Racing 92 vs Saracens full match Final European Rugby Champions Cup 2015-16

The Heineken Cup was launched in the summer of on the initiative of the then Five Nations Committee to provide a new level of professional cross border competition.

Toulouse went on to become the first European cup winners, eventually beating Cardiff in extra time in front of a crowd of 21, at Cardiff Arms Park.

Clubs from England and Scotland joined the competition in — The Heineken Cup now had 20 teams divided into four pools of five. After 46 matches, Brive beat Leicester 28—9 in front of a crowd of 41, at Cardiff Arms Park , the match watched by an estimated television audience of 35 million in 86 countries.

The season —98 saw the introduction of a home and away format in the pool games. Brive reached the final again but were beaten late in the game by Bath with a penalty kick.

Ironically, English clubs had decided to withdraw from the competition in a dispute over the way it was run.

Without English clubs, the —99 tournament revolved around France, Italy and the Celtic nations. Sixteen teams took part in four pools of four.

French clubs filled the top positions in three of the groups and for the fourth consecutive year a French club, in the shape of Colomiers from the Toulouse suburbs, reached the final.

Ulster then carried home the trophy after a 21—6 win over Colomiers in front of a capacity 49, crowd.

English clubs returned in — The pool stages were spread over three months to allow the competition to develop alongside the nations' own domestic competitions, and the knockout stages were scheduled to take the tournament into the early spring.

For the first time clubs from four different nations — England, Ireland, France and Wales — made it through to the semi-finals.

Munster's defeat of Toulouse in Bordeaux ended France's record of having contested every final and Northampton Saints ' victory over Llanelli made them the third English club to make it to the final.

The competition was decided with a final between Munster and Northampton, with Northampton coming out on top by a single point to claim their first major honour.

The final, at Parc des Princes , Paris, attracted a crowd of 44, and the result was in the balance right up until the final whistle, but Leicester walked off 34—30 winners.

Leicester pipped Llanelli in the last four, after the Scarlets had halted Leicester's match Heineken Cup winning streak in the pool stages.

A record crowd saw Leicester become the first side to successfully defend their title. Toulouse's victory over French rivals Perpignan in meant that they joined Leicester as the only teams to win the title twice.

Henceforth, Wales entered regional sides rather than the club sides that had previously competed. English side London Wasps had earned their first final appearance by beating Munster 37—32 in a Dublin semi-final while Toulouse triumphed 19—11 in an all-French contest with Biarritz in a packed Stade Chaban-Delmas in Bordeaux.

The final saw Wasps defeat defending champions Toulouse 27—20 at Twickenham to win the Heineken Cup for the first time.

The match was widely hailed as one of the best finals. With extra time looming at 20—20, a late opportunist try by scrum half Rob Howley settled the contest.

He repeated this in the initial stages of extra time and then sealed his side's success with a superb opportunist drop-goal.

Toulouse became the first team to win three Heineken Cup titles. The —07 Heineken Cup would be distributed to over countries following Pitch International's securing of the rights.

Biarritz went into their final match at Northampton Saints with a chance to become the first team ever to score bonus-point wins in all their pool matches, but were only able to score two of the four tries needed.

Leicester defeated Llanelli Scarlets to move into the final at Twickenham, with the possibility of winning a Treble of championships on the cards, having already won the EDF Energy Cup and the Guinness Premiership.

However, Wasps won the final 25 points to 9 in front of a tournament record 81, fans. During competition there was uncertainty over the future of the tournament after the —07 season as French clubs had announced that they would not take part because of fixture congestion following the Rugby World Cup and an ongoing dispute between English clubs and the RFU.

We have spoken to our FDR clubs, and if they want to compete we will support them. On 20 May it was announced that both French and English top-tier teams would be competing [14].

In the final, Munster won the cup for their second time ever by beating Toulouse at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Leinster won the title in in their first ever final after beating Munster in the semi-final in front of a then world record Rugby Union club match attendance in Croke Park.

They also beat Harlequins 6—5 in the quarter-finals at Twickenham Stoop , in the famous Bloodgate scandal. The 16th Heineken Cup tournament in resulted in an Irish province lifting the title for the fourth time in six years as Leinster recorded their second triumph in the competition.

They defeated former multiple Heineken Cup winners Leicester and Toulouse in the quarter- and semi-finals. At the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, in front of 72, spectators, [15] Leinster fought back from a 22—6 half-time deficit in the final against Northampton Saints , scoring 27 unanswered points in 26 second-half minutes, winning 33—22 in one of the tournament's greatest comebacks.

Jonathan Sexton won the man-of-the-match award, having scored 28 of Leinster's points total, which included two tries , three conversions , and four penalties.

Leinster successfully defended their crown in at Twickenham, eclipsing fellow Irish province and former champions Ulster 42—14 to establish the highest Heineken Cup final winning margin.

The performance broke a number of Heineken Cup Final records. In addition, the game had the highest attendance at a final 81, , the highest number of tries 5 and points 42 scored by one team and the highest points difference The final edition of the tournament as constituted as the Heineken Cup was won for a second time by Toulon at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff in May The tournament began on 17 October , with Harlequins playing Castres Olympique in the first ever Champions Cup game.

Toulon retained their title, beating Clermont 24—18 in a repeat of the Heineken Cup Final , thereby becoming the first club to win three European titles in a row.

Saracens won their first title defeating Racing 92 in Lyon 21—9 in final and followed it up with their second in , beating Clermont 28—17 in Edinburgh.

Leinster went on to face the back to back Champions Saracens , dispatching a defeat at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, to set up a semi-final against reigning Guinness Pro12 champions Scarlets [23].

Leinster defeated Racing 92 by a scoreline of 15 - 12, becoming only the second team in history to earn four European titles [24]. A total of 20 teams qualify for the competition, 4 fewer than used to qualify for the Heineken Cup, 19 teams qualify automatically based on position in their respective leagues:.

The final team each season qualifies through a play-off competition between the best placed unqualified teams.

For the pool stage there are five pools of four teams. The teams are ranked based on domestic league performance the previous season, and arranged into four tiers of five teams.

Teams are then drawn from the tiers into pools at random, with the restriction that no pool shall contain two teams from the same country or league, until the allocation of Tier 4, which contains the sixth English and French teams, the sixth and seventh Pro14 team and the winner of the play-off.

Teams will play the other three teams in the pool twice, at home and away, and match points will be awarded depending on the result of each game, with teams receiving four points for a win, and two for a draw.

Following the completion of the pool stage, the five pool winners, and the three best pool runners-up qualify for the knock-out stage. The eight quarter-finalists are seeded — pool winners from 1—5, and runners-up from 6—8 — based on performance in their respective pool.

The four pool winners with the best pool record receive home advantage for the quarter-finals against one of the lower-seeded teams.

The quarter-final are unbracketed, and follow the standard 1v8, 2v7, 3v6, 4v5 format, as found in the Heineken Cup. The winners of the quarter-finals will contest the two semi-finals, Up to and including the —15 season, matches and home country advantage were determined by a draw by EPCR.

In —16 EPCR decided to put a new procedure in place. In lieu of the draw that used to determine the semi-final pairing, EPCR announced that a fixed semi-final bracket would be set in advance, and that the home team would be designated based on "performances by clubs during the pool stages as well as the achievement of a winning a quarter-final match away from home".

Semi-final matches must be played at a neutral ground in the designated home team's country. Home country advantage will be awarded as follows: The winners of the semi-finals will contest the final, which will be held no later than the first weekend of May each season.

English and French rugby union clubs had long held concerns over the format and structure of the Heineken Cup organised by European Rugby Cup ERC , predominantly in relation to the distribution of funds and an imbalance in the qualification process.

This founding principle was eventually conceded however, when it was agreed that the top-placed teams from the four should participate in the new European competition.

ERC responded with claims that Premiership Rugby did not have the rights to a European tournament and announced a four-year deal with Sky Sports.

The actions of Premiership Rugby were said to have "thrown northern hemisphere rugby into disarray". Subsequently, in September , the English and French clubs announced their intention to organise their own tournament, to be named the Rugby Champions Cup, from —15 season onwards, and invited other European clubs, provinces, and regions to join them.

The IRB now World Rugby stepped into the debate at the same time to announce its opposition to the creation of a breakaway tournament.

Both will split the pool matches, quarter-finals, and semi-finals equally, and both will broadcast the final. Shortly after the establishment of European Professional Club Rugby EPCR to administer the new competition from a new base in Neuchatel, Switzerland, the running of the inaugural —15 tournament was subcontracted to the organisation it had been meant to replace, Dublin-based European Rugby Cup ERC.

This was despite the latter having been described by chairman of Premiership Rugby , Quentin Smith, as "no longer fit for purpose". This was described as "something of an about-turn" by The Daily Telegraph.

EPCR were still looking to hire a permanent chairman and director-general more than a year after their establishment.

The inaugural Champions Cup final was brought forward by three weeks due to a French desire not to interrupt their domestic playoffs.

This was said to have "devalued" and "diminished the status of the occasion as the pinnacle of European club rugby". While the Heineken Cup final had been due to take place at the San Siro in Milan , the first European final to take place in Italy, the new organisers decided to move it to Twickenham Stadium in London in order to "guarantee the best possible financial return to clubs".

This was described as an "embarrassing fiasco" by the Western Mail in Wales. EPCR were said to have "failed on many levels" by The Irish Times , with the attendance figure for the final "a fitting postscript to the hastily-convened decider to what was, after all the brinkmanship, a hastily-convened tournament".

During the creation of the Champions Cup, former organisers ERC had been criticised for "failing to maximise the commercial potential" of the Heineken Cup.

New organisers EPCR pledged to move from a single title sponsor format to a Champions League -style partner system, with 2—3 primary partners projected for the inaugural tournament and 5 being the ultimate target.

However, only Heineken agreed to sign up for the —15 season, at a much reduced price from that which they had been paying previously.

Note that in the case of career statistics, only those clubs for which each player appeared in European Cup fixtures i. Heineken Cup or Champions Cup are listed.

Ronan O'Gara received the inaugural award, being recognised as the best player over the first 15 years of ERC tournaments.

Crafted by Thomas Lyte , [69] the trophy is made of mixed metals including sterling silver and 18ct gold plating. The cup is designed around the idea of the star representing European rugby, including the previous 19 seasons of European rugby, as the Heineken Cup.

The base of the trophy contains the crests of the 10 clubs that won the Heineken Cup, to further reinforce the link between the old and new European competitions [70].

EPCR was criticised for forcing U. Michael Rhodes escaped a card for holding Van der Merwe by the hair, after his try gave Saracens the lead.

Owen Farrell added the conversion then kicked two of three penalties, with an Adam Hastings counter from Warriors. Glasgow were given some harsh lessons in this competition last season.

Their swashbuckling attacking style unravelled in the face of brutal physicality employed by the likes of Leinster and Montpellier as Warriors registered just one win from six pool matches.

By their own high standards, having won the trophy in and , last season was a disappointment for Saracens also, going down to eventual winners Leinster in the quarter-finals.

Bathed in sunshine and packed to the rafters, Scotstoun was the perfect setting for this clash of contrasting styles. Those styles were perfectly illustrated within the opening 60 seconds.

Huw Jones made a searing break to bring an already raucous home crowd to their feet, but they took a collective intake of breath moments later when Ryan Wilson was almost split in two by a monstrous tackle.

Saracens struck first with their first meaningful attack. Sean Maitland, the former Warriors wing, made a break and fed Alex Lozowski. He was knocked into touch by Hastings before offloading, but it went unnoticed and when the ball was whipped one way and then the other, flanker Rhodes was left with an easy run in to score.

The Premiership side were not doing anything special, just the basics very well, and when Farrell added a penalty to his earlier conversion they had established a point lead.

Hastings and Farrell traded penalties and although the visitors looked comfortable on the scoreboard, Glasgow were ruffling the feathers of their celebrated opponents.

Referee Raynal drew the ire of the home fans with a string of contentious calls, and his decision to rule out a Van der Merwe try for an earlier infringement at a ruck ensured the French official went down the tunnel at half-time with boos ringing in his ears.

The next score was key and Saracens ramped things up in an effort to get the try that would end the contest.

They threw everything at the Warriors, passing up numerous kickable penalties to go for the line through Billy Vunipola and Maro Itoje, but they were repelled by the Scots' ferocious defensive effort for fully 17 minutes before the home side were eventually able to release the pressure valve.

Those who headed to northern Spain in search of sun this weekend look set for disappointment but those who have found a way to Bilbao should witness a fine Champions Cup final.

Dan Leavy believes Leinster must find an extra gear if they are to beat Racing 92 and secure a fourth European Cup triumph.

Then there were four. Following a thrilling weekend of rugby, we now know who will contest the Champions and Challenge Cup finals.

Racing 92 scored three tries in the opening 22 minutes to stun Munster and set up a victory that secured their place in the Champions Cup final.

Leinster fly-half Johnny Sexton was able to look forward to a special occasion in Bilbao next month after helping the Irish province to a comfortable win over Scarlets in the Champions Cup semifinal in Dublin.

Donnacha Ryan faces his former Munster teammates with Racing on Sunday but he won't let sentimentality get in the way of his side's quest for a first Champions Cup title.

Leinster cantered into the Champions Cup final with a comprehensive defeat of the Scarlets at the Aviva Stadium. Watch the very best in U.
