    Edinburgh will be looking to make it 4 wins on the trot as they host Leinster this Saturday. They've yet to name their squad for this match.

    Leinster have recalled 3 more Lions to their squad with Rob Kearney, Luke Fitzgerald and Jamie Heaslip all coming back. Girvan Dempsey is also back having missed the trip to Swansea.

    Leinster Squad:
    Forwards: Leo Cullen, John Fogarty, Cian Healy, Jamie Heaslip, Nathan Hines, Bernard Jackman, Shane Jennings, Ronan McCormack, Kevin McLaughlin, Sean O'Brien, Mike Ross, Dominic Ryan, Devin Toner, Stan Wright
    Backs: Shaun Berne, Gordon D'Arcy, Girvan Dempsey, Luke Fitzgerald, Shane Horgan, Chris Keane, Rob Kearney, Simon Keogh, Fergus McFadden, Isa Nacewa, Eoin Reddan, Jonathan Sexton

  3. Good. Perhaps someone might finally beat Edinburgh.
     
  4. We didn't play well against Ulster, but still ground out the win which shows character that we've lacked in previous seasons and we'll need it plenty to beat Leinster.

    I think we will win, we've got good momentum and are in the habbit of winning games now and we do have a great record against them especially at home. I'd hope to see Blair start, he had a cracking game when he came on. I think it'll be a close game, only 5 points in it.

    Not seen the teams yet but I am looking forward to this one. I think this will be Edinburghs toughest game yet this season in the league.
     
  6. Think business gets serious now all lions are almost back but is BOD still out because of laser surgery on eyes or what story?

    Think it will be cracking game with potential to be game of weekend.

    Also intersting to see who lines out where for Leinster as we might get hint of who will be playing where as Shaun Berne been impressive so far will he be able to muscle a startin H'Cup spot

    Edinburgh are only two wins away from equalling Leinster's record unbeaten streak of 11, so Leinster will have a little bit extra to play for.

    We definitely can win, but you can never write Leinster off, especially with the way the lineout and scrum have been functioning lately.

    Gerry Thornley is generally on the ball and has a good idea what's going on. This is the second time in a couple of weeks that he's talked up Dominic Ryan so I wouldn't be surprised if he makes the 22.

    Where does this kid play and probably right to give BOD an extra week as he always seems to be in rucks and tackles as he 1 of best in business at tackling and getting hands on ball,
    But we'll test neck in RDS :p

    Backrow-Forward. It's good to see Leinster actually producing more forwards than Munster for once. Think we'll have a far better pack in 2 or 3 years.


    Here fishy fishy...

    And we producing the backs :p

    But we producing good young pack but it just harder to break in to the team it just a question of picking their time carefully :)

    I'm claiming Luke Fitzgerald for Douglas, Co. Cork. it's where he learnt his Irish!

    Then I claim John Hayes as he's Irish and what with Leinster being Ireland's most populated province, it's most likely he's from here. Check mate.
