Leinster Team to Face Glasgow



Glasgow’s management team huddle round a small table. Glasgow are targeting another win to keep their fight for a playoff spot alive…

– Who are we playing this week then?
– Leinster.
– Bugger. They won the Heineken Cup. BOD, Kearney, Heaslip. OMG, Nathan Hines will be coming to sledge us too and pick a fight with Al Kellock. That Leinster?
– In theory.
– Oh well, I never liked the playoff system anyway. We were top of the league for ages. Moral victory!
– But wait Sean, here’s the team:

15: Ian Madigan, 14: Simon Keogh, 13: Eoin O’Malley, 12: Fergus McFadden, 11: Michael Keating, 10: Paul O’Donohoe, 9: Chris Keane, 1: Ronan McCormack, 2: Bernard Jackman CAPTAIN, 3: Mike Ross, 4: Trevor Hogan, 5: Ciaran Ruddock, 6: Rhys Ruddock, 7: Paul Ryan, 8: Stephen Keogh

– But the bench will be loaded with stars, right?

16: Jason Harris-Wright, 17: Jack McGrath, 18: Mark Flanagan, 19: Dominic Ryan, 20: David Moore, 21: Kyle Tonetti / Brendan Macken, 22: Andrew Conway


Does a team featuring almost no-one we’ve ever heard of give Glasgow a chance of a useful win, and maybe a bonus point with a final match against the out-of-sorts Scarlets to follow? Will Leinster be kind and play this team against Edinburgh on the last weekend of the regular season? Tune in next week!

  1. Of course now that Connacht beat Leinster, this team could well change as the Dubliners find themselves under pressure for the right to a home playoff…
