There was the unmistakable air of the rugby season properly kicking into gear this afternoon. As the autumnal air takes on an added crisp, there was an extra little crunch in the tackles between Leinster and Munster at the Aviva this afternoon.
Leinster were the better side - winning comfortably, on a scoreline of 25-14 - with Peter O'Mahony saying post-game that Munster will need to improve drastically ahead of their Champions Cup clash with Racing next weekend. Ireland's biggest derby, followed by the Champions Cup leading into the November internationals: after an oddly quiet few months, rugby is set to creep its way out to dominate the back pages soon enough.
Intrepid sleuths Sky Sports decided to help this process along, as one of their cameramen tried to pick up some #content of his own in the aftermath of the game. With the post-game formalities complete, Leinster veered from the Guard of Honour for a post-game huddle, led by Jamie Heaslip.
A Sky cameraman decided to nudge his way in to catch Heaslip's words on mic, before being told where to go. Watch below:
We're not exactly sure who kicked the camera away, but fair play to them for following their captain's words.
We did a batch of player ratings from the game, too, which can be found right here.
Update: We still don't know who kicked the camera away, but oddly, we now know the identity of the cameraman: he's Jamie Roberts' brother. The Welsh centre picked up the story at some stage, and tweeted it out:
Hey @jamieheaslip my brother wants to know who kicked him out the huddle earlier!? He's distraught 😂@davidroberts22 https://t.co/lyL8wgERiM
