Jamie Heaslip Given Proper Send Off By Supporters At The Aviva

Jamie Heaslip Given Proper Send Off By Supporters At The Aviva

Jamie Heaslip stepped out onto the Aviva pitch ahead of Leinster's Champions Cup quarter-final against Sacarens on Sunday afternoon. It's a walk he made many times during his rugby career.

The difference this time: he was wearing a jacket and shirt instead of the blue of his club. Heaslip was honoured by the Leinster Supporters Club with a presentation before today's game.

The 34-year-old - who recently retired on medical advice - played 229 times for Leinster, winning three European Cups.
