Speaking ahead of the game, Head Coach Allen Clarke said: “Leinster have quality throughout their squad even with the boys away at the world cup. They have a programme that has been the heartbeat of Irish rugby for a number of years and is the envy of most European teams. Their record shows how good a side they are and I’m sure everybody outside our group doesn’t give us a chance against them on Friday night.

“Again, if you step back from the game against Ulster, taking into account the number of boys we were missing and compounding that with the number of injuries we picked up, I thought the resolve of our group was excellent. You can build on that, if you don’t have that character within the group, you don’t have a chance. “We’ve got fight, we’ve got character and we trust that we’ll be in a good position on Friday night to be the best version of ourselves.”
