"Leinster is the epitome of Irish rugby," explains Bernard Jackman

What does the Leinster team represent in Ireland?

Now it is the symbol of Irish rugby. When I played with Leinster it was against Munster. The competition was fierce, with Munster dominating. He was the European champion in 2006 and 2008, but won the finals or semi-finals every year. We too often lost against him. The Irish public loved the Monstermans very much because our image belonged to a team with a lot of talent, but not enough heart. They don’t have a lot of talent, but a lot of heart. When we won In front of 82,000 people in the 2009 HC Cup semi-final In Croke Park (6-25, Dublin), that began to change. I believe Leinster continues to win 6 games in a row against Munster (interviewed) Before the victory of the Monster, April 24, en Rainbow Cup, 3-27, NDLR)

We only have one pro sport in Ireland, rugby. Football is semi-pro, our best players are in England, the most popular Irish sports (hurling, gallic football, editor’s note) are amateurs. Leinster is an example used to talk about professional sports. Because this is a very sustainable project. Since 2009, in addition to the average season of 2015 or 2016, this is a very consistent team, with over 90% of players selected for Ireland, including the foreigners who come with the project. This gives youngsters the opportunity to earn time to play in Pro14.

“This step-by-step plan has a lot of consistency.”
