AS THE RUGBY season prepares to go up of few levels of intensity over the coming weekends, Rob Kearney is ready to go. 

The Leinster veteran will win his 200th cap for the province against provincial rivals Munster at the Aviva tomorrow evening, before facing into another Heineken Champions Cup week. 

The defending champions host Wasps at the RDS on this day week. 

Kearney sat down with The42‘s Murray Kinsella earlier this week for the one-on-one feature interview in the inaugural Heineken Rugby Weekly to reflect on his game and how it’s evolved over the course of a career in which he’s amassed two centuries of appearances. 

We discussed his impressive run times, the invisible workload of a fullback, the importance of aerial play, distribution and much more.
