Do the French resources know no bounds? Enough depth to enter two teams at La Rochelle!

Not that it matters who the victims are - Sorry, Quins fans but I fear your team are up against it a little. Clermont are looking a bit scary at the moment.

Maitland drops out of the Sarries line up during the warm up.

Strettle comes in and Lewington onto the bench.

That is hardly going to weaken them!

Not a great crowd at the Ricoh and you would have to say a lot more of them are from Munster. It is hardly going to seem like a home semi for Sarries!

Its been all Sarries, but the Munster defence, as you would imagine, is doing some heroic stuff

Another penalty though

6-3 Sarries

Bleyendal gets one back for Munster

9-6 Sarries

If Munster go in at HT only 3 points down, they will consider this a good half

Munster doing what we should’ve done vs the bad guys From Dodgeball. They’ve really fronted up so far.

O'Mahoney lucky not to get a yellow for the deliberate knock on, seen them given for less

Farrell kicks the goal

12-9 at HT

Munster staying in the game, which is what you have to do to beat Sarries

It is a hot day though and a very physical game, surely the defence on either side will wilt at some stage in the second half.

Still Sarries will feel they should be further ahead and the doubts may start to nag.

This is a real full on cup tie, still anyones game

Not to sure

Extra time first up I would imagine, then probably tries scored

Ultimately a kicking contest, which would be a laugh!

Saracens are brutal, they are not an easy club to like, but you can't argue with what they do on the pitch.

Austin Healey gives MoM to BV

That is complete nonsense, no-where near it, that is a political call by our favourite political commentator

32-16 Sarries

A bit of a spanking really, a lot more one sided than the score suggests

Munster are all heart but lack the class, they just don't have the game breaking players that you need to win these kind of games

MoTM is contractually obliged to speak to interviewers, reckon Healy was being a bit of cheeky sod.  The bloke is a WUM.

That is exactly what he was doing!

Spencer or Rhodes were MoM for me

Most commentators would have given it to Farrell for his kicking!
