Leinster stars have been talking about just how important the Blue jersey is to them.

Ben Te'o never got to keep the jersey he wore on his competitive debut for the province as it was cut off him in Accident and Emergency after Leinster's win over Edinburgh in the RDS but he seems to think it wasn't thrown out.

"The first game I played, I broke my arm, so I took that jersey to hospital to the emergency room. She cut it open up the seam and up the back, so I think one of the surgeons or one of the emergency doctors took it home and got it re-stitched by his wife and it's framed up in someone's house ," he said.

"It's number 13, so they're probably going to say it's O'Driscoll's jersey but it's mine."

Two Leinster players are also accused of wearing their jerseys too tight. Find out who they are below:
