Leinster v La Rochelle will take place on 20th May 2023. The Leinster and La Rochelle matchup from the 2022 Heineken Cup Champions Final will be repeated in 2023.
The French team, led by Irish sports great Ronan O’Gara, won the championship game last year by a score of 24-21.
For the second consecutive year, Leinster Rugby and Stade Rochelais square off in the Heineken Champions Cup as the Irish province seeks to wreak revenge on their French rivals.
The Aviva Stadium in Dublin is expected to be packed when the game begins at 16:45 (UK and Irish time) on Saturday.
Leinster will be attempting to match Stade Toulousain’s record haul of championships after being denied a fifth Heineken Champions Cup victory by La Rochelle in the season’s championship game in Marseille last year.
Where is Leinster vs La Rochelle on?
Leinster will have home comforts when they host La Rochelle at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin and will be keen to avoid back-to-back defeats there after losing to Munster in the URC semis last Saturday.
