The Leinster 'A' team go into this evening's final British & Irish Cup match in Donnybrook against Rotherham Titans knowing that a place in the last eight is assured having won five from five so far in Pool 1.

However, Hugh Hogan's side will be keen to finish out the pool stages unbeaten as they look towards cementing that home quarter-final.

It's been impressive stuff so far from a side captained by Peadar Timmins with away victories over Rotherham, Ealing and Moseley adding to two home wins.

The closest game of the campaign came in that opening day away win against tonight's opponents when a late Ross Byrne drop-goal steered them home 12-9 at Clifton Lane.

They have since racked up 185 points in the subsequent four games with some breathtaking rugby from the youngsters.

However, they will be on their guard this evening for a Rotherham side looking to make up for the heartbreak of that first weekend loss.

The game kicks off at 7.30 in Donnybrook and tickets can be bought at the gate or online at leinsterrugby.ie
