Leinster in London

This was a great trip if not the greatest match. The boys in blue did enough to ensure a home draw against Clermont Auvergne in the quarter final of the European Heineken Cup. We had 7,500 supporters over from Ireland. The atmosphere was good even if we were in such a big stadium, [47,000] altogether I am told, in a 76,000 seater.

D’Arcy was magnificent as was Isa Nacewa.

Alastair and Anne Marie enjoyed themselves and we met Brian Dornan, Eoin and his girlfriend [name gone sorry] as well as Greg.

We march on !!!
