Leinster ‘A’ compete in the British & Irish Cup against teams from the RFU Championship and ‘A’ sides from the four Welsh regions, playing their home games at Donnybrook Stadium.

The team is primarily made up of some of the best up-and-coming players in the Leinster Academy and Sub-Academy, as well as senior squad players.

Leinster ‘A’ won back-to-back British & Irish Cup titles in 2013, defeating Newcastle Falcons 18-17 in the final at Kingston Park,  and 2014, defeating Leeds Carnegie (now Yorkshire Carnegie) in the final at Donnybrook by 44-17.

Noel McNamara is the head coach of Leinster ‘A’ for the 2017/18 season.
