Champions Cup lineups: Leinster vs Northampton Saints

The pinnacle of European rugby will be soon upon us as the final of the Champions Cup comes into view. In just over three weeks, the best of the best will face off in front of a packed out crowd at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Who will be in the final, is yet to be decided, however.

First up, we have two action-packed semi-finals, involving two English teams, one four-time winning Irish team, and a record five- time winning French side.

The weekend kicks off with Leinster vs Northampton Saint at the famous Croke Park Stadium on Saturday, in what is expected to be an incredibly passionate affair in front of a fully pumped up Irish crowd.

Leinster head into the match as favourites, but are expected to be heavily tested by a Northampton side that currently lead the English Premiership. Northampton boast an impressive backline that has scored a third of all their tries this season, whilst Leinster are in possession of an almighty international pack that is expected to limit any opportunities for the English side to go wide.
