French Heineken Cup Final


It will be all French Heineken Cup Final. Clermont Auvergne defeated Munster 16:10 and Toulon beat Saracens 12:24.  Both teams will play in the final for the first time ever. After terrible performance in the Six Nations, French honour is saved by the clubs' success.  It will be the forth all French Heineken Cup Final.
Clermont which has a team full of superstars started the game better and was leading 16:3. Munstermen showed a great spirit though, and managed to close the gap to 6 points and scared their rivals in the second half.

The hero of the second semi-final was Jonny Wilkinson. He succeeded with seven penalties and a drop-goal. Owen Farrell replied with four penalties. Jonny Wilkinson’s (who will soon be 34) recent amazing performances put him through as the candidate to the British and Irish Lions squad. Although, he played down his Lions hopes, saying that the place should be awarded to the younger players, many rugby fans would like to see him wearing the Lion’s jersey.

The final game take place in Dublin on the 18th of May.
