Deadspin Slights Leinster Ahead Of The Heineken Cup Final

Deadspin Slights Leinster Ahead Of The Heineken Cup Final
By Donny Mahoney Updated

Look, we don't expect our sports blogging chums across the pond to get it right all of the time, and Lord knows we've pilfered a lifetime's worth of content from Deadspin in 15 months of blogging, but still, this is sort of relevant. Deadspin posted about the royal rumble at Saturday's Leicester - Northampton match this afternoon. For some odd reason, writer Jack Dickey felt impelled to add some context to the match result, including this pretty contentious paragraph. The European Cup is a consolation prize compared to the attritional warfare of the English Premiership? Don't think so. An innocent mistake, probably, but one worth pointing out.

[Edit - We were contacted by Deadspin, who informed us we got the byline wrong. It was Jack Dickey, not Brian Hickey. Always confusing our hickey's and our dickey's]
