There is something beautiful about this loss.....I’m not sure why or how to put into words but it will come to me. Not today, maybe not tomorrow but I will sleep safe in the knowledge in knowing that tomato is a fruit and I have the wherewithal not to put it in a fruit salad— Leinstertainment (@cianer31son) May 2, 2021
LAR have been excellent and I'm not sure there was much more that Leinster could do.— Overthehillprop (@Overthehillprop) May 2, 2021
Benches were the difference. Leinster unable/unwilling to change either of their half backs tells it's own story.
No complaints with this. Super by LAR. Dominated 2nd half to be fair.— Tom Coleman (@LeinsterRoyalty) May 2, 2021
Cant even be gutted we've been that outplayed. #LARvLEI
Best of luck to La Rochelle in final. Third time Will Skelton has done a number on Leinster. House Private Family Flowers only.— Ciaran (@ciaran69) May 2, 2021
Would have liked to see an Irish team in the final, but hard to deny La Rochelle that win!— EK Rugby Analysis (@ek_rugby) May 2, 2021
Kept the scoreboard ticking over all game, Skelton and Bourgarit menaces at the ruck, defensively so strong.
The Top 14s two form teams this season, should make for a great final.
The intensity and accuracy of @staderochelais not to mention their defense, size and offloading ability has neutralized the @leinsterrugby game plan. Heartbroken for the lads but can’t think of a side I’d rather lose to than this burgeoning La Rochelle group under @RonanOGara10— Jason O'Mara (@jason_omara) May 2, 2021
