Behind-the-scenes look at Leinster's Champions Cup celebrations

When it's been six years since your last European Cup win, you celebrate accordingly.

Whether it was Leinster veterans Johnny Sexton and Isa Nacewa leading choruses of 'OléOlé, Olé' in the changing rooms or first-year player James Lowe jumping all over his teammates in his suit, Saturday's Champions Cup win clearly meant a lot to Leinster.

The province's 15-12 win over Racing in Bilbao on Saturday marked Leinster's fourth European Cup win. A victory, which, subsequently drew the province level with Toulouse as the most successful club in European history.

17 players involved in Leinster's win on Saturday also experienced Grand Slam success with Ireland earlier this season but this win seemed just as special to those that were fortunate enough to be involved in both triumphs.

The Leinster players had circled the Champions Cup as their ultimate goal before the season and they were desperate to make amends after last season's semi-final collapse against Clermont.

Leinster claimed their redemption in Bilbao and the club's media team caught some excellent shots of Lowe crowding his teammates, Cian Healy and Andrew Porter posing for a picture with super fan Jennifer Malone and Tadhg Furlong being absolutely soaked in post-match refreshments.

Leinster are champions of Europe and they certainly celebrated like it.
