Jack Conan was a lot braver than most of his team-mates when Leinster visited a haunted house

What's scarier, facing down a rampaging Louis Picamoles or entering a haunted house? It turns out that neither prospect fazes Leinster star Jack Conan.

The 25-year-old played at number eight opposite the French behemoth last Saturday as Leinster started their Champions Cup campaign with a bonus point win over Montpellier, and was more than a match for the Les Bleus star.

The Leinster players have been enjoying some time off this week after their big win, with a host of Leo Cullen's men visiting the Nightmare Realm haunted house just beside where the team play in the RDS.

As you can see from these photos, it was a pretty terrifying experience for the majority of the squad, but fair play to Jack Conan for having the composure to crack this beaming smile amidst all the horror unfolding around him.
