The day they became men - How the story changes


For years Leinster rugby has been overshadowed by its stronger, more successful country brother.

The rivalry between Leinster and Munster rugby has become mythical.

In 2009, in the month of May, Leinster beat Munster in the semi-final of the Heineken Cup, going on three weeks later, to the surprise of some, to win the cup.

This documentary asks, does Leinster rugby have what it takes to move beyond the pale.

Presented and produced by Ann Marie Power.
