Another highly-skilled and versatile operator in the Munster and Ireland packs, DENIS LEAMY is an explosive presence at the base of the scrum.
With his talent recognised at Rockwell and with Ireland's underage sides, the Tipperary native had long been earmarked for the top and he made his Munster debut at 19.
Leamy has played in all three back row positions for Ireland as well as filling in at centre for Munster. Was ever-present at number 8 in Ireland's 2006 and 2007 Triple Crown-winning campaigns and scored Munster's only try in their 2008 Heineken Cup final win over Toulouse.
Has had to overcome shoulder and knee injuries this season but returned for Munster in recent months and got on the pitch for all of Ireland's Grand Slam games, including one start against Scotland.
