nice brand of rugby and will hopefully give them a game.

Leicester have been very average for a long time now, narrowly avoiding relegation last year. Ulster should have too much for them.

The one thing he didn't do so well in the 6 nations was join the line at pace, draw and pass to his winger, but he did that brilliantly yesterday. He's pure class.

Watching the match again and at the bit where Sexton goes off. There's no sign of a head knock on the footage that I can see...

Could have been the shuddering tackle a bit before. Might have been showing some signs post that tackle.
