RECAP: LEINSTER v CONNACHT
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to the Pro14 Round 10 encounter between Leinster and Connacht at the RDS Arena.
Leinster have won all nine matches they have played in the Pro14 this season, whilst the best start they have ever made to a campaign was by winning all ten games to take the trophy in season 2001/02.
The Leinstermen have lost only once at the RDS Arena in any competition since April 2018: 24-39 to Glasgow Warriors in April 2019.
Leinster’s most recent defeat at home to a fellow Irish province was to Munster at the Aviva Stadium in October 2014.
