Leinster looking for another win!

  Martin Moore has played 12 games for Leinster this season.

I’m back in action after a good holiday – saw the results over Christmas- did all the 4 provinces get a win and a loss? All even then. Amazing how good Munster are against Leinster – they’d be top of the league if they played like that every week – and amazing how abject Leinster are against Munster. News from Munster is the departure of JJ Hanrahan – they weren’t playing him much, he’s a big loss, but he’s young and he’ll be back. If Munster get their forward play right, the fly half doesn’t have much to do anyway.

Connacht kick things off on Friday at Edinburgh – good times when they’re favourites and should
win this handily.

Leinster hope to make it two in a row against Cardiff, who have a decent team and should be doing much better than they are. Marty Moore and Ben Te'o are back in the picture, whilst Jack McGraw is on the bold step for a few weeks. Leinster have been poor away in general, but I think they might do this.

Munster won’t struggle against Zebre, nor Ulster against Treviso. Munster have pretty lengthy injury list though – Earls and Cronin are close to returning, but Kilcoyne, Copeland, Smith and Ryan are still a way away.

Enjoy the rugby!
