Leinster appear for Clermont Auverne Battle

RDS 20,000 people Leinster ride their luck in a fantastic battle with a hard big Clermont team from the Auverne. Final score 29-28. A tale of two kickers – Jonathan Sexton kicks seven from eight penalties and misses one drop at goal. Brock James misses five penalties and three attempts at drop goals. Morgan Parra also missed one shot at goal. The match was intense and tense and the noise in the RDS was ear splitting. I could hardly hear the ref link. Munster were brilliant in disposing of Northampton 33 – 19 on Saturday in Thomond Park and we have to salute Connacht beating Bourgoin 23-20 in Galway. Where are the Galway people that only 4,000 showed up to cheer them on.
