Leinster Enjoy Open Session By The Sea

Leinster Enjoy Open Session By The Sea

A huge crowd of over 3,000 supporters of all ages descended on the seaside Wicklow town of Greystones on Friday afternoon to watch the Leinster squad being put through their paces at Dr. Hickey Park ahead of the 2012/13 season.

The visit to Greystones RFC marked the 75th anniversary of the club and the huge gathering, which included 140 players from the Volkswagen Leinster Rugby Summer Camp, were treated to a session which included skills, strength, fitness and conditioning drills and exercises.

Afterwards the Leinster squad posed for photographs and signed autographs around the sun-kissed ground.

Sincere thanks to all those who came along to support the players and coaches.
