You can rely on Barnes to ensure Leinster will win

Another big game ruined by stupid officials when it matters most.

Leinster take the lead for the first time and win on the whistle.

Went to the wire though

Someone should really tell him that in the last 5 minutes of a big game you put your whistle in your pocket and let the players decide it. It's not about you.

Racing played very well, an engrossing game, pity it had to end that way.

Congrats to Leinster and Ireland, the best club side and national side in Europe this year.

How to shoot yourself in the foot by racing

Steal lineout but run towards touchline to ensure Leinster get another crack at it
Then stand off side to allow Leinster a kickable penalty in front of posts
Then go up the other end... wait for clock to go red and miss drop goal losing the game

Wales would have been pround of that

Fatigue set in...but Racing played a smart game plan

That made me laugh more than it should.

Pretty certain that last gasp DG was blocked wide, the original trajectory was taking it through the posts to the left of shot.

Agreed, that lost the game.

Did you watch the 2012 6N match in Dublin, between Ireland and Wales?

That last minute penalty in the Grand Slam match of 2009?

Not Leinster, but Irish rugby, I appreciate.

No moaning but that loss of key players 15, 2 x 10s and Capt and hub 9 denuded attack and control.

Racing are a good team and getting better ... they're in the mix for Top14 Champs too.
