RuggaMatrix International 069 – From Leinster with Love

Who can stop Leinster?

Munster failed last week in the big Magners League local derby at Thomond Park.

This weekend though the champions of Europe face a quarterfinal challenge worthy of respect in Clermont Auvergne at the RDS.

So who better than Shaun Berne to take us through what the Leinster mob are up to at this late stage of the season.

Berne has been a critical figure off the bench for Leinster and his experience will count as the European competition comes to an end.

Aside from all that he’s one funny guy.

Super 14 is also in our sights too as that competition turns the halfway mark.


The loop, runaround or wraparound is one of the those old moves which is often disguised in the modern game.

It’s changed as rugby has evolved but we discuss what it offers as a basic move or a more complex version.

It’s also a joy to construct or deconstruct if you’re looking from the defensive point of view.
