Sometimes you have to win dirty and you have to go to a place where you are completely outside of the norm

Another good win last weekend for Leinster and it was very satisfying to get the four points against a tough Ospreys side in very poor conditions. We are aware that the performance in general could have been a lot better in areas but winning our league games in this block during the Six Nations is very important so we are happy.

It was even better to do in the Gnoll, the home of Neath RFC. I wasn't involved in the match-day squad but I remember trips like that back when I was starting out. Nowadays the locations that we play in and the facilities are, by and large, excellent.

A few of the away dressing-rooms could be bigger but that is the oldest trick in the book to make the away team and their prep ahead of the game as awkward as possible.
