Douglas today tweeted that he was “packed, checked in and ready to fly”, making the long trip to from Australia to Ireland.

Speaking about signing for Leinster, Douglas said last May: “Leinster is a massive club in Europe with a proud tradition and I’m really looking forward to doing my bit to add to the team once my commitments are done here in Australia.”
