Leinster win European Cup after beating Racing 92 15-12

So, a final reminder on where to watch Leinster vs Racing 92 - Sky Sports Action or BT Sport 2 - Kick-off 4.45pm.

The men in blue came up short both in Europe and domestically last season, losing their Champions Cup semi-final to Clermont and then slipping to a shock defeat to the Scarlets in the Pro14 semi-final.

"It's one of the great challenges that we face as a club moving forward - you see some of the French teams and the resources they have available and the calibre of players they have been signing over the years makes it a great challenge for us".

"I remember thinking I will never be this nervous for a game again and even playing in World Cup finals, I never was", Kay revealed.

'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'.

"We went to Stade Francais' back yard - their stadium was just over the road from the Parc des Princes where we played the final - and beat them".

Fly-half Johnny Sexton can be expected to keep the scoreboard moving in their favour by nailing his kicks and Leinster are fancied to cover a five-point second-half handicap.

After a flawless performance in the pool stages, Leinster progressed to the quarter-final with a 100% win record.

LEINSTER (v Racing 92): Rob Kearney; Jordan Larmour, Garry Ringrose, Robbie Henshaw, Isa Nacewa (capt); Jonathan Sexton, Luke McGrath; Cian Healy, Sean Cronin, Tadhg Furlong, Devin Toner, James Ryan, Scott Fardy, Dan Leavy, Jordi Murphy. "I hope to return home with a big smile on my face, holding the trophy". He was their goal kicker and their playmaker who got them going. We're under no illusions, it's a very formidable bunch of players that we'll be up against. Any team that can leave Dan Carter on the bench is a serious threat.
