Sportsfile and Leinster Rugby have launched 'Double Delight', a picture diary looking back on the historic 2017/'18 double-winning season for the boys in blue.

The 144-page book retraces each game of the season through the Sportsfile team's lenses from the first round Guinness PRO14 away trip in Rodney Parade to the Aviva Stadium and the final moments of an epic 32-game long season.

The Sportsfile team, led by Ramsey Cardy and Brendan Moran, were with Leinster Rugby every step of the way and the work is a brilliant reminder of an historic first double-winning season.

Leinster head coach Leo Cullen launched 'Double Delight' at Bank of Ireland, Grand Canal Square, and was joined by other members of the Leinster backroom team as well as some of the 55 players that contributed over a long season.

Cullen said: "'Double Delight' is a fantastic memento of the season and will be a brilliant reminder of what was achieved last season by the 55 players and the staff.

"The Sportsfile team have done a brilliant job and we are thrilled that thanks to the support of Bank of Ireland, Laya Healthcare and Life Style Sports, that all profits will go to our two charity partners, MS Ireland and the Down Syndrome Centre."

'Double Delight' (€24.95) is on sale from Sportsfile.com and book stores nationwide with all profits going to Leinster Rugby's charity partners.
