Leinster’s Isa Nacewa and Jamie Heaslip celebrate with the Amlin Challenge Cup after last night’s emphatic victory over Stade Francais at the RDS.

Leinster's Paris-bound out-half Jonathan Sexton picked up the man-of-the-match award as the Irish side romped to Amlin Challenge Cup success and then declared his willingness to work alongside Ronan O'Gara next season.

O'Gara has been unveiled as a kicking coach with Racing Metro, having announced his retirement from playing and will link up on a two-year deal, with some of his duties including being kicking coach for the senior side.

And in a radio interview to be broadcast today on Newstalk, Sexton has revealed that he will be delighted to work alongside his former Ireland out-half rival when the pair begin pre-season duties in August.

Meanwhile, Jamie Heaslip believes Leinster have learned from their past mistakes and will be able to back up last night's win by doing the double.

A 34-13 win over Stade Francais saw Joe Schmidt's side became the first to hold both the Challenge Cup and the Heineken Cup after collecting their fourth European trophy in five years and the New Zealander's third trophy in his third and final season before he takes over with Ireland.
