Kids take over show at RDS

LEINSTER's Pro12 mission against Connacht might not be child's play but everything else at the RDS on Saturday evening looks set to be, with the province handing over the keys to the kids.

The club's latest innovation will see the 'kids take over' with young supporters from all over the province getting the opportunity to get involved in running the show off the pitch.

Young boys and girls will man the PA, deliver the match ball and interview the squad after the game, while a cub version of Leo the Lion will replace the usual mascot. A family of four can attend the game for €65 as Leinster look to go into the domestic break with back-to-back wins.

Marcus Horan and Doug Howlett are back in Munster's squad for their game against the Ospreys at Thomond Park on Saturday, while Ulster will recall their big guns for their clash with Treviso at Ravenhill on Friday.

PEAMOUNT UNITED face Mission Impossible today when they resume their UEFA Women's Champions League adventure in Paris.

The Peas go into the second leg of their clash with Paris Saint-Germain at the Stade Charlety (4pm Irish time, live on Eurosport) looking to overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg at Tallaght Stadium last week.

Captain Louise Quinn f insisted they have not given up on the tie by any stretch of the imagination.

"We are just going to take it on. We know we have nothing to lose and we are going to really push forward to get the goals. We should have scored a few goals last week so hopefully we are going to get them this time.
