On this week's episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald are joined by Irish Independent rugby correspondent Cian Tracey to recap Leinster's Champions Cup final win against Racing 92.

Leo Cullen's side sealed a fourth European Cup win, and Luke reflects on what it was like watching his former team win the trophy for the first time without him. The lads discuss the reasons why the future is bright for Leinster, from James Ryan's emergence to their massive strength in depth.

Next up is Munster at the RDS in this Saturday's PRO 14 semi-final and Luke warns that Leinster must be on their guard to avoid an upset defeat.

The lads also give their choice for European Player of the Year and look ahead to the summer tour to Australia.
