The Leinster and Ireland flanker (28) has rekindled his romance with student Denise Smyth, whom he was quietly dating last year.

It looked like things were heating up between the pair, who met through friends late last summer, so much so that they even jetted to Dubai for a romantic holiday together before the festive season.

However, they went their separate ways and split for more than three months before reconciling their romance in April.

It looks like things are back on track though as Sean is even set to bring the 21-year-old DIT student to tomorrow's Leinster Ball at the DoubleTree by Hilton, introducing her to the WAG social scene at the black tie event.

"Sean is really private about these things," an insider said. "He's chuffed with the way things are going with Denise, but still doesn't like to put his relationships out there."

The 'Tullow Tank' is famously private when it comes to divulging details of his personal life and has managed to keep most of his romances under wraps over the last two years.

His last high profile romance was with Donegal Rose Maria McCole, whom he split with in 2013 after two years together.
