Fans Turn Out For Leinster’s Longford Visit

Fans Turn Out For Leinster’s Longford Visit

Hundreds of supporters packed into Longford RFC on Friday to watch the Leinster squad being put through their paces at their second open training session of the 2011/12 season.

After the rigorous training session in the wonderful Longford RFC facilities, which were only recently re-opened, the Leinster players happily mingled with supporters – signing autographs and posing for photographs.

Late last month over 2,000 supporters packed into Tallaght Stadium to watch Joe Schmidt’s men prepare for the start of the Bank of Ireland Series pre-season matches.
