Remarkable

The only word coming close to describing Leinster’s second half performance in today’s Heineken Cup Final, which I’m still enjoying. Already being described by the Sky commentators as one of the greatest finals in this competition, the Leinstermen have erased a 16 point half-time deficit which seemed to have swung the tie firmly in favour of the Saints. One of those sporting moments that will live long in the memory. Update: Final Score: Leinster 33- 22 Northampton. Leinster champions for the second time in three years.

    Stumbled upon it earlier whilst nursing a brutal hangover. Good excuse to start drinking again. Perhaps the best game of rugby I’ve watched. Well done Leinster.

    Remarkable was not the word for it.
    Scrum problem much improved in second half — a small disappointment ODriscoll put clear and caughht — age finally catching up with him

    Massive performance from O Brien finally wore the opposition down

    perseus,

    Not sure what you mean. I watched this highlights and thought it was a remarkable performance in the second half by a Leinster team which have been, by a country mile, the best team to watch this season. They deserve the plaudits.
    They arent my team though so whilst acknowledging their excellence, its a result for their fans to enjoy, nothing to do with me.

    That 12 year old Sexton kid is gonna be the Irish no 10 for the next 30 years.

    It was certainly remarkable in the sporting sense but it wasn’t that unexpected. The half time betting market had Leinster at 2/1 and less to win so there was obviously money going on them. It certainly wasn’t Liverpool in Istanbul as some have suggested.

    It was a great game though won by a great team.
