Jeez is Murrays injury that bad? Be very tough this one for Munster. Funnily I think if they win so will Leinster. And if Munster lose so will Leinster ( and the final will be played in front of a half empty Murrayfield). So-come on Munster!

I'm pretty sure he's in the 'questionable' category too, no?

Any idea how many tickets have been sold for Saturday? Would it be close to a sellout?

According to the Munster Rugby website, they've sold/distributed the 37,000 allocation they asked for. A couple public allocation tickets pop up on ticketmaster every now and then still.
I'd say if its not sold out it will dam near be.

Update on Murray

MUNSTER DIRECTOR OF rugby Rassie Erasmus said he doesn’t think Conor Murray’s frustrating shoulder injury will end his season and force him to miss the Lions tour to New Zealand.
Erasmus all but ruled the scrum-half out of Munster’s Champions Cup semi-final against Saracens on Saturday in Dublin, which takes place more than six weeks after Murray first suffered a ‘stinger’ during Ireland’s Six Nations defeat to Wales.

No pressure on Munster for this one, Saracens are big favourites. Funny if it was in Thomond Munster should edge it but because it's in Lansdowne Saracens are expected to win with a bit to spare!

I'm liking the way it's setting up.

Saracens are 4/6 on Betfair with the spread being only 2 points so the bookies don't have them all that far in front. That might change as the week progresses and we get more info on injuries. Either way, I can't wait for this one!!
