Sean O’Brien has been named the Bank of Ireland Player of the Month for December and the Tullow man was presented with the award by Fergus Hickey (Business Adviser, Bank of Ireland) in Donnybrook …

Sean received the most December votes from Leinster supporters who referenced his inspirational form against Scarlets at the beginning of the month, his try making performance in the ‘Fever in the Aviva’ against French side Clermont and the interprovincial derby with Ulster when he scored two tries, his first efforts in the Magners League this season.

Commenting on his award, Sean O’Brien reflected on the month’s games and on own his development in the Leinster Academy before turning his attention to Saturday’s game against Saracens.
