This clash of European titans will result in a clash of half-backs

As someone who grew up in football-mad south Dublin in the 50’s and 60’s, the beautiful game was our passion and Real Madrid the flag bearer. They still are. The Spanish Galacticos have stood the test of time. Even my own beloved Leeds in their absolute pomp changed the club’s official garb to all white under Don Revie in honor of the Champion Club that everyone else in Europe and beyond sought to emulate.

ix overall victories and eight appearances in finals between 1956 and 1966 put her on a pedestal for all time. Four decades later, much like Madrid in football, Toulouse had come out of the blocks fastest in rugby. Their initial winning streak was nowhere near as strong as that of the Spanish football giants, but with five overall wins and seven European Cup finals appearances in 27 years, they are the aristocratic rugby equivalent. And that shouldn’t detract from Leinster’s performances in the parallel period.
