Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), one of two charity partners for Leinster Rugby this season, are launching their CRY Christmas Jumper Selfie campaign at the Wasps game on Sunday afternoon and during the week Leinster players Darragh Fanning, Devin Toner, James Tracy, Noel Reid and Ben Te'o were on hand to get their own selfies taken.

  • Go To

CRY are asking supporters both young and old to take a Christmas jumper selfie for CRY by using the #CRYXMASJUMPER hashtag and nominating three more friends to do the same.

So how do you donate? Once you've posted your picture and nominated your mates, it's simple. Just text JUMPER to 50300 to donate €4 to the Leinster Rugby charity partner, CRY.

Even if you don't have a Christmas jumper your donation would be hugely appreciated by CRY to help with the brilliant work they do in tackling Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.
