And to answer your question, I believe their issue is with female fans in general. We get one jersey (usually with V neck and longer sleeves, sometimes with a velvet finish) , no T-shirts, jackets, hoodies, no away jersey, no European jersey etc. When they do have a range for women, it’s nothing like the men’s, just general blue with a crest tacked on, and that’s not to mention the pink hoodie.

I thought Leinster were taking a real step forward with women when they advertised the new home and away strip with both the male and female Leinster players but this sounds like they just took two steps back. Sad thing is that we have seen this week with the ladies All Ireland final croke parke getting 51,000 in to watch, an amazing result. I think Leinster marketing are missing a trick in not trying to target women’s fans base more and more for the future

I ended up buying the kids age 12/13 jersey as it was the only one that fitted my size 12/14 body. And it's not an ideal fit, just better than the 'ladies' options

Try being the wrong side of a size 16 and having the rake thin shop assistant give you one of those smart, nasty, sickly sweet smiles while saying 'maybe you should try on one of the gents jerseys - it might be a better fit'

The men’s ones this season have no room for boobs.

First time in about 12 years I won’t be buying a jersey.

The new kit has been out for a few weeks now. Any comments on the quality issues many expressed (stuck on stars going bye-bye in the wash etc)?

In a massive about-face about the appearance of the jerseys, I was gifted the home version and I think it looks rather splendid in the flesh.

Bigger sizes are really required in both the male & female ranges, as the sizes are smaller that normal in a lot of cases..

Only going to "size 12" in ladies at crazy and denying Leinster a source of income.

Plenty of room for my boobs in the European jersey - which is a class jersey. The nice girl in Lifestyle told me they are expecting a full range of ladies sizes in, but she could have just made that up.

I have to admit I really like my home kit jersey (well could be to do with the 4 stars!). Did see couple of guys wearing the European cup jersey at the game and it look d nice too in real life.
