Leinster and La Rochelle face off in a mouthwatering European Champions Cup final rematch with scores to settle and pride to be restored.


Irish behemoths Leinster are the second most successful side in the competition's history with four titles to their name between 2009 and 2018.

However, they have lost their last two finals in this grand tournament, in 2019 and last year against... La Rochelle.

The French outfit will be steeled by their maiden victory in the competition last year and will relish the opportunity to head into the match as defending champions.

This is La Rochelle's third successive European Champions Cup final appearance, as they were defeated by Toulouse in 2021, and they will be determined to make the most of this huge opportunity.
