Heaslip eyes PRO12 silverware

Back row relishing Connacht clash

Jamie Heaslip believes that winning the Guinness PRO12 final this afternoon would be a big addition to the legacy that the current crop of Leinster players want to leave at the RDS club.

However, he knows that Leo Cullen's charges face a massive challenge from an in-form Connacht side in the Murrayfield decider but is determined to to bring home the trophy.

“Bloody hell, it’s exciting!" he said. "This has been a long season. We started training at the end of June last year and to be plating for something after missing out on different competitions and experiencing that void, it’s terribly exciting.

"It’s going to be hugely challenging. They’re riding a massive crest, a wave of momentum they have form the way they’ve been playing, which has been a really good brand of rugby. We’re going out have our work cut out for us.

“If anything they’ve been the pace setters all season in terms of the league. They really made it challenging for teams. They’ve a great attacking prowess and defensively are astute as well. We know we have a tough challenge ahead of us.

"Turning around and seeing the pitch, I’ve so many good memories from this pitch," he added, referring to Leinster's 2009 Heineken Cup triumph over Leicester in which he scored a try and Ireland's 40-10 victory over Scotland to clinch the RBS Six Nations championship last year.

"This would be massive in terms of what we’re trying to do in Leinster, how we’re trying to evolve the culture, the group the club.

"It would add to the legacy players want to leave at the club.“
