The relentless mechanics of the game at the foot of Jonathan Sexon (6), who was offered six penalties, or eighteen points, each time in front of the perches rochelaises, will not have resisted the furia of the Maritimes. Replaced (63rd) by Ross Byrne, who will be the author of the last Irish shortly after coming into play (65th). The generous and effective omnipresence of Conan (7), a real catalyst for Leinster’s combativeness, and the enormous radius of action of Van der Flier (7), nearly made the difference in huge late-game defensive streaks. Dan Sheehan (7) was colossal in presence and leadership. He had not planned to enter the game so early and had to replace early Ronan Kelleher (15th minute) after a shoulder problem. In the fray, Gibson Park brought solutions, put the French under pressure (7). Just like Lowe (6). Less well rated, O’Brien (5) and Keenan (5), who missed his duel against Rhule (10th minute), had more difficulties in defense.
