With the 21/22 National Rugby League season over what Rugby Union can we expect during the summer months.
As there is plenty of games to be played, with a variety of outcomes, https://gg.bet/en/esports can help you navigate through all the possibilities.
EPCR Challenge Cup Final
First up is the Challenge Cup final which is being played in Marseille this Friday as two heavy-weight French giants do battle on home soil.
It’s Lyon versus RC Toulon, who are only 4 points apart domestically, who go head to head at the end of the week. Lyon are only one position below Toulon in 8th, but Toulon’s form has been impressive of late, which seems them off the foot of the table a couple of weeks ago having now recorded 5 wins on the bounce.
The final promises to be a thriller with the sides so evenly poised, but with the in-form French international winger Gabin Villière on their side a sensible gg.bet would be on Toulon.
Heineken Champions Cup Final
Next up it’s the pinnacle of European Rugby, the Champions Cup final, and it’s Ireland’s Leinster who face off against France’s Stade Rochelais.
Both sides are in a rich vein of form as they reach the finals which will also be held in Marseille. Leinster hammered a powerful Toulouse side, in a rather shockingly one sided 40-17 affair in their semi-final. La Rochelle didn’t quite put in the dominant performance against Racing 29 in their semi, with the score finishing a much tighter 20-13.
Leinster have been in this position many times before, with a rich history in the competition having won the title 4 times in their last 5 finals.
On the other hand, La Rochelle will be on a mission to win the title after coming agonisingly short last year, losing to Toulouse 17-22.
With all that in mind the final will undoubtedly be a huge arm-wrestle between two European heavyweights. Leinster with their pedigree in the competition and current form make them formidable opponents for any side.
Stade Rochelais are still a significant threat, with master tactician and ex-Munster man Ronan O’Gara at the helm looking to get one over on an old rival, this game is bound to have plenty of fireworks.
Considering the above, Leinster should have enough to get over the line, and lift the Heineken Champions Cup trophy to make it 5 from 6 at the top of the European rugby game.
