Comment from Head Coach, Lyn Jones:

"Leinster are one of the top European sides and they have again shown up

strongly in this seasons Heineken Cup. They had an uncharacteristic

performance in last weeks semi final against Munster but they will now

be concentrating fully on the Celtic League and looking to put things right

against us this weekend"

"We will be concentrating on our own game and looking to build on the

success of our victory over the Scarlets. It was a committed, disciplined

and passionate performance against what was a formidable Scarlets outfit and

although we were delighted with the result we are now fully focussed on the

remaining fixtures"
