LISTEN: The Breakdown S02E30 with Sporting Limerick & Three Red Kings

So there you have it, Canterbury will have to add an extra star to Leinster’s kit for the 2018/2019 season and nobody can say they don’t deserve it.

Leo Cullen’s side had to dig deep but when it really mattered in the Championship minutes towards the end of the Bilbao decider, the Irish side held their nerve. Two Nacewa penalties turned a three point deficit into a three point lead that Leinster would not relinquish.
