Leinster & Saracens Combined XV As Chosen By You

The two heavyweights of Europe, Leinster and Saracens, meet in the Heineken Champions Cup final today at 5pm in St James Park, Newcastle.

Leinster are aiming for their fifth title, their second in-a-row, while Saracens will be hoping to lift the trophy for the third time.

Ahead of the game, we asked you to vote for your preferred team from the two starting lineups and the results are in.

Only four Saracens players were chosen over their Leinster counterparts with Leo Cullen’s side completing a clean sweep in the backs.

Mako Vunipola and Jamie George were preferred over Cian Healy and Sean Cronin in the front row and they are joined by Tadhg Furlong who received an overwhelming 99 percent of the vote.

It is an all Leinster second row but Mark McCall’s players dominate the back row with Maro Itoje and Billy Vunipola chosen alongside Sean O’Brien.
