Champions Cup Highlights: Lyon v Leinster

Many were expecting Lyon to defend their home ground this afternoon, this was not to be the case as Leinster used their best weapon to their advantage. Known for solid defence, the Irish side held their opposition at bay for nearly the whole game as Jonathan Wisniewski got onto the scoreboard in the 70th minute, the first Lyon score. This was after 10 points by the away side and even a yellow card to Jordan Larmour in the 27th minute. In the final 5 minutes of the game both sides exchanged kick, Jonathan Sexton's kick in the 76th minute to extend their lead and to deny Lyon a bonus point. However Lyon manage to secure a penalty in the 78th minute, and Jonathan Wisniewski had to go for poles. Max Deegon was the only try scorer in the 22nd minute and there was a huge defensive shift by Josh vd Flier.
