Jamie Osborne in full flight for Leinster
At just 19-years of age, Jamie Osborne made his debut for Leinster in last weekend's Guinness PRO14 clash against Scarlets in Wales. The former Naas CBS man came on for his first cap early in the second half, and made an instant impression in what was a thoroughly convincing display from Leo Cullen's team.
In this week's Leinster Leader we talk to Jamie on his experience as he knuckles down over the next few weeks and months for, hopefully, more action with, as he says himself "some of the best rugby players in the country."
John Dardis reflects on his life from a sporting perspective. From his days with Old Kilcullen and the amalgamation with the Curragh to form Newbridge RFC; his refereeing days and much more.
