VIDEO: Joe Schmidt interview after Leinster's 59-22 win

The Kiwi coach talked to reporters about the form of Ian Madigan and Richardt Strauss, as well as keeping up with the Pro12 leaders.

LEINSTER COACH JOE SCHMIDT witnessed his side outclass Cardiff Blues 59-22 at the RDS and spoke, in his typically frank and engaging manner, about keeping up momentum, conceding sloppy tries and the positive showings from Ian Madigan and Richardt Strauss in recent weeks.

He noted that his side’s five point haul, following the nine-try victory, was much needed after their Pro12 rivals all enjoyed winning weekends.
