This is like watching Celtic dominate Scottish football. Go into Europe and have to play an actual good side. And get stuffed.

Won every game this season. Sarries got players out on loan. Playing at home. Should be a good second half

Honestly a bizarre half considering Leinster’s season so far

I’ll cry if I’ve to look at Sexton and Luke McGrath in green in a few weeks

What the hell is wrong with Leinster, they look like a team that are at the end of a monstrous run of games and don't have an ounce of energy left.

Leinsters problem is the preparation. Every game has been easy up to this.

We've been average since the return. If we had a full crowd then home advantage would matter. Instead it's nearly more in Sarries favour.

That's such a lame quote. We were all worried about this one.

Nobody said we're better than everyone else, we just know we're much better than Ulster.

As good as Sarries have been, Leinster have been crap. Sarries have been playing the same way for years but Leinster seem completely unprepared for it. Albeit the scrum going to absolute shite hasn’t helped.

They are used to being the bigger team, and winning collisions as a result. Saracens are the bigger team today.

It's a lot more than that, they look like their wearing iron boots since the start.
