Clermont v Racing

What a contrast from the 1st half of the previous game broadcast on BT Sport. What's also noticeable is the absence of BT commentators saying "Apologies for any bad language you may have heard through the referee's microphone" unless of course you're fluent in French. Then again, Finn Russell's still on the pitch! I also hope that Roman Poite's cough is due to his exertions in that half and nothing more serious.

Haven't heard any French players say 'sacre bleu' or 'merd' yet.

Finn Russell's passing is a joy compared to what we usually get.

But, yeah, a change from bish-bosh rugby all round.

It made me realise that their 'punishment' has actually done them even more of a favour because they know they can rest the big guns for Europe and it won't affect them in the league. Might be obvious but I didn't think of it till today.

Itíll be interesting to see Sarries approach to team selection in the final two rounds of the premiership, assuming the prevail against Racing next weekend. They play Worcester in round 21 who donít have much to play for other than cementing their position above us in the league, but their final round match against Bath could be crucial for Bathís chances of a top four place. I suspect there are several people on this message board who would be in a bit of a quandary in deciding who to back in that match!

I will always want Sarries to lose no matter how good they are or were. Nothing to do with cheating just an irrational hatred. Maybe it's cause I used to have to visit that crappy Watford stadium.

Sarries v Leinster was a great game. Sarries are probably my "second favourite" team and there was a certain pleasure in watching Leinster come apart once faced with a decent opposition rather than the glorified training runs they've had in the Pro 14 this season.

Very much the same feeling here. I also have it with Wasps - must be from having to endure the 'wasps, Wasps, wasps' chant so many times.

Would normally want Sarries to lose but 3/1 was odds I had to take and another crafty tenner on Racing too.(Sm128)

I'm now thinking a Sarries v Toulouse final could be on the cards but venue has not yet been announced.

I'm now thinking Racing v Toulouse final. Will probably have to revise that in a couple of hours.

I'm now thinking I'm not very good at predictions. Just as well I'm not a betting man. Should be a cracking final. Oh, there i go again with a prediction!

Lost on Saracens but won it back on Exeter.
Definitely a good battle coming in the final(Sm63)
