European finals weekend - May 2022

It's the Challenge Cup final on Friday evening and here are the teams: Jordan Taufua captains Lyon who also have the ever-improving Joel Kpoku in the second row. Of note in the Toulon side are live-wire wingers Cheslyn Kolbe and Gabin Villière who must be among the quickest and most elusive wingers ...

Kpoku and Taufua have been the big players for Lyon this season, be interesting to see how he gets on versus Estebeth on Friday night.
Is Taufua back?
He's been off with a torn calf muscle but I've read that he hopes to be fit for Friday night.

Re: EPCR Semi finals

I only caught the last 20 minutes - so many penalties! La Rochelle are capable of playing much better than today but up against the class of Leinster, sadly they won’t get the chance. However, my money’s on them to win the Top14.

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Wiaan Liebenberg, who's playing at 6 for La Rochelle this afternoon is Hanro's elder brother.
He played for the Boks U20 in 2012, Blue Bulls between 2011/15 and Montpellier from 2015/18.

Allez, La Rochelle!!

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Completely agree. But what is utterly delightful is we are still growing under SB while Leinster are the finished article and those young Tigers will not be afraid of Leinster if we meet again. It wasn't that long ago that one turnover at Newcastle separated us from the Championship. And I still th...

I feel slightly better about last week now. This is the best team in Europe. Completely agree. But what is utterly delightful is we are still growing under SB while Leinster are the finished article and those young Tigers will not be afraid of Leinster if we meet again. It wasn't that long ago that...

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Remember that La Rochelle beat Leinster last season and they’re in the other semifinal tomorrow. La Rochelle are in a rich vein of form and are one team that could get the better of Leinster, again.
