Leinster marked the death of Anthony Foley by wearing red ahead of the Champions Cup game against Montpellier.

Playing for the first time since Foley's passing, Leinster took to the field all in red, with Foley's number 8 on the back. All players had 'AF' on their chests too.

In emotional scenes, the Altrad Stadium crowd gave a minute's applause to the the Killaloe native, who was buried on Friday afternoon.

Leinster's gesture follows on from Ulster's on Saturday night. The fans in Belfast sang 'The Fields of Athenry' for the first minute of their Champions Cup game with Exeter Chiefs.
