Borders vs Leinster



this should be a good game

is any1 here going?

also, does any1 know if BO'D is playing? :bana:
Yeah should be a full strength Leinster team provided there's a clean bill of health after the Munster match.
Should be an easy bonus point win for Leinster, the Borders are gash.
well we've picked up 2 winning bps in the last 2 weekends against better opposition so Borders should be much of the same, as long as we're not complacent.
Leinster make 3 changes from the side which beat Munster, Reggie Corrigan, Rob Kearney and Luke Fitzgerald all come into the starting XV. Horgan and Dempsey are both out injured.

Ben MacDougall has recovered from a bruised hip and will make his return to action alongside Garry Law who starts at inside centre. New signing Ed Kalman makes his first start since joining the Reivers over the summer and Bruce Douglas moves to the bench.

Border: 15 Calum MacRae, 14 Simon Danielli, 13 Ben MacDougall, 12 Garry Law, 11 Nick De Luca, 10 Steve Jones, 9 Chris Cusiter ©, 8 Kelly Brown, 7 Scott Gray, 6 Ross Beattie, 5 Craig Hamilton, 4 Opeta Palepoi, 3 Ed Kalman, 2 Ross Ford, 1 Gavin Kerr.
Replacements: 16 Steve Scott, 17 Bruce Douglas, 18 Scott Newlands, 19 John Dalziel, 20 Brendan McKerchar, 21 Andy Miller, 22 Gregor Townsend.

come on borders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

what an amazing game

i can't beleive borders won
shouldnt have won, leinster coming off that ggreat form against munster, what shame, theyll rebound next week though, leinster is just to talented to be a cellar dweller..
no, leinster played against munster very good.. sure they could have shaped up their discipline a tad, but with the weather and conditions they played in, im suprised they didnt beatdown border reivers
it's a match we should have won but given the fickle attitude of our squad they just don't seem to get motivated for these games, nearly lost there last year after the win in Toulouse.

Barring that performance though it's not been too bad for Leinster, with everything else going pretty much as expected. Just hope that Munster match was enough preparation for the tougher test we'll get from Gloucester
