Leinster Rugby have this morning introduced their coaching team for the season ahead in the Tallaght Stadium, the venue for their upcoming Bank of Ireland pre-season friendly against Ulster on Saturday, 30th August.
Leinster have announced the signing of rugby league player Ben Te'o from the South Sydney Rabbitohs. The 27-year-old has played rugby union in the past and will provide options for Matt O'Connor in the centre.
Speaking during Connacht's training trip to Ballinrobe RFC, captain John Muldoon said: "It's great to see the jerseys and the people coming out to support us today. Long may it continue because we're not a Galway team, we're a Connacht team and that's what we want to push and that's why we come out on these days out."
Young hooker David Heffernan, who extended his current deal with Connacht in April, enjoyed a trip back to his native Mayo as Pat Lam's men held an open training session at Ballinrobe RFC earlier this week.
Prop James Cronin, who won his first Ireland cap in the second Test win over Argentina last month, told the Munster Rugby website about his Argentinian experience and the return to pre-season training with Munster.
