Cullen relishing fans return


Leinster head coach Leo Cullen says he and the players are looking forward to welcoming fans back to the RDS for their Rainbow Cup clash with Dragons on Friday night (LIVE one eir sport 1 from 8pm).

Leinster chances of reaching the Rainbow Cup final were extinguished with the 15-12 defeat to Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun last Friday, but Cullen insists there is still plenty to play for in their final game of the season.

“It’s our last home game and we are hoping to have 1,200 people at the RDS, the first time we have had a crowd for a long, long time,” he said.

“The guys will be keen to put on a good show and they will also be keen to give the players who are leaving a good send-off.

“There is plenty of motivation for us regardless of whether there is anything tangible to play for. 

"There is always something at stake, plenty for our guys to play for.”
