For what may be the first time since the new Interprovincial Series commenced there was no Merrion player on the Leinster Lightning side that took on the North West Warriors in the first match of the season. The dispersing of Leinster players to teams north and south means that one has to go much further to find the club links. In this case one finds Stephen Doheny popping up for the North West.
In the end a comfortable win for Leinster with Doheny making 28 opening the innings for their opponents. For full details and video coverage go to https://live.nvplay.com/icc/#mb4947387-1da9-4d6b-a719-c5ece460ab87
