The second weekend of May, 2018 is less remembered for the loss by Leinster A in the final of the Celtic Cup in Vallis Way, and more for what was going on with their senior team in Northern Spain. But Caelan Doris remembers both events pretty well.

Where is Vallis Way? Home of Ealing Trailfinders of course. Doris was on the bench for Leinster’s second stringers that sodden Saturday when the West Londoners got what, for them, was a landmark win.
