The runaway train we all knew about was slow out of the station and while it took ten minutes to pose a threat, by the final quarter it was pretty much brought to a halt. La Rochelle’s victory seemed inevitable.

If both had played to the maximum of their considerable ability, then, on all available evidence, Leinster had to win. Of course, that fairytale scenario didn’t ensue.
