Devin Toner became the 20th Official Leinster Supporters Club (OLSC) legend last Saturday evening when the Meath man's legends t-shirt was revealed.

Leinster stalwart Devin has to date amassed 226 caps over 13 seasons playing as a professional in the blue of his native province.

'Big Dev' won his first cap for Leinster in 2006, at the age of 19.

In last season's double-winning campaign he featured in 20 games, starting 19 and playing every minute of knock-out rugby in both competitions.

After the crucial victory over Toulouse, at a packed Laighin Out Bar, OLSC President Aisling O'Connor presented Devin with his t-shirt and chaired a lively Q&A.

Devin enjoyed a special day as his wife Mary and family were present to see him honoured.

Devin's son Max even got to sport his own custom 'Real Dev' t-shirt with 'My Dad's an OLSC Legend' written across the back.

The OLSC, on behalf of all supporters, were delighted to honour and thank Devin for his outstanding service.
