Leinster float like a bee, sting like a butterfly!

Such sad new about Jonah Lomu, only 40, he never had any luck with his health.

Well, after the debacle of last weekend, time for Leinster to get back on track… or is it? I heard both Leo and Jonny do a lot of soul searching during the week. Jonny reckons it was his worst experience in a Leinster jersey, and there was not a lot of happiness coming from everyone really. Well, they’ve had a week to sort it all out, and have a few more players to pick from.  But whether that’s enough time to instil the urgency and aggression that was so sadly absent last weekend, well, we’ll see. It’s quite hard to see us winning this weekend, and if we don’t, that’s us in the competition. Are we going to end up like the French sides? Fielding an academy side because we can’t win anything? Well, faint heart never won fair lady, all we can do is go for it and surprise ourselves!
Ulster have Saracens on Friday, and have Ian Henderson back in the team, what a boost! It’ll be tough, but I’d say they have a good chance at home.
Munster’s match is postponed and Connacht have Brive at home. To say the men from the west have had a nightmare journey home is the understatement of the year, I don’t even know if they are even all back from Russia yet. It’s going to hard to get themselves together for the match.
