Ospreys v Leinster


An Tarbh

Leinster travel to Swansea on the back of a heavy defeat at the hands of Toulouse while the Ospreys won't be in the best spirits following their failure to come away with anything from Kingsholm on Friday.

So will the Magners League focus the attention of 2 of the stronger sides in the league or will both still be wallowing in a sense of self-pity.

Either way matches between these 2 sides don't tend to be boring affairs, regardless of the strength in depth of either side.

This time round Leinster will be looking to field as strong a side as possible despite the injuries to Whitaker, Dempsey and D'Arcy, whereas the Ospreys will be hit by call ups to the Welsh side for their clash with the Springboks the following day.

So can Leinster go second in the table or will the Ospreys once again prove their strength in depth as they have done many times previous. All-in-all it promises to be an intriguing clash, although Setanta Ireland will be showing Connacht Ulster instead so patience may well have to prove to be a virtue on Friday night.
Didn't see this one but again apparently the ref wasn't up to much for both sides it would seem.

Anyway I'm still happy with the result, little dissappointing that they got the bonus point but hey it's not all bad. I know the Ospreys were missing several key players because of the Welsh test but the Leinster side was hardly at full strength either so decent result and good to get a favour from Glasgow as well.
