Watch: The Internet Remains Undefeated In Champions Cup Build-Up

BY Philip Bendon  ·  Friday May 27, 2022

Leinster Rugby once again sit on the cusp of history as they look to add a fifth Champions Cup title to their immensely impressive trophy cabinet.

Standing in their way remains a familiar foe, the team that knocked them out at the semi-finals just a season ago.

La Rochelle who are coached by Munster and Ireland legend Ronan O’Gara pose a formidable threat to high flying Dubliners.

Whilst Leinster correctly enter the contest as betting favourites due to their season long form where they have been utterly dominant across both the Champions Cup and United Rugby Championship.

In an interesting subplot the head-to-head of former rivals turned friends Jonathan Sexton and O’Gara has become a real talking point once again.

Whilst their battles on the field of play over the years has often led to fireworks, O’Gara will no doubt be instructing his charges on ways to unsettle the Leinster kingpin.

This rivalry has led to several think pieces in the media over the past few weeks, however this video from @Steven P Connolly takes the cake for the best piece of content so far!
