In our latest poll we asked you which province impressed you the most during the recent Magners League derby weekend. Many thanks for the 1,519 votes cast.
Having dug deep to earn a 6-6 draw with champions Ulster, Leinster emerged as the side who most impressed you in the provincial derbies.
With a pack that showed plenty of graft and grunt, as typified by openside Keith Gleeson, and a back line that contains a couple of centres double-jobbing as fast-rucking flankers, Leinster certainly caught the eye last weekend in Belfast.
Michael Cheika's men grabbed a 37% share of the vote, topping the poll with 564 IrishRugby.ie users backing their claims. Munster, the only team to actually score a try in the latest provincial match-ups, came home in second (32%), while Ulster on 17% and Connacht, who polled 13%, brought up the rear.
Make sure to check out our latest poll, which will be published after Munster's clash with Cardiff. We want to find which try you rated as the best of the provinces' touch downs in European action this weekend!!
