Earlier this week, when rewatching Leinster’s semi-final defeat to La Rochelle last year, it was difficult not to be struck by just how much has changed in the 12 months since.

Personnel aside, the Leinster team that will depart Dublin for Marseille today are in a far better place than they were when, shorn of several key players, they came up short to an excellent La Rochelle outfit.
