Chieka is rewarded after leading Leinster to glory

The silverware just keeps on coming for Michael Chieka.

Fresh from Leinster’s stunning victory over Leicester in the Heineken Cup last month, the popular boss of the Dubliners has been named Philips Sports Manager of the Month for May.

Leinster beat the Tigers by 19 points to 16 in front of 66,000 spectators at Murrayfield to clinch Europe’s top club prize for the first time.

It continues the success for Chieka, who helped guide Leinster to Magners League glory last season.
