200 Up for Jamie Heaslip : I've Started So I'll Finish

Major hat-tip to @MiriamCol for producing these stats on the Babbling Brook forum!

"my first game as a pro with @leinsterrugby in 2005 fitting it was in @naasrfc the club I first started playing rugby in...200 caps has caught me off guard!"


Jamie Heaslip made his full debut for Leinster as a sub on March 6, 2005 against the Ospreys at Donnybrook (Victor Costello started at No8).  That day he played 11 minutes; two weeks later he came on for 19 against Connacht.

To mark his 200th appearance for Leinster tonight at Kingspan Stadium (not to mention his short-listing as European Player of the Year), @MiriamCol has crunched the numbers to show how Jamie went on to become one of the game's most durable stars.

Has to be Wolverine blood.
