AHEAD OF THE PACK
LEINSTER head coach Joe Schmidt was box office in Swords last week where he was the guest speaker at a special business evening in the town Organised by Fingal Dublin Chamber, the corporate networking evening allows business people get together and meet in a social setting, allowing them to put the stresses of the office away for a couple of hours.
The Leinster head coach and Heineken Cup winner Joe Schmidt was quite a draw at the McAllister Volkswagen Showrooms in Airside where guests were treated to an inspirational talk from the rugby legend.
Originally from New Zealand, Schmidt has been at the helm since the 2010 season and has continued to lead the province to glory over the past couple of years, including successive Heineken Cup victories. He gave the audience an insight into the team's success and how he continues to motivate the star-studded squad despite their success in order to continue their quest for more and more honours.
After his talk, he invited questions from the audience and it turned out to be a fantastic evening by all accounts. Guests also got the chance to preview the all-new 2013 VW Golf, as well as the full range of models.
