It is great to see Sheahan starting against Leinster after the troubles he has had over the last few months. He can now begin to forget about those issue and focus on his rugby career and hopefully Frankie will be named in the Ireland RWC squad, which will be announced this coming Sunday morning (Sept. 7th) at 11am.
Commenting on tonights game, Alan Gaffney said he is looking forward to what he expects to be a very open game. Gaffney also said that he knows Garry Ella for some time and is sure that the Leinster coach will embrace a free flow game.
