Leinster's Silverware
Austin and Darragh of Leinster Rugby came to our school laden down with the silverware that Leinster won in the 2013 season. They received a warm and loud welcome!! Darragh gave the children a little backround information on each cup or competition. The 'British and Irish Cup' is pentagonal in shape, a side for each of the participating countries (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales) and a side representing the competition. Eight matches were won in order to win this cup. This cup is competed for by players who are improving their rugby and hope to play rugby at an even higher level. The 'Amlin Challenge Cup' was won by Leinster after winning 9 matches. Of the three trophies on display we were told the 'Rabodirect Pro12' trophy was the hardest one to win, with a staggering 24 matches needing to be won in order to lift this particular trophy aloft!!! This presentation was both enjoyable and informative. Many thanks to all involved for organising such a pleasant event.
