'It was one of the best finals' - Leinster fans praise worthy champions as drive for five comes to a halt
Leinster's drive for five came to a shuddering halt as the Saracens juggernaut put paid to their challenge.
Leinster fans will travel home knowing their team gave their best but were beaten by a worthy champion.
Tries from Sean Maitland and the monstrous Billy Vunipola saw Sarries home and they fully deserved it.
Leinster will now have to pick themselves up again after a bruising defeat.
In the aftermath of the game fans were not despondent but acknowledged Sarries had outmuscled the blues.
John Lynch and Patricia from Rathmines in Dublin agreed it was a game of fine margins.
John said: "Sarries were invincible in defence. They were awesome.
"That was one of the best finals. Two great teams.
"You couldn't really pick a Leinster player who played too badly."
Patricia added: "The try at half time was the big difference."
Conor Lawson from Skerries, north Dublin flat referee Jerome Garces let Saracens away lightly on the offside line.
He said: "Itoje and the vunipolas were at it all game.
"It's tough to take."
