Europe's two best. So hyped. LFG
 
Carley in the middle.

The best two clubs in the world finally meet in a final. Most excited I've been since the clermont Toulon matchups.

Toulouse wins unless Ramos gets a red card.
 
leinster winning a few champions cups and Ireland winning a World Cup will do wonders for sexton's legacy
 
Has anyone meentioned only the amount of stars on your jersey matters yet.
 
Going as a neutral. Don't care who wins, just want a decent game of rugby
 
Ryan, Keenan and Connors all passed fit. Ringrose to be assessed later in the week (have anecdotally heard he's out of the summer tour).
 
Rumours Ramos on bench and Kinghorn starts.

For Leinster rumoured team:
Porter
Sheehan
Furlong
Jenkins
McCarthy
Baird
Connors
Doris
JGP
R Byrne
Lowe
Henshaw
Osbourne
Larmour
Keenan

Kelliher
Healy
Big Mike
Ryan
Van Der Flier
Conan
McGrath
Frawley

Did see a rumoured Toulouse team somewhere but think 5 was the only big call.

Edit: Per French Media:
1 Baille
2 Marchand
3 Aldegheri
4 Flament
5 Meafou
6 Cros
7 Willis
8 Roumat
9 Dupont
10 Ntamack
11 Lebel
12 Ahki
13 Costes
14 Mallia
15 Kinghorn
 


As rumoured. I'd have had Jim but like it otherwise. Having Ryan and VDF off the bench to counteract Ala'alatoa's presence is intelligence in its highest form from Neinaber.
 
I was wondering why they were starting on the bench.
It was a bit tongue in cheek! Conners has been preferred this season in big matches, an international in his own right derailed by two huge injuries and Ryan still on the mend after three months is probably the more accurate answer.

Still, we've scored 3 points in the last 20 minutes of the last three finals played in combined so it can't hurt to bring one of the club captains, a Lion and a former WPOTY off the bench.
