Leinster confirmed today that they have reached agreement to make the David Lloyd Health & Fitness in Riverview, Clonskeagh, their new administrative home.

The facilities include a state of the art private gymnasium, which will be tripled in size, offices, meeting rooms and a private entrance for Leinster staff.

The team will remain at Old Belvedere RFC and the newly relaid back pitch in Donnybrook for training sessions.

Leinster Rugby Chief Executive Mick Dawson said: "This is another step aimed at preparing the squad in the best possible way in a professional environment.

"I would also like to thank the executive, office staff, groundstaff and members of Old Belvedere for their wonderful assistance in facilitating Leinster's administrative needs in recent years," he said

Paul Taylor, Director of David Lloyd Riverview, added: "This is a very exciting time for both organisations and I look forward to continuing our ongoing partnership with Leinster Rugby well into the future."
