STREAM HERE >>> Leinster vs La Rochelle free stream online European Rugby Champion Cup Final Full HD
Can Leinster put that fifth star on the jersey, or will La Rochelle finally clinch their first European title? There’s a sense of unfinished business for both teams, who each lost their last Champions Cup final, and this clash of styles promises to serve up an intriguing contest. Read on as we explain how to watch a Leinster vs La Rochelle live stream in the 2021-22 European Rugby Champions Cup final from anywhere in the world
Leinster secured their place in the final with an emphatic 40-17 victory over reigning champions Toulouse, but the win came at a price. James Lowe and Tadhg Furlong are both in a race against time to recover from the ankle and shin injuries they picked up last weekend. Furlong’s passing prowess is a key weapon that Leo Cullen will want to use to drag La Rochelle around the pitch.
Disruption will be the aim of the game for Ronan O’Gara, with La Rochelle’s colossal forwards Emmanuel Meafou and Rory Arnold hoping for as many opportunities as possible in which to physically dominate their opponents from set pieces. They beat Leinster at the semi-final stage a year ago, but Grégory Alldritt will know that that will only spur the Irish province on to greater resolve.
If you’re abroad this weekend and try to access your usual domestic stream of the rugby, you’ll find that you can’t. This is because of something called geo-blocking, which restricts content to a specific area or country.
You can get around this by using a VPN, which allows you to virtually relocate your laptop, phone or streaming device back to your country of residence – thereby regaining access to all the streaming services and content you normally enjoy at home.
England’s Wayne Barnes has been selected to referee Leinster’s Heineken Champions Cup decider against Ronan O’Gara’s La Rochelle in Marseille on May 28.
It will be Barnes’ third Heineken Champions Cup final, having previously taken charge of the 2010 decider between Biarritz and Toulouse and the 2018 decider between Leinster and Racing 92. It will be the vastly experienced Barnes’ 90th European game.
He will be assisted by English duo Matthew Carley and Christophe Ridley, with Tom Foley of England as TMO and Italy’s Stefano Marrama as Citing Commissioner.
England’s Luke Pearce has been selected for the EPCR Challenge Cup final between Lyon and Toulon. That game is also on in the Stade Velodrome in Marseille, on May 27.
Pearce refereed last season’s Heineken Champions Cup final. His assistant referees will be Ireland’s Andrew Brace and Frank Murphy. England’s Ian Tempest will be the TMO with Ed Kenny of Ireland as the Citing Commissioner.
