Before the Champions Cup final, Leinster and Toulouse technically have two games to play: the Irish host Ospreys before traveling to Ulster in the URC Championship, and Stade Toulouse host the Parisians before traveling to Montpellier. Top 14.

But on the Leinster side, we are well aware that URC is not the club's priority and Leo Cullen will certainly change his squad. Ugo Mola, for his part, is fighting on all fronts. His side can even go top of the standings if they beat Stade Français on Sunday evening. The top 14 is not taken lightly, so while Ugo Mola will undoubtedly drop a few players, will he rotate his entire squad for this meeting and the next?

Uneven novelty for the finale?

The manager of Rouge et Noir will face a headache regarding the management of his workers. Hugo Mola also took the liberty in a press conference to talk about the disparity between Irish clubs and French clubs in terms of calendars and the state of player freshness at the end of the season. A more telling difference at international level is that the Blues have to manage the Champions Cup, 6 Nations and Top 14 (this season's World Cup), while the XV du Trèfle's players have been used mainly for the 6 Nations. , World Cup and Champions Cup.

Recently, Leinster sent their B cadets to South Africa to play the Lions and Stormers. We were entitled to two counted matches. This is our configuration, our rugby in France…

However, Ugo Mola suggests that some players will still be cut to stay in shape at the end of the season. Even if it doesn't suit the staff, we're not talking about the luxury allowed to the players here, but the need to avoid potentially painful physical problems.
