So if Tigers beat Wasps, a semi against Saints is on the cards!

Re: EPCR Semi finals

I only caught the last 20 minutes - so many penalties! La Rochelle are capable of playing much better than today but up against the class of Leinster, sadly they won’t get the chance. However, my money’s on them to win the Top14.

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Wiaan Liebenberg, who's playing at 6 for La Rochelle this afternoon is Hanro's elder brother.
He played for the Boks U20 in 2012, Blue Bulls between 2011/15 and Montpellier from 2015/18.

Allez, La Rochelle!!

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Completely agree. But what is utterly delightful is we are still growing under SB while Leinster are the finished article and those young Tigers will not be afraid of Leinster if we meet again. It wasn't that long ago that one turnover at Newcastle separated us from the Championship. And I still th...

Re: EPCR Semi finals

I feel slightly better about last week now. This is the best team in Europe. Completely agree. But what is utterly delightful is we are still growing under SB while Leinster are the finished article and those young Tigers will not be afraid of Leinster if we meet again. It wasn't that long ago that...

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Remember that La Rochelle beat Leinster last season and they’re in the other semifinal tomorrow. La Rochelle are in a rich vein of form and are one team that could get the better of Leinster, again.

The speed the game is being played at is amazing. Second half scrum dominance by Toulouse could be critical.
When the yellow card ends!

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Leinster are irrepressible and are worthy of their lead. It was already an uphill task for Toulouse and now even tougher after the yellow card. Difficult to see any change in the second half, but there’s always a chance.

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Robespierre I hadn’t realised that Racing had moved their game to outside Paris, does that make it advantage La Rochelle. No sign of Taufua for Lyon, I assume he is injured Yes, he’s injured and won’t play again this season. The Racing v La Rochelle match would normally have been played at the Pari...

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Leinster's team is unsurprisingly unchanged for this afternoon's match but a couple of enforced changes for Toulouse due to injuries to Maxime Médard and scrum half Baptiste Germain: Leinster: Keenan, J. O'Brien, Ringrose, Henshaw, Lowe, Sexton, Gibson-Park, Porter, Kelleher, Furlong, Molony, Ryan, ...
