“Once again all the major European cross-border trophies reside in Celtic hands – Ireland taking the RBS 6 Nations trophy, Cardiff Blues the EDF Energy Cup and Leinster the Heineken Cup.

“With the majority of the British & Irish Lions touring party playing their rugby for Magners League teams, it is proving to be another ground breaking season for Celtic Rugby.

“A final mention must go to the Leinster supporters who made the game at Murrayfield such a colourful and vibrant occasion on Saturday.”
