Leinster Looking For 4th European Title This Evening

Racing 92’s Teddy Iribaren

"We looked at each other in the changing room after the Scarlets match and thought we could go to the next level".

The showpiece - taking place in Bilbao, Spain - will be live on BT Sport 2 from 4pm on Saturday afternoon and you can find out how to watch here!

Expected to be made a decision to by performance in this year's Champions Cup final, Scott Fardy, Tadhg Furlong and Johnny Sexton are the three Leinster players up for the award.

The former England lock, who played in both the 2003 and 2007 World Cup finals, says that even those huge fixtures did not make him as nervous as his first European Cup final. "To have my wife here and son - and Sophie at home - that is for them really".

'Leo was in the infancy of his coaching career, he would have been the first to admit that, so to bring someone so senior in, to me that just highlights the confidence he has in himself and his own ability'.

Laurent Labit was understandably frustrated at Racing's defeat in Bilbao, having lost 15-12 to a Isa Nacewa kick with just two minutes remaining.

Met Gala 2018: Memes that will make you cry out with laughter
The biggest fashion event of the year, Met Gala took place on May 7, followed by a lavish after-party. But the hilarious memes and connotations to the outfits by the netizens are ruling the internet.

"We were very close. I think that's been the big difference".

Sexton suffered his second miss from long range, following a James Ryan lineout steal, and as the contest became increasingly scrappy, Iribaren's only penalty miss let Dan Leavy off the hook for a high tackle.

"These are his last games - there's a lot to play for".

While a rich Racing do have players from over nine nationalities to choose from, Cullen's Cup-winning side boast the bulk of the Irish team that claimed the Six Nations "Grand Slam", something Labit was keen to highlight speaking after the game via The Irish Independent. He was their goal kicker and their playmaker who got them going.

Dan Carter, Joe Rokocoko and Ben Tameifuna are aiming to complete a double of Champions Cup and Super Rugby, a feat that can also be accomplished by Leinster's Jamison Gibson-Park.
