Leinster hand out the Whitewash

Leinster handed Ulster a late christmas present that no one wants and it came in the form of a bucket of Whitewash. Ulster failed to score point in the match and the result sees them firmly rooted to the bottom of the Magners League table.

Adding to Ulster’s woes was that Rory Best was stretchered off in the 55th minute with a possible knee injury.

Leinster rested Brian O’Driscoll for the match as he has an ongoing ankle niggle so he was not risked and judging by the scoreline he was not needed in the least.

At half time Leinster were 9 – 0 up but then in the second half they opened up and unleashed Healy and Heaslip for tries.

Matt Williams is expected to be appointed as the new Ulster coach later this week and if this performance is anything to go by he will have his work cut out for him.
