The Heineken Cup is the top European rugby club competition and it was on this day in rugby history in 2007 that the 800th match was played. The match was a Pool 3 match between Stade Francais and Ospreys with the two sides finished 22-22 at Liberty Stadium.
The home side rallied from a 19-6 deficit to take a 22-19 lead only to see a last minute penalty cost them the full points.

"It's still mathematically possible we could go through as the second runner-up but it'll be a big call for us to turn things around," admitted a downcast Ryan Jones.
The luck was not with the Ospreys as they came up short on making the elimination round as a second place finisher to Stade Francais.
The 2007 Heineken Cup was the 12 edition of the tournament with London Wasps taking the title.
