I never really trained with Dan Leavy but I did spend a special season alongside Rocky Elsom. If there is a correlation between their methods, as Johnny Sexton joked on the pitch after Leavy dominated against Saracens, then everyone in Leinster will have adjusted by now.
There is always an exception that proves the rule.
