Rugby stars Rob Kearney, Isaac Boss, Shane Jennings and Fionn Carr proved they were blessed with brains as well as brawn yesterday as they graduated from Dublin Business School.

The four MBA graduates posed in their conferral gowns at the 40th Anniversary Dublin Business School Graduations in the RDS in Ballsbridge.

Kearney wrote his thesis on the brand equity of Leinster rugby while Jennings focused on the challenges faced by former Irish professional rugby players when they were faced with transitioning into life after rugby.

Louise Kerins, the daughter of former Rehab chief executive Angela Kerins, also graduated from DBS yesterday afternoon.

RTÉ broadcaster Marty Whelan and his wife Maria were also present and watched their son Tom graduate.
