We did a spot of analysis on the continually-evolving Leinster defence under Matt O’Connor. This one is a long read!

The fixture list

  • The French Open: Men’s singles – Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer, Andy Murray. Women’s Singles – Ana Ivanovic, Patra Kvitova, Simona Halep.
  • Leinster Junior Football Championship: Wexford v Cavan, Gorey, 7.30pm.
  • World Cup warm-up friendlies: Mexico v Israel, Cameroon v Paraguay.
