100 not out: Gordon D’Arcy’s career in numbers to mark a century of European caps

D’Arcy has been wearing Leinster blue since just after his Leaving Cert.

WHEN GORDON D’ARCY made his debut for Leinster:

  • France had just won the World Cup.
  • Rush Hour had just been released.
  • Robbie Williams’ Millennium was number one in the Irish charts.
  • Jenny McCarthy was chosen by FHM as the world’s sexiest woman.

So, D’Arcy has been around for a good while. This weekend will see the centre make his 100th European appearance for Leinster when he takes the field against Castres, and to highlight his longevity here are some key numbers from his provincial career.
