Typical Leinster.  Sexton goes down screaming like a baby and they get a try from the penalty. 

He's OK now though.

A big Scottish contingent in the semis tomorrow.

Finn, Hogg, Jonny Gray, Skinner, Maitland, Duncan Taylor and Tim Swinson (!) all starting. Callum Hunter-Hill and Sam Hidalgo Clyne bench.

Sarries backs are ancient. Maitland possibly the youngest?

Owens reffing a French team is always a spectacle. 

Mon Finn!

Tim Swinson starting for Sarries, doubt he expected that when he handed his notice in at Glasgow

Classic Owens. Ignores a massive Saracens offside but when they almost score from the turnover he invents an offside at the next breakdown to give Racing the ball back. 

Blatant cheating.

In what has been a 75 minute long arm wrestle, it's a piece of utter brilliance from Finn Russell that puts Racing ahead.

Owens downgrading the penalty against the Saracens scrum to a knock on was unreal 

Saracens not as much of a force when they don't have a world class bench.

Brilliant. I fucking hate Saracens and the arrogance of Farrell and Itoje. 

Superb that Finn unlocked the door...it's vital that him and Townsend kiss and make up.

Glad Racing won there, although delighted that Swinson and Maitland played so well for Sarries.

Finn v Hoggy and Johnny final please.

I have no idea why Joe Simmonds and Henry Slade aren't the first names on the England teamsheet, but long may it continue
