    Leinster should come into this one very fresh having had the last 2 weekends off, that said they would have liked for Jennings and Sexton to get some game time before these final rounds of action.

    Bar Luke Fitzgerald Leinster pretty much have a full deck to pick from. BP win is a must for Leinster if they're to have a chance of getting through as a runner-up should things go tits up at Twickenham next Saturday.

    Brive have nothing to play for so whether they'll travel with a full squad remains to be seen, given the icy conditions they're bound to be facing I doubt they'll risk it, not even a chance of getting into the Challenge Cup so hardly worth the risk.

    Jennings ahad of O'Brien is the only (slight) surprise for Leinster. No Goode, Flutey or Palisson for the Top 14 side.

    "Though they have some quality players missing, Brive still have the quality of England's Jamie Noon in the backline"... LARK!

    If Brive hadn't made so many errors once they're up to 3/4s, they'd be up by a couple of tries easily by now. Leinster haven't turned up at all.

    Against the run of play, Andrew Small is very quick to award Leinster a penalty try. Sexton converts.

    The commentators are rightly bigging up Poppam, He's really been excellent.

    Lovely break by Sexton, should've ended in a try

    Lol, Cristiano D'Arcy has signed for Leinster. Diving t*at.

    Leinster showing up now. Rusty for the first 20.

    D'Arcy should be banned for life.

    You wouldn't see that in Connacht.

    Edit: Keith Mathews is far better than him.

    Oh Gordon you silly engine.

    feicarsinn Guest

    Jennings you twat.
  14. Sean O'Brien should be a starter.

    Leinster still playing like a very rusty team who have suffered from weather.
    Sexton really playing as if injury hasn't effected him.

    Try no.3 for Leinster. D'arcy under the posts, 22-5.

    Kudos to them if they can get the try-bonus when they've actually not been very good today.

    Even more amazing is Brive have played ever so well but haven't converted any but one opportunity.

    "Brian O'Driscoll buzzes with Godliness as usual...", love these commentators.

    The last try by Brive and by Leinster were both quality,
    Other than that, not a great match

    Horgan's final pass should be framed and hung in a gallery. Beeeyoootiful.
