Leinster put in an impressive display yesterday evening to account for the Ospreys in Dublin, and now Leo Cullen’s side look like they have found their groove. The Irish province won 31-19, with out-half Jonathan Sexton putting in a sterling performance.
Sexton has had his struggles with injury, and failed to find a run of form and fitness last season. However, there is hope that should the 31 year-old avoid a spell on the sidelines, he will be the front-runner for the Lions number 10 jersey.
Last night featured an interesting sub-plot, as Dan Biggar and Sexton faced off. It was undoubtedly the Irishman who came out on top.

He was at the heart of everything good that Leinster managed, and he was a big loss when sin-binned.
