This has been some game. Feels like Racing will find that winning score in the next three minutes but hopefully Toulouse can hang on.

Racing scored a try on 75 minutes. Missed conversion so finished 22 21. We have a home semi-final against Toulouse.

Great result for us. No easy semis but home advantage is huge. Presume Holmes will also be banned for the game.

All came down to nakarawa giving the penalty away at lineout and officials spotting it after try was scored!

We'll need at least three match threads. It's just too exciting.

I am beyond ecstatic right now! In all my times coming home and catching a rugby game I have never been to the Aviva since it was built, just very unfortunate timing. I'll be home in 2 weeks and am overjoyed in the result today! C'mon Leinster!!!

What a game, absolute nail biter! :happy clapper:

Wouldn't think so, match is in 3 weeks, I'd say he'll get a couple of weeks ban at most

Have to say I'm surprised PP have us 11-8 favourites to win the ERC with Sarries on 13-8, Munster 5-1 and Toulouse 6-1. If you were going solely on this weekend's performances I'd have Sarries as strong favourites - thought they were pretty awesome v Glasgow.

FWIW, bookies have a 7 point spread for us v Toulouse at 11-10 while Sarries have 8 point spread v Munster at 11-10. Straight win odds are Leinster 4-11 Toulouse 9-4, Saracens 3-10 Munster 13-5

I agree. Based on this weekend, sarries look like the strong favourites. Just hoping we get passed toulouse and make it. Can't see munster raising their game enough for the semi.

Personally, I wouldn't be too unhappy about that. Ask me again after the game....
