And now all eyes turn to the Scarlets. Can’t wait.

I've got a new twitter rule. Anyone who tags a player and gives them grief. Gets blocked. You wouldn't slag off a player to their face. So don't do it on here.

No Farrell, Kruis, Skelton, Earl, Isiekwe, Malins, Lamositele, Tompkins or Williams...

Leicester beating Stade in the 01 final was incredible; Wasps knocking Munster out In Dublin remarkable; Bath beating Brive in Bordeaux unfathomable; but maybe today Saracens have topped the lot.

Another worrying outing for Irish rugby against English opposition. Leinster's season has been remarkable, their second-half was spirited but the step up from interpros to excellence was too much Considering their absentee list from last year's final, Saracens were amazing

Trying so hard to avoid finding out what happened in the time trial at Le Tour today. I sense it was extraordinary, but I really don’t want to hear before the 7pm highlights show. Like that episode of the Likely Lads.

Still a fair way to go for Saracens in Champs Cup, but Lions captaincy probably done & dusted now. Leinster not tested for too long. Now for Clermont v Racing, betting heavy now on two semi-finalists from each of Top 14 and Prem

Really pleased for the @Saracens supporters I met after the European Cup game against Cardiff Blues at the Arms Park a year or so ago. Some of the friendliest fans I have come across in the job. Really good people. Enjoy.

80 | Wow.

Phenomenal from the boys. We're through to the semis!

🔵 17 ⚫️ 25

Maro Itoje really is an extraordinary rugby player. Lions captain. No debate required

They’ve been through the wringer, lost so many players and still nobody can break @Saracens spirit, not even @leinsterrugby. Relegated from the Premiership and @ChampionsCup winners in the same season?

Rank that with the greatest English wins in the European Cup. Extraordinary.

Probably the greatest #Saracens afternoon ever. But *how* embarrassing for #Leinster. This is good, bad and probably everything else in between for the game itself. #ChampionsCup #rugby

Rugby really is a great sport. That was just a fantastic game to watch. Rhodes, Itoje and George outstanding for Saracens, lovely lines from Alex Goode and Jordan Larmour for tries, while Ryan Baird is a huge talent, but Vincent Koch the man for me.

Leicester vs Castres is OFF after three of the French club's playing group, and one staff member, test positive for Covid-19 pre-departure. Castres have forfeited the game so Leicester go through to Challenge Cup semi-final

So if it’s Saracens and Exeter in the final.......

Full-time: Leinster 17, Saracens 25. What a game! The stuff of champions from Sarries. A big effort from Leinster in the second half, but too much of a mountain to climb. The scrum the key area, with Saracens winning seven penalties there.
