Sky Bet

Isaac Boss insists Leinster will not underestimate Stade Francais in the Amlin Challenge Cup final at the RDS.

Leinster will head into the game as big favourites, having won three Heineken Cups in the past four seasons.

And although their latest bid for European glory sees them in the second tier competition, Leinster are no less determined for success.

The competition presents Stade's only chance of silverware - and Ireland scrum-half Boss claims Leinster are well aware of the threat posed by the Top 14 side.

Focus

"They (Stade) have got a very strong team," Boss said.

"They haven't done as well in the league as they should this season, but I think they have got a real focus on this Amlin tournament.

"They have won twice away from home, beating Perpignan and Bath, so they are definitely not scared of coming here. It's going to be a lot tougher than Biarritz were (in the semi-final).

"We have put everything into this Amlin competition because that is the way the team plays. We are gunning for Stade Francais."
