So at the end of last season Leinster decide to auction off the player's jersey to raise money for girl's rugby, my and my friend bid for John McWeeney's jersey and got it for 30 euro (as opposed to the retail price of 80 euro). The jerseys were supposed to be presented to us by the players after Friday's pre-season friendly against Northampton. (McWeeney got released at the end of last season by the by). Anyway I get this email today, can't figure out for the life of me what it actually means for me.

I think I might just try to get the new jersey off them for 30 euro. Well there&#39;s the rant, don&#39;t know if anyone cares but that&#39;s your problem.

Nothing would surprise me anymore with Leinster rugby after some of the shambolic goings on this year.

i can&#39;t imagine the likes of shane jennings would be too interested in signing their Leinster jerseys considering they told the branch to more or less go f*** themselves at the end of last season.
