The involvement of key players with the international squad has left Leinster struggling at this early part of the season. We always knew it was going to be difficult for us this season because of the demands on our international players. The biggest problem we have had is that we have only had our top players for six days, said Williams. We've had to make 10 changes almost every week and that hasn't allowed us to develop any continuity. It is very hard to develop when you are losing.We couldn't really hope to win without nine players. There was plenty of courage and commitment from a young side, but I was disappointed with some of the decision making.
Leinster are fortunate in that their three remaining game are against Neewport and Borders who have yet to win a game and Bridgend who are just above them in the table. The sides at the business end of the Pool all must play each other so it would be foolish to write off this Leinster side just yet.
If the Williams squad jar is half-empty then his former assistant sees his being half-full. Alan Gaffney's
