Heineken ambassador and former Harlequins and Munster hooker Keith Wood will be joining us this weekend as he hosts the Heineken Champions Cup Rewind double-header, providing in-depth expert analysis as well as a few laughs with some European Rugby legends.
The former Ireland international will take you on a trip down memory lane as we look back at two European classics, kicking off on Friday night with a re-run of the 2001 Heineken Cup final between Leicester Tigers and Stade Français Paris.
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.
Some of our other special guests include Austin Healey and Leon Lloyd, who scored a brace in the 2001 victory to help Leicester earn a maiden European success.
