Malahide and Blackrock boys' Twickenham boost for Blues

As they did last season, some of the future stars of Leinster, from the Malahide U9s and 10s, made their way to Twickenham to cheer on their Heineken Cup heroes against London Irish.

This time the boys were invited to form the guard of honour as the players entered the pitch.

Unfortunately, concerns about the state of the pitch forced the cancellation of the guard of honour, which was also to feature Blackrock College's Mini Rugby boys.

But, in true Leinster fashion, the boys would not take this lying down and marched to the stadium to ensure they took their rightful place at the tunnel entrance, much to the appreciation of some of the Leinster senior players as they ran on.

Blackrock also lent their voice to proceedings in a half-time parade. Well done lads -- a great day was had by all.
