Record crowd for Leinster V Bath Rugby pool game expected

FORGET THE 12 pubs of Christmas lark, there is a far more enticing soiree at the Aviva Stadium this Saturday. Leinster entertain Bath at 6pm and with ticket sales already tipping over the 43,000 mark a record attendance for a European pool game in Ireland is expected.

This weekend last year 44,873 showed up as Leinster over-ran Clermont Auvergne. This figure would have been greater only for the minus 12 degree cold snap restricted many supporters who had purchased tickets from travelling to Dublin.



  1. I think Bath may be able to carry out the upset of the competition so far by turning over Leinster (current champions) in front of over 40,000 of their fanatical fans in the Aviva stadium where they have not yet been beaten and where they have beaten teams of the calibre of Leicester, Toulouse, Munster and Clermont. Our defence will however need to be very solid because these guys can attack from all angles.

  2. As much as I love Bath I fear we'll get destroyed on Saturday. Losing to Leinster at home and with all the tries they butchered is a bad sign for the away fixture in the Aviva...
