Wonder what it means for his Lions tour. Personally, I would rather none of our players went but I am sure he would be devastated, so I'm sorry for him.

Interestingly, they have brought Ross Byrne onto the bench.
He certainly deserves to be in the mix but surely that totally alters how the bench would have been intended to be used?


SOB missing with injury,yet again...... not really a surprise anymore :cry:


Leavy will be making his 26th appearance for Leinster this season. That's 6 more than SOB has played in the past 3 seasons (6,6,8)! :?

I'm slightly nervous about this. Has the feel of an ambush in waiting...

I think ulster was a hgreat ambush, which is why we are playing the form team in the league. If it was neutral ground it would be tighter odds but Leinster fear nobody at home.

Scarlett's will fancy their chances though in their form.

AB at fault for the Scarlets try.

Mitrea is completely lost at the scrums. Should have had 2 penalties on Scarlets scrums so far.

Scarlets miles offside all the time.

Williams never released McGrath at any point there. Mitrea is awful.

The player who just assaulted Sexton should be off. No excuses.

Nothing in that BBC? Elbow dropped to the face when he's on the floor!

Mitrea left his balls at home.

Yet more foul play from the Scarlets. They should be down to 13. Welsh commentators talking nonsense.

Mitrea utterly wrong on the scrum again. Only reason he gave the red is because he absolutely had to.

How the feck are we being drawn into a game like this?
Completely cancelling our pack advantage and playing fast and loose. Need more control from Johnny and less risk to our game.

Something is off with Johnny, kicking from hand is short, isn't taking kicks at goal, running gait seems off, passing, handling,decision-making etc isn't quite right.

Yet another clueless scrum pen from Mitrea. A loosehead will not aim to drag down a tighthead - they will aim to get under and drive them up. Simple physics - but beyond him.

Terrible performance altogether so far, really need to get some points on the board and bring it back to a one score game. Not making near enough headway against a 14 man team at the moment.

I think we're done guys. 20 mins into second half and if anything it's been worse.

Aside from all the little errors, our half backs are losing us this game. Sexton is clearly injured and Gibson-Park is having an absolute mare. Caused one of their tries, numerous bad decisions, poor passes, poor kicks, etc. Get Sexton off ASAP.
