Blues to sink fragile Esher


Esher v Leinster A, Molesey Road, TOMORROW, 3.0

Leinster will have to take the points from Esher if they harbour any notion of making an impact in the British & Irish Cup this season.

The English club are moored at the foot of the English Championship, without a win or losing bonus point from 10 league games.

"We need to play well because we are at home and there should be a good crowd for the visit of Leinster.

"There isn't the same pressure, so I hope the boys will go out and play some rugby and have a real go at Leinster," said their coach, Mike Schmid.

Leinster 'A' coach Colin McEntee couldn't have asked for a more reasonable first test as the 'future stars' and those on their way back to full fitness get a chance to make an impression.

Verdict: Leinster
