Leinster were beaten by rivals Ulster in a gritty 10-20 for the first time in six meetings in one of the first big shocks of the United Rugby Championship. With their perfect record at an end, they host another province hoping to do the same in Connacht who look to be finally finding their feet after a poor start to the season. Connacht beat Ulster in the match before last and made it back-to-back home wins with a huge 46-18 dismissal of in-form Ospreys last Friday to move into play-off contention. Hosts Leinster will be eager to bounce back from Ulster’s outmanoeuvring last weekend but a buoyant Connacht side look like a tougher prospect than many seem to be giving them credit. Taking Leinster to cover -10 here looks a suitably cautious move as we wait to see their response.
