Despite claiming an impressive 37-19 win over the Ospreys on Friday, departing Leinster head coach Joe Schmidt, believes his team need to raise their game for this weekend’s PRO12 semi-final against Glasgow.
The blues had already secured a place in the play-offs before Friday’s victory but needed to get a result against the Welsh outfit to guarantee themselves home advantage.
A hat-trick of tries from Munster-bound Andrew Conway, as well as a five pointer from Cian Healy, helped the province to a convincing win.
Having ended the regular season in second place, behind Ulster, Leinster will host third-place Glasgow while the Scarlets will take on Mark Anscombe’s men in the other semi-final.
Pleased as he is with the home semi-final, Schmidt still saw issues in last weekend’s performance which need addressing ahead of the Warriors’ visit
“We're really happy to get the home semi-final,” the newly appointed Ireland head coach said.
“That was our target. We knew the Ospreys, who still had a lot to play for, would chase the win and maybe a couple of tries in the second half.
"We had to start really well in the second half and thankfully enough Andrew Conway got his third try.
“We missed a couple of tackles that we should have made and that's always a disappointment - there's things we need to work on.”
Leinster have already recorded a league double over Glasgow this season, beating them 0-6 in Scotstoun, before sealing a 22-17 win at the RDS in a gripping top of the table clash.
But Schmidt believes Gregor Townsend’s charges have come into impressive form of late and will carry that momentum into Friday’s semi-final.
"We've got massive respect for Glasgow, they've probably been the form team of the second half of the season.
“We were lucky to beat them here in March (22-17), it was nip and tuck that night. There was nothing in it really."
