Leinster were held to a 24-24 in France last night against Castres.

The result means Leinster are all but guaranteed a home quarter final, with Connacht the only team that can catch them. The western province well need a 62 point margin, try bonus-point win over Toulouse to do so.

Leinster had many people scratching their heads when substitute Jamison Gibson-Park kicked the ball out last night, despite his side only drawing, unaware this was the case. The problem is, Leinster have now practically ended all hope of a home semi-final.

Munster are another team that are already qualified for the quarter final stages, but need a win to guarantee a home quarter final. The southern province can even potentially put themselves into the home semi-final standings, depending on results.

Today’s game at Thomond Park see’s the return of Ronan O’Gara, a man that knows a thing or two about drawing with Castres in France, with only seconds on the clock. Perhaps Leinster should haver taken a leaf from his book last night? Here’s how it’s done by the legend himself.
