    Ben Arous, Chat, Gomes Sa, Ryan, Nakarawa, Lauret, Le Roux, Nyanga

    Munster aim to reach their first European final since their victory against Toulouse in 2008. Racing 92 look to claim their first European title, their best achievement having been losing finalists in 2016. We return to the scene of one of their greatest European matches ever: Clermont vs Leinster in 2012. Let's hope for a similar classic with an Irish victory!

    Munster by 3 for me. Racing on their day are super but those days aren't as consistent as they would like. Could see it following the Toulon game where munster hang in and begin to grind them down

    I'm not really sure Munster did grind Toulon down tbh. They scored two of the most non-reproducible tries you'll see in the competition. Both very well taken obviously but both a little bit freakish.

    Having said that I think they'll win today. The team has something about it at the moment, lot of doggedness, the injuries haven't halted them at all, Murray is just so good that he can elevate the team a bit by himself too. I think we get carried away rating our own players but he must be in the conversation for best player in the world at the current moment.

    Yeah probably right. Was more relating it to clinging in when they could have been out of sight early on. Doggedness is the right word for it

    Hoping it doesnt come to this, but how long generally before the games are on YouTube?

    Edit: Nevermind, got eirsport working ok.

    Just thinking back to the away match at the U Arena and how it was really imo, one that got away from Munster. If Munster can eliminate the errors that held them back in that match, I think they can win this.

    The French directors are ruining things with their replays.

    can you PM a stream please.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,261 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Munster are losing the collisions

    Racing try came from the speed of ball they're getting.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,945 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Way too easy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,336 ✭✭✭✭ DDC1990


    Awful start. Racing look physically superior.

    Easy missed tackle from Wooton, going high on Tomas.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,468 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Very poor by wooton, racing have had the far better start


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,261 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Keatley you bottler


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,945 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Jesus, Keatley


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,336 ✭✭✭✭ DDC1990


    Keatley. That is unforgivable after a great win from CJ.

    Absolutely no need to keatley to try and stick it to the corner flag.
