Revolutionary new T-shirts for Leinster's travelling fans

HERE'S hoping Clermont Auvergne develop triskaidekaphobia before Sunday.

But the fear of the number 13 will be nothing compared to the fear of BOD.

The Official Leinster Supporters Club (OLSC) has brought out a new range of T-shirts to help fans supports the team in a slightly different way.

The pick of the bunch is a T-shirt of Brian O'Driscoll with the tagline: triskaidekaphobia. For those who aren't well versed in their phobias, that's the fear of the number 13.

Newly retired Shane Hogan has also been immortalised as Argentinean revolutionist Che Guevara, while Jamie Heaslip is pictured carrying his beloved bulldog in place of a rugby ball. Twice a season, the OLSC releases a T-shirt to mark the efforts of our players with an Isa Nacewa shirt currently the big seller.

"We currently have Isa Nacewa T-shirts in stock in a variety of sizes, but don't hang around, they are flying out the door faster than Isa through a gap," the club said.

Around 15,000 fans are expected to make the journey to Bordeaux over the next three days ahead of the Heineken Cup semi-final on Sunday.

The fixture takes place in the Stade Chaban Delmas which has a capacity of 34,000.

Even though the game is in Bordeaux, Leinster still expect a huge number of their supporters to be in the stadium come kick off.

And the supporters club has arranged a march on the grounds in advance of the game.
