Rob Kearney’s fearless skills under the high ball and attacking prowess have made him one of the most dangerous fullbacks in world rugby. Kearney made his debut for Leinster in 2005, having already represented the province at U19 and schoolboy levels. He made his Heineken Cup debut later that season.
Kearney’s development continued with a call-up to the full Ireland squad for the 2007 summer tour to Argentina, and having already played for Ireland A in the Churchill Cup, he made his international debut against the Pumas in June.
The Louth man has since won over 75 caps for Ireland, as well as touring twice with the British and Irish Lions. His illustrious career has included a Grand Slam win in 2009 and three Heineken Cup victories with Leinster, as well as being named ERC Player of the Year in 2012. Kearney is currently chairman of Rugby Players Ireland and continues to play a prominent role for Ireland and Leinster to this day.
