England fly-half Owen Farrell kicked seven penalties as the nine-year wait for an English winner of the tournament came to an end with Saracens becoming the first team to complete an unbeaten European campaign.They face Leicester in the Aviva Premiership semi-finals on Saturday and Vunipola has already turned his mind to the defence of their domestic crown. Its awesome, were in that club now. Weve managed to pull it off and win this trophy. Its a massive honour, Vunipola told Sky Sports.

Kings of Europe Owen Farrell kicked seven penalties as Saracens beat Racing 92 21-9 to lift the Champions Cup trophy We started on this journey about six years ago - we have spoken about pounding the rock and the rock broke today. Through the week we have felt our belief growing and I could not be more proud to lead this group of men.This is big. It is everything that we have wanted over the last six years so I think everyone has full rein to enjoy this. We know to back up titles that you have to be even better the year after. There are going to be a pack of teams wanting to chase us down but we dont want this to be a short term of success, we have a group of players who are hungry and hopefully we can stay in the finals for years to come.You have to enjoy the moment, you work all year for times like this but obviously we can do something special over the next few weeks.We have a hungry Leicester side at alliance Park but right now we will enjoy being European Champions.

"Hes certainly got a history and knowledge and a high baseball IQ," general manager Terry Ryan said.   .J. -- While Martin Brodeur wasnt willing to say he stole one for the New Jersey Devils against the Columbus Blue Jackets, almost everyone else was.NEW YORK -- Michael Weiner, the plain-speaking, ever-positive labour lawyer who took over as head of the powerful baseball players union four years ago and smoothed its perennially contentious relationship with management, died Thursday, 15 months after announcing he had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. He was 51. The Major League Baseball Players Association said Weiner died at his home in Mansfield Township, N.J. "We wouldnt be where we are today without his expertise," San Francisco Giants pitcher Jeremy Affleldt said in a text to The Associated Press. "We will all feel this loss of such a great man." As Weiners health deteriorated this summer, a succession plan was put in place. Former big league All-Star Tony Clark took over Thursday as acting executive director and is to be approved as Weiners successor when the unions board meets from Dec. 2-5 at La Jolla, Calif. "Words cannot describe the love and affection that the players have for Michael, nor can they describe the level of sadness we feel today," Clark said in a statement. "Not only has the game lost one of its most important and influential leaders in this generation, all involved in the game have lost a true friend." At Weiners last public speaking engagement, a 25-minute meeting with baseball writers on the day of the All-Star game in July, he was confined to a wheelchair and unable to move his right side. Yet, he wanted to respond to questions about his illness and issues in the game, and did so with the grace and humour he was known for throughout his life. "I dont know if I look at things differently. Maybe they just became more important to me and more conscious to me going forward," he said. "As corny as this sounds, I get up in the morning and I feel Im going to live each day as it comes. I dont take any day for granted. I dont take the next morning for granted. What I look for each day is beauty, meaning and joy, and if I can find beauty, meaning and joy, thats a good day." Weiner first experienced weakness and tingling on his right side in July 2012 and was diagnosed with a glioma the following month. By June 2013, he had experienced a rapid increase in symptoms. As he sat in a wheelchair in foul territory at Citi Field the following month before the All-Star game, players lined up to speak with him. His voice had gotten raspy by early August, when he responded on behalf of the union to **** suspensions handed down to Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun and other players. "Michael is a tremendous person. Thats why everybody loves him," New York Yankees reliever Mariano Rivera said Thursday before Weiners death was announced. "He can relate with every player and had time to talk with every player." Known for wearing blue jeans and Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers to work, Weiners easygoing manner with players was a change from former head Donald Fehrs more lawyerly approach. His style connected both with players and the students he taught during Sunday school at his synagogue. "Lost a great friend today," Arizona reliever Brad Ziegler tweeted. "One of the best leaders & men I knew. Prayers for his family." Weiner was hired by the union as a staff attorney in 1988 and wound up succeeding Fehr in December 2009. Weiner became just the fourth head of the organization since 1966. A longtime New Jersey resident and a graduate of Williams College and Harvard Law School, Weiner clerked for U.S. District Judge H. Lee Sarokin in Newark before joining the players association. Once at the union, he became a key figure in the lengthy process to parse the $280 million collusion settlement among individual players.dddddddddddd Weiner also was a junior lawyer during the 7 1/2-month players strike in 1994-95 strike and the negotiations that finally led to a new labour agreement in March 1997. "I think that helped some people on the owners side to finally accept that the union was a fixture and the union was an entity they were going to have to deal with," he said. "There was never a chance for anything to settle in until we got through collusion, and really until then we got through the bargaining in 94 and 95." Following eight work stoppages in a 23-year span, baseball has since negotiated three straight labour deals without interruption. Weiner headed talks for the last deal, in November 2011, which instituted a series of significant changes that included restraints on signing bonuses for amateur players and increased the number of free agents able to switch teams without requiring the loss of draft picks as compensation. "It took a while for the owners to appreciate that the union is not only here to stay, but that the union and its members can contribute positively to a discussion about the game -- about its economics, about the nature of the competition, about how its marketed in every way," he said. In addition to the labour contract, he headed the legal team that in 2012 convinced an arbitrator to overturn a 50-game suspension imposed on Braun, the Milwaukee outfielder who was the previous years NL MVP. The union argued his urine sample had not been handled properly. Last summer Braun agreed to accept a 65-game suspension for his activities relating to the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic and his public statements. Following a line of leaders that began with Marvin Miller and went on to include the short reign of Kenneth Moffett and the long tenure of Fehr, Weiner was exceedingly conscious of the unions history and traditions of player involvement. He appeared with Fehr and the then 95-year-old Miller at a 2012 discussion at New York Universitys School of Law marking the 40th anniversary of the first baseball strike and the rise of the union. Fehr, now the head of the NHLPA, released a statement on Thursday night to lament Weiners passing. "My wife Stephanie and I are enormously saddened to learn of Mike Weiners passing today, and our thoughts go out to Diane and their three daughters," said Fehr in the statement. "Mike was an extraordinary individual in so many ways: as a loving husband and father, as an exceptional union leader and lawyer, and as a great friend to so many. He was an indispensible part of the MLBPA staff for more than two decades, and was the right man to lead the union. This is a great loss, for his family, for his friends, for the players, and for everyone who crossed his path. His hair nearly gone from his treatment, Weiner returned to NYU in January for a memorial celebrating the life of Miller, who died two months earlier. He humbly referred to "our little sport of baseball." "He was not just too young to die. He was too good and decent, too kind and brilliant," said Gene Orza, the unions former chief operating officer. "I never knew anyone finer." Said NFL players union executive director DeMaurice Smith: "The family of Michael Weiner and the community of athletes worldwide have lost a leader. I will miss my friend." Weiner is survived by his wife, the former Diane Margolin, and daughters Margie, Grace and Sally.                           ' ' '
