A bird's eye view from the terrace: Ask not what your province can do for you...

by Yvonne Kelly, 2010-12-15

After the visit of Clermont to the RDS earlier this year those who travelled to Stade Marcel Michelin last weekend knew they were in for an experience, but I doubt any Leinster fan expected just how intense that atmosphere would be. We have all admired those areas in away grounds from where the noise and atmosphere seems to emanate - the supporters stand in Toulouse, the promenade in Ulster and the shed in Gloucester to name but a few. But in rugby grounds the world over I have never seen anything quite like what we witnessed last Sunday.

Match Report: ASM Clermont Auvergne vs Leinster Rugby

by Patrick Fennelly, 2010-12-13

Rarely have injuries come in such bunches and at such inopportune moments, but it seems that Leinster are always left without a full strength squad following the Autumn Internationals.

Without a win on the road this season and without talisman Brian O'Driscoll, the majority of Leinster fans travelled to Wembley more in hope than in expectation. The London venue became the 91st to hold a Heineken Cup game and with an impressive attendance of 45,892, you can understand why Saracens moved the match to the home of English soccer. The main talking point pre-match however was the red posts, which seemed to blend in with the seats behind.

Match Preview: Saracens vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-08-23

Leinster and Saracens will meet tomorrow for the first time ever in a competitive match. Saracens have moved the match to Wembley stadium, as they've done for many of their Premiership fixtures in the last two seasons. So, it will be a unique opportunity for Leinster players to play at the home of English football and with a travelling support of 5,000 or so expected there should be no shortage of noise to inspire them.
