Congratulations to Leinster and Cardiff Blues on securing a double for the Pro14 in Europe.
Leinster overcame Racing 15-12 in a campaign that saw them beat the top 2 teams in both the Premiership and Top14 on their way to Champions Cup glory in Bilbao.
Meanwhile Cardiff Blues completed a dramatic fightback against Gloucester to win 31-30 on Friday night and claim the Challenge Cup.
Looking forward to coming up against them both next season.
