"It was a real arm wrestle".
"Having Dan Carter on your bench says it all", said Cullen, who shares the management duties with former England head coach Stuart Lancaster.
"I thought Racing were outstanding today, really put pressure on us at the breakdown".
"We know we can get better and we feel that we need to get better tomorrow in a lot of areas", he said.
Well, Leinster and Racing 92 share between them the five nominees for this year's European Player of the Year. The 21-year-old lock forward made countless effective bursts, testing the French side's tacklers. "The atmosphere was electric and when we ran out to see all the colour, the flags waving, and the noise was off the charts so it was a very special". "He is a different level for me".
Leinster have looked convincing throughout the entire campaign and are in Spain, along with KCLR's Brendan Hennessy and Mick Quinn, for today's big final. Remi Tales had an attempt at a drop goal as the clock passed the 80 minute mark, but to no avail.
A pre-match hamstring injury spoiled Carter's European swansong, with Racing's injury list already including talismanic skipper Maxime Machenaud (knee) and Dimitri Szarzewski (bicep).
The normally free-flowing Irish side, who had scored 31 tries in eight games in the competition, were being kept at bay.
But Sexton responded with a penalty and Iribaren's fourth penalty was cancelled out by Nacewa's boot.
Iribaren and Sexton would exchange penalties again with the sides going in tying 6 points apiece.
Another Racing offside infringement was sanctioned by Wayne Barnes and winger Nacewa coolly slotted home the winning kick one minute from time.
