Toulouse are getting nothing from Dickson in this game. They are going to struggle to get anything..,
There is never any points for 2nd place...

Leinster are irrepressible and are worthy of their lead. It was already an uphill task for Toulouse and now even tougher after the yellow card. Difficult to see any change in the second half, but there’s always a chance.

The speed the game is being played at is amazing. Second half scrum dominance by Toulouse could be critical.

I’m not sure how long I can watch this. Sexton moaning already and the Leinster love in in the commentary box is nauseating !
The "Leinster love" is, I think, entirely justified. They are merely praising what is, to this moment an exceptional performance.

Toulouse need to turn that scrum dominance into points quickly - once their first choice front row come off that advantage will disappear, as it did against Munster. Meanwhile, the Leinster breakdown speed is mind-boggling.

Unfortunately their heaviest forward is off the park. If Toulouse score next this could get interesting

I get that they’re good, I just think the commentary team focus too much on Leinster. And BoD’s “touloose” is hilarious!

Agreed - I’ve no natural affinity to Leinster (most of my Irish friends are Munster fans who loathe the ‘fancy Dan Dubliners’) - but objectively have to admire the level they are currently at.

Well Leinster at least knew they were in a game last week!
Hopefully when a Tigers play in the semis of The Gallagher Premiership we will remember the Leinster game to get off to a fast start!

It's amazing and sums up how bad the standard of Reffing is that Dickson is in charge of this game

Leinster have been fantastic to be fair. Toulouse just can't match the intensity.

No idea how Dickson is reffing this, he's well out of his depth.

And is Barnes the 4th official thought I heard his name mentioned. Pearce is doing the all French affair I believe
