Blues in heaven as French raiders are sent packing

IT was blue skies all the way for Leinster fans at the weekend as Joe Schmidt got his Heineken Cup career off to a bang.

The Blues were simply sensational at the RDS as they brushed past the French league table toppers in front of a sellout crowd.

A crowd of 18,000 Leinster fans descended on Dublin 4 to support the boys -- who kicked off their Heineken Cup campaign with a crushing 38-22 triumph over Racing Metro.

Next up for Leinster is a Wembley stadium clash with Saracens.

Fans knew we were in for an impressive performance just minutes in, the only other feeling in the stands besides cheer and praise being a healthy tension.

But as always, it was a massive family day out with children joining in their parents' favourite pastime.
