Leinster to face stade francais in Amlin final
Sunday 28 April 2013
Leinster head coach Joe Schmidt felt his side delivered one of their best displays of the year as they booked their place in the Amlin Challenge Cup final with a 44-16 romp over defending champions Biarritz.
Schmidt's men ran out comfortable five-try winners at a sold-out RDS, where the province will host Stade Français in the final on 17 May.
"It was definitely up there," said Schmidt of the performance.
"If we are allowed to play we really enjoy playing, I think that was demonstrated."
Two tries from Jamie Heaslip plus further scores from Jonathan Sexton, Isa Nacewa and Brian O'Driscoll set up the win before Arnaud Héguy's consolation try for Biarritz.
