That's what the commentators are saying in Toulouse Bath game. At 17-3 up if they start kicking penalties rather than going to the corner should opportunity arise.
Aye. They'll also know Leinster are winning comfortably so there's no point in trying to win the group.
Dangerous game to play though, potentially letting Bath into the game, but if there is anyone would do it it's the French.

I suppose worst case they lose and go to Saracens rather than Leinster.

They've empied their bench. Looks like they're happy with things as they are.

Poor from Leinster allowing Wasps to score. Some of their forwards never came out in the second half.

Watching the game and fecked if I know what they are trying to do.

They did have a kickable penalty on the 10 metre line which would have made sense to take and put them three scores clear but went to the corner.

Agree Shan, licking my lips at the prospect of playing Leinster in QF.

Rumours that Racing 92 are going to re-sign Dan Carter for rest of season to cover Pat Lambie’s enforced retirement.

I heard both of them.

The ground holds 52,405,
Wonder if they'll beat the Leinster Ulster q/f attendance?

yeah I think 40k tickets had been sold going into this weekend, I’d say the organisers are glad Leinster got through as the rest will probably get swept up now!

I have to say that despite their rubbish support, flagrant breaching of the salary cap (may bite them on the ass this year by the sound of things), and precarious financing - and of course robbing us a few years ago - I actually quite like Sarries. Brilliant tight-knit squad, some outstanding individuals (Farrell and Billy Vunipola are 2 of my favourite players), but most of all I find it hard not to respect a team that is so well coached (by an Ulsterman no less). Everyone knows exactly what they’re doing at all times.

It’ll be a class final, Sarries are slight favourites, and that’s probably about right - I think Leinster were good today, but will need a bit more rust off Sexton, SOB and Toner to live with them.

Sarries should be too strong.
I know they are both good well drilled sides but completely uninspired or thrilled by either side.
No imagination, just systems and work rate apart from James Lowe and they don't even want to pick him!
Think Beauden Barrett is probably the only other player that gets me out of my chair any more.
Since Folau went rogue at any rate.

If Leinster can protect Sexton and keep possession inside the Saracens half there are a couple of ejits on the Saracens side to gift penalties -- They are prone to play a man without the ball because they a frequently offside and/or come in from the side when contesting a ruck . The converse is that leinster play a similiar game and Farrell is one of those players forwards delight in trying to hit -- the desire draws you offside.

Of course if you're willing to sacrifice your head run upright at Farrell,in the hope that the referee has the guts to red card him.

I don't foresee a high scoring final with a ball going left to right and back again to be honest -- a semi-bore fest with the winner in doubt for at least 60 minutes.
Within this carapace of skepticism there lives an optimist
