Leinster donned red jerseys adorned with the number 8 ahead of their Champions Cup clash with Montpellier today yo pay homage to the late Anthony Foley.
A minute's silence is being observed at every Champions Cup and Challenge Cup game this weekend but Leo Cullen's men went a step further with their jersey tribute.
Many of the Leinster squad would have played under Foley when he was part of Joe Schmidt's Ireland backroom team.
Foley captained Munster in many high octane inter-provincial clashes with Leinster but it's abundantly clear there was a huge level of mutual respect.
Ulster fans showed their class last night by singing a haunting rendition of the 'Fields Of Athenry' moments after the kick-off in their dramatic 19-18 win over the Exeter Chiefs.
Today in Parma, Connacht are wearing red armbands as a mark of respect to Foley.
