European Champions Cup Final preview 

After two consecutive final defeats to La Rochelle, Leinster have another opportunity to win a fifth European Champions Cup trophy. Having won all four pool games, comfortably defeated Leicester and then gained revenge over La Rochelle, the Irish province showed a few signs of nerves as they survived a late fightback from Northampton to reach a third consecutive final. 

Leinster will be boosted by the fact that Hugo Keenan, James Ryan and Will Connors are all available after returning from injury last week against Ulster, which means head coach Leo Cullen should be able to select his strongest side in the final. 

The Irish side will certainly need to be at their best if they hope to deny Toulouse a sixth title. Le Stade were exceptional throughout their knock-out run as they eased past Racing 92 and Exeter before withstanding a spirited second-half fightback to beat Harlequins and reach the final for the first time in three years. 

Toulouse certainly have plenty of talent in their side and will hope the likes of influential scrum-half Antoine Dupont, towering forward Emmanuel Meafou and the hugely skilful fly-half Romain Ntamack can prove to be difference makers. 


Leinster: Keenan; Larmour, Henshaw, Osborne, Lowe; R Byrne, Gibson-Park; Porter, Sheehan, Furlong, McCarthy, Jenkins, Baird, Connors, Doris (capt).

Replacements: Kelleher, Healy, Ala’alatoa, Ryan, Conan, McGrath, Frawley, Van der Flier.

Toulouse: Kinghorn; Mallia, Costes, Ahki, Lebel; Ntamack, Dupont (capt); Baille, Mauvaka, Aldegheri, Flament, Meafou, Willis, Cros, Roumat.

Replacements: Marchand, Neti, Merkler, Arnold, Brennan, Graou, Chocobares, Ramos.
