Plenty of challenges ahead tonight for Leinster


Leinster have a similar team lined up for the trip to Glasgow that drew against the Ospreys. That makes me slightly nervous,but maybe they’ll play the full 90 this week, and not in fits and starts. They’ll need to because Glasgow are good! Leinster at least have more firepower on their bench with Cian Healy and Rob Kearney, and I’m hoping to see quite a bit of Dominic Ryan. I think we’ll struggle to be honest, and I’m going with a Glasgow win. Prove me wrong Leinster!

Leinster: 15 Ian Madigan, 14 Dave Kearney, 13 Brendan Macken, 12 Gordon D'Arcy, 11 Darragh Fanning, 10 Jimmy Gopperth, 9 Isaac Boss, 8 Jordi Murphy, 7 Shane Jennings (c), 6 Kevin McLaughlin, 5 Tom Denton, 4 Mike McCarthy, 3 Mike Ross, 2 Richardt Strauss, 1 Jack McGrath.
Replacements: 16 Aaron Dundon, 17 Cian Healy, 18 Martin Moore, 19 Devin Toner, 20 Dominic Ryan, 21 Eoin Reddan, 22 Noel Reid, 23 Rob Kearney.

Munster face a tricky trip to Treviso. Good to see Earls and Downey back in the team, and they have CJ and JJ on the bench if needed. I’d say they’ll win, but not very easily. And Ulster have a chance to FINALLY get their show on the road against Connacht, although Connacht won’t be keen to surrender anything. I’m expecting Ulster to win though.
