Absolutely Bizarre Scenes In Dublin As Power Fails During Leinster-Glasgow Match

An absolute¬†cracker of a game was had in Dublin’s RDS Arena as Leinster hosted the Glasgow Warriors in the penultimate round of this season’s PRO12.¬†

Leinster looked to be home and hosed after they had the try-bonus point secured after 60 minutes when Zane Kirchner touched down for the home team.

The score was 28-16 at this stage but Glasgow are one of the most stubborn and dangerous teams in the division.

They did very well to get back into the game and actually went ahead 28-30 with 10 minutes remaining.

Leinster got a penalty back and retook the lead.

So with the game hanging on a knife edge as Leinster led by just one point with just over a minute remaining, something quite unexpected happened.

Nope, it wasn’t a length of the field try from the Warriors but a complete and utter floodlight failure.

These things to tend to happen at live sporting events but in this case, the power was out for some time.

Spectators were concerned that the match was to be abandoned with only 90 seconds or so left on the clock.

Thankfully, after some time, the game was able to resume and Leinster snuffed out the running threat of the Warriors to secure a one-point victory.

The victory means that Leinster have gone through the whole season without losing a game in Dublin – a remarkable achievement for this impressive group of players.
