What they said

“Josh has been out for a period, he played his first game (last week),” Cullen said in UCD this morning after Leinster went through their captain's run at the Aviva. I thought Dan had some good form in the Six Nations. I think we have good balance there, all those guys have played and have been in good form.” - Leo Cullen on picking Dan Leavy over Josh van der Flier.


"These are the games you want to be involved in and work hard all season to reach - two quality teams going head-to-head in front of nigh on 50,000 people. It should be a great atmosphere and the type of occasion that players will be excited by and thrive on. It's a challenge you run into, not away from. Leinster have half the Irish pack and half the Irish backs, so they are pretty formidable, that's for sure." - Wasps rugby director Dai Young.
