The All Whites’ campaign began with a 47-12 defeat to Montferrand and they will be looking to get back on track against Leinster.

Coach John Connolly has dubbed the game a must-win affair if his side are to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition.

‘This is a tough pool and I imagine we will have to win it to reach the quarter-finals. That means victory on Saturday is absolutely vital.’

‘Leinster is just as tough a match as Montferrand,’ said Connolly.

‘We will be facing half the Irish team when Leinster play us at St Helen’s this time.’
