    Leinster v Glasgow</div>

    Glasgow haven't had the ideal buildup for this one with the arrest of Dan Parks on a drink driving charge but it should work out better for them with Jackson being guaranteed the start now.

    Leinster were as poor as they've been all season in the first half last weekend and while they improved in the second half they'll be looking to find some semblance of form ahead of the Munster match.

    Would expect Leinster to get the win but probably by a score.

    hopefully Kearney's illness won't see him miss out next weekend.

    Here's hoping Dr Phil is getting some bad habits out of his system before next Sunday, poor conversion and not the finest chip and chase there.

    no issue over the Fa'atau try, good to see Jones being consistent to his word and putting Stortoni in the bin after his initial warning, more often than not he forgets he's made the warning.

    Great tackle from the Glasgow 13, name escapes me on D'Arcy to prevent the try.

    Yet again Whitaker is a pedantic old fart getting pinged for delaying the feed in a great attacking position for Leinster.

    again shocked to see Jones being consistent, both sides have had players pinged for swinging arms and was half expecting both of them to walk but he was consistent with the Wright one by not binning him.

    wasted 10 minutes there for Leinster making no headway with Glasgow down to 10, could have had a couple of tries though had they been more clinical

    there's the retarded James Jones at his finest, missing a forward pass of about 2 metres, only giving the scrum to Leinster for the side going forward with the ball.

    big call from Jones not going to the tmo there, be interesting to see the replay, thought he was on the wrong side to make the call.

    Horgan levels the scores with Leinster's second try and Contepomi adds the extras to take the lead.

    good to see Jones getting pole-axed.

    Leinster well and truly out of sight now, positives for next week have been the performance of the backrow, thought Heaslip had a better game than Elsom but it's a marginal call.

    O'Driscoll has looked very sharp in the second half, Cullen steadied the ship when he came on, but still plenty to work on, Whitaker, bah I'm sick to my teeth whinging about him, Contepomi a bit hit and miss, looked more comfortable at centre once Sexton came on.

    I wouldn't be too bothered if Sexton started next week at 10 with Contepomi at 12, then it'd be 1 from 3 for the final wing spot, can't see it happening, has worked well throughout the season when Sexton has come on at 50 minutes so that's probably what we'll see on Saturday.

    Saw the last quarter. Leinster had good rhythm, but their defence of the restarts was amateur. That's all Munster need - take their own kick off, batter at the 22 for five minutes, score. Rinse and repeat.

    Conte is taking the **** at this stage. Get off the park and heal people, like a grown up!

    all part of the masterplan, lull Munster into a false sense of security and then bang he'll finally deliver big at Croker :p
