Fergus McFadden was announced as the 21st OLSC (Official Leinster Supporters Club) Legend after the Benetton Rugby game.

McFadden - 'Ferg' to Leinster supporters - has amassed 429 points for the province and won his 177th cap after taking part in a hard-fought draw with Benetton.

Ferg has thrilled Leinster fans over 12 seasons playing with skill, guile and a level of physical commitment that personifies the man.

OLSC president Aisling O'Connor presented Ferg with his T-shirt with a packed Laighin Out Bar watching on.

With his wife and family present, Ferg enjoyed a special night. Ferg's son Freddie, not present on the night due to it being past his bedtime, got his own custom 'Ferg' T-shirt with 'My Dad's an OLSC Legend' written across the back.

Ferg T-shirts will be available to mail order and will also be available at the OLSC shop at the back of the Laighin Out Bar before and after tomorrow's game against the Glasgow Warriors.

All T-shirt sale proceeds go to Leinster Rugby charity partners, the Down Syndrome Centre and MS Ireland and already more than €6,000 has been raised.
