      It was just a candle lighting when Rob ran for an extinguisher, his positioning was excellent and he made a great effort to tackle the flames upon his return, but uncharacteristically his tackling wasn’t successful.

        Allegedly his flapping at the tackle only fanned the flames
        "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

        Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

            ROG was very dismissive of them during the week, he reckons they might have the attitude of being in bonus territory already. Leinster are not the team they were at the start of the campaign, and Toulouse have improved no end, but teams don’t win away semis and French teams don’t win away games so i reckon Leinster will scrape through.

              This is not accurate. There is an undoubted bias against "away QFists" but my understanding is its more even at SF's. Looks like 1 in 3 SF are won by the away team.

                Of course it’s not accurate if you want to be pedantic and statistical about it, but generally teams don’t win away semis.

                  Semi finals were meant to be in neutral away venues. Admittedly they have changed the rules to keep Lonzaretti happy, but Leinster in LR is not neutral. Imho, they should play their semi finals in Thomond or Ravenhill.

                      Leinster shouldnt be in Limerick/Ravenhill. It would be crazy at every level to move any semi final theyd be involved in to stadiums 25000 smaller

                        Only 50% Kearnage. They’re doomed.

                        Not starting either Fardy or JGP. Interesting. Would have Fardy ahead of Ruddock.

                          It’s worse than that, we’re down to 33% Kearnage. JGP is injured and Fardy gives you second row cover on the bench if you need to freshen it up. Maloney and Mick Kearny out injured and we have no other second rows with Nagle up north.

                          Best of luck tomorrow...... can’t have you lot rocking up to the RDS with 2 weeks rest while our lads are knackered from a big final. We did it last year mind you.

                          Seriously though, give Saracns a hiding and with a bit of luck we will all have a great day out in Newcastle.

                            “Were” is the key word there chief, the rules have changed.

                              Welsh twitter is rarely right about anything but on this issue it is. Why should Leinster supporters not have to travel and everyone else does for a home semi final? Saracens have to travel two hours up the road, on an Easter weekend when the trains aren’t working etc why shouldn’t Leinster? It makes the tournament look like a fiddle.
