I haven't seen Leinster play that tight/negative that I can remember.slick wrote:Have to say well done Leinster and be magnanimous in defeat. They did deserve it.
If Scotland, Glasgow or Edinburgh we’re winning things playing like this I’d be pretty content I guess. But as an opposition, fudge me its dull, just dreadful rugby. But they are excellent at it, no question.
My only consolation is that if Ireland stick with Sexton and play like that at the WC I think we will beat them, and even if we don’t they have zero chance of going past the QF. Again.
But, fair play, great game, good win, we’ll done.
Usually their phase ball is a bit more exciting than that passage at the end. I'd imagine fatigue of 3 consecutive KO matches played a part.
Agreed on your Sexton comment.
