by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-22

Like the senior team with the Pro12, Leinster's second team also have a chance to successfully defend the trophy they won last year.

It's a European knock-out weekend and for the first time since May 2010, Leinster's senior team have nothing to do with themselves. Though they went out at the pool stages last season, they at least had the consolation of the Amlin Cup.

Match Preview: Newcastle Falcons vs Leinster 'A'

However not only are they away from home for the third game running, their final is directly clashing with the Amlin Cup Final. What's more, because of that clash, Sky aren't showing any coverage of it whatsoever, after they screened the last three finals live. So if Leinster do manage a win, there will be precious few witnesses to it.
