Hugo Keenan got his first taste of putting silver on the table with Leinster jersey on Saturday. Already, he wants more.

The 24-year-old winger played the full 80 minutes of the 27-5 Guinness Pro14 final defeat of Ulster, celebrating with pizza and beers in the bowels of the Aviva Stadium. 

It wasn't long before the squad's attention turned to a contest long marked down on the diary: Saracens in the quarter-final of the Heineken Champions Cup. There's unfinished business to attend to.

"We want to right the wrongs of last year," said Keenan referencing Sarries' victory in the European Cup decider at St James' Park in May 2019.

"There is a bit of revenge there. Everyone's been looking forward to this game for a while now. It's a big one.

"Unfortunately, I didn't get to go over to [the final last year]. The academy guys, three of us, we went to Bective Rugby Club to watch the game there.

"That game came down to the wire, didn't it? It was so evenly matched and it was a tough one to watch. I'd say it was a tough one to play in as well.

"Obviously, there will be a few people still hurting from that so we've a few wrongs to right."

It's been something of a breakthrough campaign for Keenan, who's been on the fringes of the first team since 2018.

Lifting a trophy in the colours of Leinster was a special, albeit surreal, experience.

"It was a bit strange," he added. "Unfortunately we couldn't have fans there, couldn't have family or friends, everyone in the stadium. It was still special for me. It was my first trophy, the first one I was involved in.

"We chilled in the changing room and had a pizza and a beer together. That was nice. We soaked it up that night. It [was celebrated] a bit different than you normally would but you've got to make the most of everything these days.

"Each game has been different. We've been building through each one and I think the performances have been getting better and better as we've been going on."

One trophy down, another one to go - that's the mantra in the Leinster camp, where the appetite for glory is never satisfied.  

"People are delighted with the win at the weekend, securing the Pro14, but getting that fifth star on our jersey, that's the main thing for us this season," said Keenan. 

"It's such a big week for us. The Heineken Cup is the one you want."
