Munster and Leinster may be rivals on the field, but there is a mutual respect off it.

The PRO12 game between the sides earlier this season, was the last game Anthony Foley was involved in, before he died in Paris. On Saturday evening, ahead of the game between the two sides in Limerick, Leinster's players warmed up in red t-shirts in memory of the former Munster captain.

It is the second time the team have performed the tribute, but it's no less meaningful the second time around. A week after Foley's passing, Leinster wore red t-shirts before their Champions Cup game with Montpellier in France.

The gesture was understandably well received by the Thomond faithful, as the club continue to try and come to terms with the tragedy.
