Leinster Set up Aviva Stadium Showdown

Despite losing to Clermont in France yesterday, Leinter Rugby remain top of Pool 2 in the Heineken Cup qualifying stage.

The 2009 champions came out of France with a losing bonus point that ups the ante for the return clash at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday next.

The increased profile of the clash will be a welcome boost for hotels near the Aviva stadium in the current depressed hotel market. The game is expected to be very well attended.

The losing bonus point from the 20-13 defeat to Clermont Auvergne is the margin by which Leinster now top the group.
