Tadhg Furlong continues to make waves on the European rugby scene.

The tight head prop came on as a second-half substitute in Leinster's hard-earned 20-20 draw with Wasps in their crucial game in Coventry on Saturday.

The point assured Leinster of a place in the quarter-finals, and with other results going their way over the weekend they were handed a home clash against Bath, with the game likely to be played in the Aviva Stadium.

All in all it was another pleasing performance from the Campile man, who kept Irish international Mike Ross out of the match-day squad.

Another Wexford player performing with distinction in the All-Ireland League is Bobby Clancy.

The former Wexford Wanderers player continues his progress with Greystones, scoring two tries in their resounding 80-10 win over Richmond on Saturday.
