    Yeah should be a full strength Leinster team provided there's a clean bill of health after the Munster match.
     
  4. 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.

    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
