Leinster Appeals For Fans To Arrive Early

Leinster Coach pleads with supporters to arrive early arrival ahead of this weekend's battle with La Rochelle.

Stuart Lancaster has asked Leinster fans to turn up early for Saturday's Heineken Champions Cup final.

The senior coach believes that a sea of blue could help his side as they bid for a fifth star.

Leo Cullen's side will face the defending champions in the final for the second year in a row. 

Twelve months ago, Leinster were defeated 24-21 to Ronan O'Gara's side in the final in Marseille, with La Rochelle scoring the winning try in the final play of the game.

Lancaster has urged fans to make an extra effort this weekend. 

"I was in the stadium for the Ireland-England Grand Slam game in March and the energy the Irish crowd gave the team that day...Ireland, as you know, didn't play their best but the energy the crowd give teams is incredible.

"There have been times for Leinster, over the last couple of years some amazing occasions when people have got in early, and they are in their seats and the teams are warming up and you can feel the energy build.

"It will be an amazing occasion so get in early, please."

The match will take place this Saturday at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin with a 4.45pm kick-off.
