'Nice Touch' Pic of the Day

The Clermont Auvergne fans put together a big banner – as Gaeilge – to welcome the travelling Leinster support to Bordeaux.

AS GESTURES GO, this was a pretty nice one.

This is a banner displayed on the streets of Bordeaux yesterday by fans of ASM Clermont Auvergne, welcoming Leinster fans who had made the impossible-by-direct-air-link trek to the south of France for yesterday’s Heineken Cup semi-final.

Albeit with a slightly iffy translation, the banner reads, ‘Welcome to our Irish friends’ – a very nice touch for the Leinster fans in town, who convened near the stadium to walk to the Stade Chaban-Delmas to watch Leinster’s horrendously tense 19-15 win.

Pic reproduced with thanks from the Official Leinster Supporters’ Club’s Facebook page.
