Leinster are facing Montpellier away in the European Champions Cup this afternoon, looking to make it two wins from two in their campaign.
The Irish province are eager to emulate yesterday’s performance of their southern counterparts, as Munster blew Glasgow Warriors away in a special occasion at Thomond Park.
Last night, Ulster paid tribute to the late Anthony Foley with a rousing rendition of The Fields Of Athenry, and today Leinster have done their bit by taking to the field in red jerseys, with number eight printed on the back.
There was a minute’s applause for Foley, as everybody in the stadium remembered a true legend of the game.
It was a moving tribute, and one which was well received by the rugby community as a whole.
Nice touch with the red tshirt @leinsterrugby. Really appreciated by everyone down south

It is a tough test for this Leinster side to go to the south of France and find a positive result. Montpellier are one of the strongest sides on the continent at present, but were shocked by Northampton last week. Therefore, they will be looking to set the record straight by beating the Irish side.
