The Heineken Champions Cup Rewind will feature two European classics this weekend on what would’ve been European Finals Weekend at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille.
Kicking off on Friday night, we have a re-run of the 2001 Heineken Cup final between Leicester Tigers and Stade Français Paris, a match famed for the kicking clash between Diego Dominguez and Tim Stimpson as well as a brace from Leon Lloyd, who will offer insight on the match throughout the week.
Then on Saturday afternoon, we travel back to 2015 for a vintage semi-final from Marseille between RC Toulon and Leinster Rugby, a clash fondly remembered by the Toulon faithful for a stunning intercept try in extra time from wing Bryan Habana.
You can watch all the ‘pre-match’ coverage on Friday from 19:30 (UK and Irish time) with kick-off at 20:00 while on Saturday, the live blog gets under way at 17:15, with the match stream from Marseille getting underway at 17:45.
The matches can be found on ChampionsCupRugby.com and will be the seventh and eighth of our Heineken Champions Cup Rewinds to be shown on site and our various social media feeds.
