    Have a feeling it will be a case of Ulster team destroyed by injuries battling heroically and loosing late by a few points. Nowhere near the handicap on Paddy Power

    I'd say Ulster will be within a score for most of it without ever really looking like causing an upset before Leinster pull away a bit at the end.

    Henderson's fitness is crucial, I think there's too much of a gap between the respective tight fives without him.

    Sexton rumoured to be crocked, Rob K and Jack McGrath rumoured to be fit but cut from 23, James Lowe again to enjoy a holiday season and miss out. Leavy kept on bench.

    I still fancy Leinster but well Ulster hang in there and it could be a fun last 10

    Strengthened in ways and weakened in others.
    Interestingly I believe Ross Byrne is a huge positive for Leinster.

    Not the best team Leinster have ever named to be honest. I still think it'll be enough but I'm not as confident as I was.

    This game is superb, awful shame with this injury. Sounds very unpleasant.

    Get well soon Leavy.

    Over 40 phases to kill 5 minutes, absolutely ridiculous.
