'They're a bloody good team' - Healy expecting Exeter to arrive in Dublin with a point to prove after last week's dog fight

We get insight from Cian Healy and Johne Murphy on this week’s episode of Close Calls.

Updated Dec 15th 2017, 2:26 PM

LEINSTER PROP CIAN Healy is expecting another tough game from Exeter this weekend, after winning last week’s “dog fight” with a score of 18-8.

Speaking during the week, Healy said that Leinster couldn’t afford to adopt a “false sense of security” due to the tightness of last week’s game in Sandy Park.


The clip is from the latest episode of Close Calls, where we were joined by Johne Murphy to preview the provinces’ chances of repeating the success of last weekend.

The former Munster and Leicester man expects a tight battle between two of his former employers but is predicting a much easier night for Ulster against Harlequins tonight.

Finally, while he believes Exeter will up their game from last weekend, he still expects Leinster to complete a clean sweep for the provinces in the Champions Cup.
