Video: Heineken Cup fever
With just over a week to go, Heineken Cup fever is really setting in. Yesterday we brought you some of the best photos from the official launch at the Aviva and we now have the video to go with it.

Yesterday’s launch was a little different to the usual photo-calls, so it was refreshing to see new ideas come to the fore. Whether Heineken had banked on one of the ideas being Rob Penney dressing in three-quarter length pants is not known.
We get to hear from the four captains on their hopes for the coming season, while Penney and Joe Schmidt let us in on their thoughts on Europe’s premier competition.
The Heineken team are also on hand to remind us how it is such a “huge, dynamic” competition should we ever forget!
The days may be getting darker, shorter and colder, but the Heineken Cup is one of the great things about the winter months. Less than 228 hours to go, but who's counting?
