It's been a strange journey to having this match on the traditional last weekend of the European rugby pool stage. Covid initially saw the game scheduled for St. Stephen's Day postponed.

"You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

The Heineken Cup was a beautiful tournament back in the day!

Remember the excitement when the pools were announced in the summer? Trying to get away trips booked before the airlines and hotels hiked up the prices. Working out the form of the opponents in the pool to see what the chances were. The massive crowds, the bad days and then the great days.
