@98FMdotcom I love @LeinsterRugby because….. #jackinthepack
With Leinster being 10 points clear of the Rabo Direct Pro 12 and making their way into ANOTHER european semi final are all Leinster Fans just getting to comfrotable with winning?
Leinster lost there impressive 20 game streak without a loss, to the Ospreys 3 weeks ago and some asked the question “will this be a bad spell for Leinster?” but one week later Leinster they go down to the fortress of Thomond park to face their biggest rivals and win comfortably without really getting into fourth gear, this is then followed up by a packed house at the Aviva Stadium where Leinster proved why they are one of the best teams in europe.
All this is wonderful but what i am loving about Leinster rugby in recent times, the packed houses!
On a horrible Winters night in he RDS you still wont go under 10,000 people and here is why:
With all the usual amenities like bars and food stalls there is also skills and drills for the Kids as well as even a quick game of tip rugby before you go in to watch the Leinster team and of course you can even get some freebees or maybe you face painted by a 98FM Thunder! But people now a days just love Leinster Rugby!
A new T-Shirt has just taken to the shops with “I Love LR” on it and i want to find out why!
So tweeps with this being such a massive few weeks for the province i want you to tell me 1 reason why you love Leinster Rugby?
The best answers will be read out on my slot this Friday night live on 98FM

Best dressed and Blind Date as Leinster does ladies night!
This Friday Leinster entertain the Scarlets at the RDS in the Rabo Direct Pro 12.
This game is also this years edition of the famous ”Ladies Night”.
Ladies will be pampered before the game with beauty treatments and drinks as they listen to live music!
On the night I will be reporting live from the ground throughout the evening starting with a QandA session with Irish captain Brian O’Driscoll prior to kick off.
While after the game, of what will hopefully be a Leinster victory, I will be presenting Leinster Rugby does “Blind Date”!
Last year I had the guilty pleasure of hosting the inaugural Leinster version of the very popular ITV show, Yes folks, i was christened “Cilla JACK” before i became “Jack in the Pack”!
As 4 Leinster fans competed for a date with our lovely lady Anna (see picture).
The competition was a phenomenal success with the big crowd that gathered getting huge entertainment from Anna’s “rugby” style questions and there was even dates 3 and 4 for the winning couple!
So if your single and up for a laugh let me know if you want to take part!
Also ladies don’t forget to dress up and dress up in blue as there is a €500 voucher to be won!
As per usual Big Red and the 98fm Thunders will be with me in the RDS on Friday night, so dont forget to say hi!
So if you have any questions for Brian O’Driscoll or if you want to get involved in “Blind Date” I can be contacted/followed on Twitter @jackhanratty (yes i have just become addicted!)
See you all on Friday for what is sure to be a great night!
Christmas feast at The RDS!
Leinster continued their fine form with 2 great wins over the festive period against Ulster on St Stephens Day and Connacht on New Years Day. A full house on the 26th cheered Leinster on to a bonus point win, while I caught up with Leinster “Blue Crew” where young fans get to test their skills at every home game. The ‘Inside Line’ this week, a feature where we put the Leinster players on the back foot, featured rising star Brendan Macken. Brendan spilled all the inside gossip on his team mates including what happened on their Christmas trip to Carlow.
Stay tuned for more!
