Leinster A set for Vallis Way return

Ealing Trailfinders fans will be in for an early Christmas treat when Leinster A travel to Vallis Way for the fourth round of the British and Irish Cup on 19 December.

Two seasons ago the Irish province edged a 14-13 win in W13 and there is sure to be an equally thrilling match this season. A week prior to Leinster A’s visit Ealing Trailfinders fans will have the chance to enjoy a weekend in Dublin and one Ireland’s great rugby venues, Donnybrook. 

“We have a very tough group with Moseley, Rotherham and Leinster A, ” Director of Coaching Ben Ward said. “It will be great to go back to Donnybrook on their new pitch against one of the favourites for the competition. 

“Having Leinster A visit Vallis Way on the Saturday before Christmas will be a fantastic occasion and one we can all look forward to.”

Ward’s side have been drawn in Pool 1, which along with Leinster A features Greene King IPA Championship rivals Moseley and Rotherham Titans. 

Moseley is the first port of call on the weekend of 13, 14, 15 November, while a week later on 21 November Rotherham Titans travel south to Vallis Way. 

After the home and away fixtures against Leinster A prior to the festive period, the tournament resumes on 15, 16, 17 January when Ealing Trailfinders head to South Yorkshire to take on Rotherham Titans. 

The group stage concludes a week later against Moseley on 23 January.

The five group winners, plus the three best runners-up qualify for the quarter-finals, with the final due to take place on the weekend of 9 April.  

Ealing Trailfinders will confirm the exact dates for the away matches in due course.
