They're more used to lining out in the blue jersey, but Leinster’s rugby players have appeared in the guises of Batman, Spiderman and Captain America for Children’s Hospice Week.

Shane Jennings, Jack McGrath and Isaac Boss were among those in fancy dress at the Laura Lynn hospice where they met some younger heroes.

“We have seen the impact they have on the lives of these inspirational children and their families.

“We would urge all Leinster fans to get behind the ‘Be A Hero’ campaign and to do what they can to support the initiative,” Boss said.
