The Leinster Senior team continued its pre-season preparations with an open training session in Ashbourne RFC today, the first of two open training sessions scheduled for this month.
There was a great turnout and welcome for the team when they arrived in Ashbourne this morning, with plenty watching on as the players were put through their paces ahead of the upcoming pre-season friendlies against Northampton Saints and Ulster.
Supporters also got an opportunity to see new arrival Sean McCarthy for the first time, as well as the new recruits to the Leinster Academy.
After the session the players met supporters, posed for photos and signed autographs. Leinster head coach Matt O’Connor also presented Ashbourne RFC President, Pat Rooney, with a signed Leinster jersey to thank the club and local support for the fantastic welcome.
Leinster’s next open training session will take place in Gorey RFC next Friday, 15 August, at 10.30am.
