5 for out half, and only 9 for back three?
What would the thinking be behind that?
Frawley who is listed at outhalf covers 15 too.

Jimmy O'Brien listed at centre covers 15.

Tommy O'Brien listed at centre can play both wing positions.

Sounds like Leinster are being whistled out of it? Some karma in that.

They can’t grumble. Been stuffed at the breakdown and in the scrum.

Sarries don’t have much on the bench but a 19 point lead at half time is handy!

Our front row was beaten up. Makes you wonder about the Pro 14 and physical level.
Good second half but it was over at half time.

Not really. All three for Sarries played in the World Cup Final.

You have to have a look at yourself if you want Sorries to win.

I suppose if they had to win ...

Certainly takes the shine off Leinster's season. Even their "invincible" league campaign has a sizeable asterisk against it, given they only completed two thirds of their fixtures.

Basically they came up against a French referee -- they assume the team going backwards are fouling -- the fact is if a scrum is turning it is because somebody somewhere is not pushing parallel to the ground and forward is a straight line . -- if the team is going backwards they are not pushing .

They reward-- the foul, thus ensuring every scrum will end EXACTLY THE SAME WAY IN A PENALTY , And Sarries played the referee.

Their try was basically a set play foul -- a deliberate block on a would be tackler -- based on the fact that leinster play a set defence . the block was early on a would be cover defender who was taken out early thus Leinsters out field defenders became committed to the ball carrier rather than his support.

Typical McCall develop one play and make sure it works . They did exactly the same thing at Ravenhill with inside pass at the back of the line out to the wing at speed -- one play honed to succeed.
Within this carapace of skepticism there lives an optimist

I guess I was thinking on the proviso that whoever won would then lose the semi. Heard enough about Leinster's invincibles so at least that crap has gone. Now it is anyone but Sorries, on the assumption Ulster have minimal chance of winning.

Must be the worst year ever in Europe for the "Celtic" League ... unless Ulster win it of course 😅
