RECAP: Leinster v Lyon

READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to the European Cup Round Five encounter between Leinster and Lyon the RDS Arena.

Leinster, who have already qualified for the last eight, will aim to make their own piece of pool history when they entertain Lyon.

The Irish province is currently on an eight-match winning run in the pool stage and has never won nine pool matches in a row.

Lyon is seeking their first-ever away win in the Champions Cup following five successive defeats on the road.
