Comments on Clerm team from Pre match thread

Clermont team announced

Worries (were they?) about Zirakashvili, Kayser (both important for the front row) and Yahaamahina have been allayed.

Rougerie in the centre in Fofana's place ...hmmm?

He's slow and ponderous these days but a big motivating factor to the bench. Young new kid on the block and impressive since January Pineaud is on the bench. Centre is a problem and Leinster strength, .. their form is impressive and midfield attack is a big part of that, set moves and enterprise effective.

Team here

Apart from Fofana and Nakaitaci that's a STRONG team ... no complaints there

PS There are 16 french qualified players in the squad

Clermont always seem to have a lapse during a match where they seem to lose concentration, especially when they score points early.

Clermont should win v Leinster whose absences are potentially more damaging than those of Clermont?

I still think that the Leinster backs are well capable of winning the game for them .... they have shown this Season a good
capability to puncture the opposition with effective backs attack. I would certainly have picked Ringrose for the Lions.

Both Sexton and Lopez will be well targetted and the game may hinge there.

Back row in favour of Clermont and any team that can leave the likes of Lapandry on the bench has to be strong in that dept! He, imo, is one of the most unsung french players.

I go for Clerm but with some reserve,...based primarily on home draw.

15:00 on Sky

Harp on about Leinster's injuries all you like but Leinster like all the Irish provinces are used to rotating there squad so because of this then can usually cope with guys out, Clermont can underestimate Leinster's stand ins at there own peril, bare in mind JVDF is fit and is still not selected to start which shows the faith Leo has in the replacements. Leinster have numourous internationals to replace O'Brien where Clermont aren't in as good a position to replace there loses. I remember people harping on about Leinster's injuries vs Wasps and Leinster's still battered them.

Tried to express my considered opinion, that's all.

Que le meilleur gagne ie ...may the best team win

PS Clerm have injuries to international centre/wing pairing as well as Toeava

Why do they allow all those flags into the Stadium?

Clever kick and try, 7-0 Clermont

Seems a very hard surface

Unlike yesterday, Owens bins someone early on for an offence, 10-0
