Josh Murphy playing his way into the team next week for me. Rhys could play 8.

Deegan having a good game too though, getting through a lot of dirty work.

Deegan has been really good actually, would be very happy if he performed like this every week.

It would only work for certain games but I'd love to see VDF and Connors play together at some stage. They don't have the power of Underhill and Curry but it could still be a great combo at times.

Good to see Kerins playing well. Thought he was outstanding at 20s level.

The players really were pissed off by that John Muldoon conversion. No more Mr Nice Guy when we visit the Sportsground.

Excellent all round but the entire back row incredible, Connors MOM for me, Deegan superb, Murphy excellent too and Ruddock good cameo too.

Ronan Kelleher is looking more and more like the real deal.

Tomane solid again and Luke in good form.

Porter is scary.

We are in rude health. Yes I know Connacht poor but Leinster ticking along nicely.

Favourite moment: Fardy stealing candy from a baby....

Any sign of Connors? His injury looked a bit worrying to me

If Will Connors has a tackle count less than 25+ I'll be amazed. Our entire back-row was excellent, both in defence and support.

Excellent pacy aggressive performance with generally good offloading and support. This will not be an easy Squad to get into next week.

The conventional wisdom is that Forwards decide who win matches, Backs decide by how much. Not tonight.

And that was without Furlong and James Ryan. It's not inconceivable that none of the back rowers are even in the 23 next week.

Really very impressed by cohesion of entire back-row. Whilst I raved about Will Connors tackle count, Josh Murphy and Max Deegan combined with him to provide the sort of dominant shield that any team would be happy with. Not too many turnovers but high quality (generally) low tackling which continually drove back the Connacht attack metre by metre.

No easy selection for Leo et al.

Awesome performance. A very well coached team.

That first half was some of the best rugby we've played in a while.

Murphy, RK, Ross Byrne and Tomane particularly impressive.

Thought Keenan and JOB looked comfortable. Keenan in particular looks ready to play at a higher level.

Connors and Deegan both very good. The formers' tackle technique is brilliant.

Nope, to paraphrase a racist, he just hasn't earned it yet baby.

He can be RoK until RK retires, then there can be a ceremonial handing over of the initialisation - perhaps on the pitch at half time or something. :lol:
