Find here all of our live #RUGBY
7:54 p.m. : @happy granny Unfortunately, I never claimed oracle status for sports predictions (otherwise I would be reading this live on my yacht ;-)). Congratulations to the Rochelais for making me lie!
7:53 p.m. : They did it well done La Rochelle! Pierre bad prognosis but not very serious!!!!
7:53 p.m. : La Rochelle, it’s not just the Francofolies
7:52 p.m. : Yeah yeah yeah La Rochelle won A big congratulations to all these players. A very big club for Poitou-Charentes 💙💚💛💜
7:50 p.m. : Pure happiness!!! Thank you and congratulations to the Maritimes. ❤️👏✌️
7:50 p.m. : “We showed that we had rage and that we would not let go”reacts hot Greg Alldritt, the lung of the La Rochelle team on France 2.
7:49 p.m. : Well done La Rochelle. 3 tries to 0
7:49 p.m. : And frankly, does this French domination not bode well for the World Cup? 🙂
7:48 p.m. : Oh bug! At the start of the match, if someone had told me that La Rochelle was going to win, I wouldn’t have believed it!!!
7:48 p.m. : Not a bit dry anymore, heart racing but what happiness!!!
7:48 p.m. : I would not have bet my shirt
7:48 p.m. : WHAT AN EXPLOITTTTTTT!!!!! Unbelievable !!! Congratulations Rochelais!!!
7:49 p.m. : Rugby is a sport that is played 15 against 15 and in the end, it is the French who win! After the Six Nations Tournament, after the small European Cup last night for Lyon, La Rochelle won the Champions Cup against Leinster (24-21)!
7:46 p.m. : Rochelais test signed Arthur Retière which stretches full length to put the ball on the line! At the last minute! La Rochelle passes in front one minute from the end! 22-21 for the Maritimes, heroes!
7:44 p.m. : It’s been a good five minutes since the La Rochelle forwards camped two meters from the Leinster goal line, but for the moment, a heroic defense by the Irish and some clumsiness by the Maritimes are preventing the La Rochelais from scoring.
7:37 p.m. : What a passionate end to the game go La Rochelais! The suspense is huge!
7:36 p.m. : @Cdn I do not hide from you that I have trouble seeing La Rochelle win, even if I am quite disappointed with the performance of the Irish, who win thanks to Sexton’s foot and La Rochelle’s indiscipline…
7:34 p.m. : It’s unbreathable this end of the game! Go La Rochelle, we believe in it!!!
7:25 p.m. : Ouch, ouch, ouch, Thomas Lavault has just received a yellow card for a hook-legs on an opponent. Ten minutes shorthanded which could cost the Maritimes dearly, with only a quarter of an hour left to play. 21-17 for the Irish66th.
7:39 p.m. : The La Rochelle try to restart this match! It was the hooker Pierre Bourgarit who flattened after a forward action. The test is transformed, and here is La Rochelle again at a point of the Irish (, 63rd).
7:08 p.m. : Ouch, ouch, ouch, Jonathan Sexton has once again found the space between the posts, which brings the advantage of the Irish to 8 points. Or more than a converted essay. It’s time for the Maritimes to set this game on fire, on the feeling that Leinster is putting them to sleep. Another 25 minutes to have no regrets.
7:02 p.m. : I see you bitching about the refereeing in the comments, but still, the Irish are taking off a bit in this final on a new minor (50th). For the show, we will come back.
6:55 p.m. : Gentlemen of Rochelle, shoot first. Reduction of the score from the start for the Maritimes, which amounts to 2 small points thanks to a penalty. 12-10 for Leinstermaximum suspense for the next 38 minutes.
6:39 p.m. : And the arbitration as always favorable to the Anglo-Saxons… Something will have to be done one day…
6:39 p.m. : I’m in apnea! Go Maritimes!!!
6:37 p.m. : It’s the break at the Stade Vélodrome. If Leinster leads narrowly in the score (12-7, with a weakness at the last second), the Rochelais offer a solid performance, especially in defense, which stifles the Irish offensive inclinations. The Maritimes are still in the game!
6:12 p.m. : The Irish return to the scoreboard thanks to a sensitivity of the inevitable Johnny Sexton (, 24th minute).
6:29 p.m. : The reaction of the Rochelais, who led 6-0 because of their indiscipline! It was the Rhule wing that scored a marvelous try by slaloming through the Irish defence. “Rhule Britannia”, as we say among the Anglo-Saxons 😉 7-6 for La Rochelle after the transformation between the poles.
5:52 p.m. : I’m afraid that all hopes of a season will be ruined in a week. Go get eaten by the LOU next week….
5:51 p.m. : The indestructible Jonathan Sexton is beautiful with a slight gray at the temples, it is the Rochelais who can get gray hair because of his skill at the foot. This first penalty of the match confirms the domination of the Irish at the start of the match. 3-0 for Leinster6th.
5:48 p.m. : Well I want to believe it. They deserve a win. I have nothing against the Irish quite the contrary because the enemies of our enemies are my friends. Nothing against the English either but hey….So tonight go La Rochelle
5:46 p.m. : Let’s go for this European Cup final between Leinster and La Rochelle in a Velodrome stadium all in blue (color of Leinster) and yellow (color of the Maritimes) dressed.
5:34 p.m. : La Rochelle takes possession of the Vélodrome…
5:34 p.m. : All in chorus with the @[email protected]
5:33 p.m. : @Matou06 I predict a fairly clear victory for the Irish, say 30-15 for Leinster.
5:33 p.m. : It will be Lens (ter) against La Rochelle: 21 to 6, with Pierre in charge.
5:32 p.m. : Great sports evening in our country! And a strong thought for the players of @staderochelais who are preparing from 5:45 p.m. to challenge the Irish of Leinster in the final of the European Rugby Cup, to hang their 1st European star! Good luck ! @ChampionsCup_EN
5:32 p.m. : @malorie la rochelle The (brand new) Sports Minister Amélie Oudéa-Castéra tweeted in support of the Maritimes.
5:31 p.m. : Go Stade Rochelais. You have to believe !
5:01 p.m. : Look no further for the great initiative of the day: a restaurateur from La Rochelle closed his restaurant today and took his staff to Marseille to attend the final, reports South West. Casually, it represents a bit of logistics: we had to rent a minibus to take 14 people. “We have a loyal staff, we’ve been working together for years, we get along well. It will do everyone good to breathe a little before attacking the summer season.confides François Faure to the regional daily. A bit like a cohesion stadium at the start of the year! “
4:24 p.m. : Rugby fans have an appointment at 5:45 p.m. for the European Cup final between La Rochelle and the Irish of Leinster. We are not going to lie to each other, the Clover players are big favorites after their demonstration against Toulouse in the semi-finals. And the Maritimes must stop an impressive series of lost finals. Our friends from franceinfo sport give you the keys to the match.
