BOD is back off the bold step for Munster v Leinster!

There a couple of big matches this weekend- it’s a critical time to be picking up points as the season draws to a close.

Ulster need to win big against the Dragons, get max points, and hope Glasgow stumble against the Scarlets. They put in a flat performance last week..but now that’s out the way, they can concentrate on the PRO12, where they still have a really good chance of winning. Tommy Bowe starts for Ulster – I was so impressed last weekend when all the lady Quins fans stood up and clapped when he was subbed on – that’s sportsmanship for you! They are missing a few front runners, but the pack looks very mobile. And Marshall and Pienaar is a good attacking 9/10 combination. So they should get the 5 points they need.

Leinster take on Munster, which is a big game for Leinster in the hunt for a good spot in the Pro 12, but not a huge match for Munster. BOD is back off the bold step, and Sexton and Jennings are both in the frame. Try machine Mike Ross, who scored the first try of his professional career last weekend,  is looking to double his tally :) I don’t know what sort of team Munster will pick – they won’t want to lose to Leinster – but they don’t want to pick up any injuries either.  Munster are on a high – I kind of think Leinster may still do it though, should be a great match!

Connacht should put in a good show at Edinburgh - they could up in 8th, which would be a great result for a small team.
