    Always a tough call. You'd imagine you go for Fardy despite Lowe being one the best finishers in the competition. Fardy is a huer of a man. In the way POM is a huer.

      Would be a risk to go without the big bollox Fardy for an away game but it's doable. Think he's less dispensable than Lowe though.

        Lowe beats Fardy in to the team for me, but only due to what alternatives to each are. Without Fardy, you can put out the incumbent Irish second row pairing. There's a big drop off to whoever comes on to the bench, but Ryan and Toner are both very capable of doing 80 mins in a tight game if need be.

        Whenever Lowe takes the field I just feel he's good for 10 points, in scoring trys and/or making breaks that lead to others scoring. Against the stubborn defenses that Saracens and Racing offer at times, his contribution to Leinster's attack is very important and can't be replaced like for like.

          Yeah, I think Lowe is harder to replace than Fardy. Fardy arguably doesn’t make the first XV when Ryan and Toner are fit. Lowe would be one of the first names on the team sheet.

              I’d still expect you will have way too much for them, and they’ve plenty of work ahead.

                Henshaw, Toner and McGrath back. SOB on the bench. Great if SOB can survive a few games, his last 2 comebacks didn't last more than a couple of games.

                        James Ryan is a complete savage. The work rate, the tackles, and the ground he makes!

                          Game could do with a wasps try just to make it a game imo, Leinster looking good away while wasps just putting up a fight but not much else
                          Its life, if your not doing it wrong your not doing it right.

                            It is Toulouse's interest to win but not score 4 tries to avoid Leinster and play Racing

                                Nick Mullins on bt said Lowe can’t play today cause park and fardy are in the 23 and only 2 allowed ??

                                does that rule apply to Munster ? We have often played more than two.

                                Is is this why cloete was left out of squad does this only apply in Europe ?
