Leinster's strength in depth easily snuffs out Dragons' fire
No prizes for guessing beforehand how this was going to work out. Dragons came expecting the silver medal, and got it, and Leinster's agenda was all about sorting a bonus point that would keep the heat on Munster. They trail the form team in the league only on points difference. When they met in this competition in October, Leinster looked the better side by a country mile. The rematch in Thomond Park on St Stephen's Day should, at the very least, see a narrowing of that gap.
