Ireland hooker Sean Cronin is to join Leinster in the summer after three years at Connacht.

Cronin, 24, who has seven international caps, started his career with his home province of Munster before moving to Connacht in 2008.

Meanwhile, Leinster have announced that their Heineken Cup quarter-final against Leicester will be played at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

The match is to be played on the weekend of 8-10 April.

"We remain committed to our home in the RDS but, given the manner in which our supporter base has grown, we believe we have a duty to cater for as large an audience as possible for special one-off matches like this," said chief executive Mick Dawson.
