Captain Jamie's love Sheena to lead Irish rugby WAGs

SHE'S a hardcore Leinster fan and a well-known face within rugby circles.

So former model and marketing executive Sheena O'Buachalla will have no problem leading the pack of wives and girlfriends supporting the Irish rugby team.

Sheena is the long-term girlfriend of newly appointed Irish rugby captain Jamie Heaslip.

The South Dublin native, who works for radio station Spin FM and part-time as a model, has been with Jamie for two years and lives with him.

The 28-year-old brunette is settling into a life of domestic bliss with the Ireland captain and Leinster star, and his beloved dog Jay-Z.

Sheena has always been a big Leinster fan and is a regular attendee of Leinster-related events.

They were first romantically linked in the summer of 2010.

They had an on/off relationship for over six months before settling down.

According to a friend close to the couple, Kildare native Jamie has "landed on his feet" with Sheena.

"He's a very lucky man," the friend said. "Sheena is out of this world, a gem. She's laid back and a real salt of the earth kind of girl. He's definitely landed on his feet with her -- she's fab."

Jamie was recently appointed captain of the Ireland Team for the Six Nations. He takes over from his Leinster team-mate and pal Brian O'Driscoll.
