Leinster win the Heineken Cup - at last!

Leinster 19 Leicester 16

So finally, and deservedly, Leinster have won the Heineken Cup.

Defeating Leicester in a suitably intense and physical contest, Leinster finally proved that they can legitimately shed the “lady boys” tag and grind out a worthy victory against one of the real grinders in the business today.

This isn’t, in historical terms, on a par with the national team winning the Grand Slam, but it is still a great shot in the arm for Irish rugby and Leinster in particular.

Go mbeimid beo ag an am seo aris!
