A cagey affair that was decided by Isa Nacewa, Leinster have reclaimed the Champions Cup with a 15-12 defeat of Racing 92.
Hotly-tipped for success prior to this evening's match, Racing's depleted side put in a valiant effort that saw them pipped with only the odd minute remaining.
With no side ever getting any further than three points ahead of the other, it was with some surprise that Johnny Sexton stepped away from kicking-duty in the place of the departing Nacewa.
Faced with two kicks in the dying moments of the game, the New Zealander was flawless in his execution.
However, with the game tied at 12-12, Racing will have reason to wonder what could have been if not for the misjudgment of Teddy Thomas.
From a Leinster line-out, Racing's Leone Nakawara stole possession superbly. As the ball fell to Thomas, instead of perhaps relieving the pressure, he ran it.
Directed straight back into touch, Leinster were awarded a repeat of the line-out; this time leading to the decisive Nacewa penalty. With Thomas himself looking unsure at what had happened, you can see the incident play out below.
