Saracens crowned European champions
Saracens were crowned champions of Europe for the third time in four years as they came from 10-0 down to beat last year’s winners Leinster 20-10.
The Irish side, who beat Saracens in the quarter-finals last year and were seeking a record fifth triumph, found their rhythm first and a try for Tadhg Furlong put them 10-0 up, only for Saracens to force their way into the game with a brilliantly-created Sean Maitland try to make it 10-10 at the break.
Both sides defended ferociously in a brutal third quarter but Saracens took advantage of a yellow card for Scott Fardy as another Owen Farrell penalty and a try by Billy Vunipola off the back of a scrum made it 20-10 to the London side.
Saracens were able to play out the remainder of the game largely in the Leinster half and see out the victoryPublished: by Radio NewsHub
