I'm not saying otherwise. Just pointing out it is the kind of thing that Kiwis, both at Test and club level, get away with that no one else does.

Scott Spedding, one of far too many project players in France nowadays, misses a decisive penalty.

Sexton scores a penalty. 27-22 with just a minute to go.

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


Sorry Cathalsmart ...I think Leinster suffered from back row absence, ...with more ball and space Leinster could well have won it well.

They were beaten at forward and breakdown.

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

I think Sarries will win, how many pts do you forecast for the annihalation? ;)

Clerm 9/10 were fundamental to the clerm win as well as their firwards denying enough space for Leinster to exercise their supremacy there...

Clermont deserved it and won a brilliant match. Final could be fanatastic if Clermont manage to turn up. Lyon is virtually home from from home for them but Edingburgh....mmmm?

I would think a similar score to yesterday in Dublin, which was flattered by Munster's last minute try.
