Leinster to Face La Rochelle Again in Champions Cup Group Stage


Leinster is set to face Ronan O’Gara’s La Rochelle once more in the Champions Cup group stages. This marks the fifth consecutive season the two sides will clash, with Leinster emerging victorious in their most recent encounter during last season’s quarter-final.

The draw places Leo Cullen’s side in Pool 2, alongside Clermont Auvergne, Pat Lam’s Bristol Bears, Bath, and Benetton.

In other pools:

Pool 1: Ulster faces a tough challenge against defending champions Toulouse, Bordeaux-Bègles, Sharks, Exeter Chiefs, and Leicester Tigers.

Pool 3: Munster will compete against Northampton, Vodacom Bulls, Stade Français, Saracens, and Castres.

Pool 4: URC champions Glasgow Warriors are set to play Racing 92, Sale Sharks, DHL Stormers, Toulon, and Harlequins.

Each pool consists of two clubs from the URC, Premiership, and Top 14, with each club playing four pool matches either at home or away.

Meanwhile, Connacht has been drawn in Pool One for next season’s European Challenge Cup, alongside Cardiff, Perpignan, Lyon, Zebre, and Toyota Cheetahs. Dates, venues, and kick-off times will be announced soon.
