    Just for form Racing Metro 92 has dropped the Metro from their team name and are now called RACING 92. Not sure it's going to help them v Leicester but the Pundits have it very close, 51% LEICESTER 49% RACING 92, not sure about that, but it could be close Leicester have a massive following and are pretty much at home or very close to it.
    Saracans v Leicester final ????

    This match is too close to call.
    Of course, I'm biased towards Tigers and want them to win, and I believe they could, but only if they get parity - or better - in the forwards,
    but if Racing get the upper hand then kickable penalties will be conceded, and with Carter and Machenaud to punish them, Tigers could be in for a tough game.
    However, it's more or less a home game, as Nottingham is just up the road, so maybe the Tigers' supporters will pull their side through to a final against Wasps!

    Tigers have sold more than half of that total despite ridiculous tickets prices. We've done our part.

    Sarries and Racing are bringing the attendances down big time.

    Pests only get big attendances when they give thousands away for free.

    Not as Gas as the Celtic teams this year.



    TBH Leicester will Struggle as they are up against Leicester City who are prob playing in the most historic home game in their history, and Paris to Nottingham isn't a simple trip on the train.

    And Saracens are never going to get a big support.

    To be fair the 2 stadiums hold about 50,000 between they at a guess ?

    Edit: Madejski stadium = 24,161
    City Ground = 30,445

    Who are these pundits? Betfair Exchange (i.e. people putting their money where their mouth is) have Racing odds on at 1.87, with Leicester dogs at 2.3. Racing looked slightly vulnerable on their travels in the pool stages, so given that it's virtually a home game for Leicester, maybe they're value at 2.3.

    The Irish teams were pretty bad too... I think that would have been a more effective route of attack Tigs.

    I think the World Cup and the Top14 TV deal killed this tournament this year, the QF's were pretty poor relative to previous years and there is little enough excitement for the semi's. Hopefully it'll pick up next year and not be totally overshadowed by Super Rugby again.

    How long ago was it that Sarries apparently used "rent-a-crowd" for a match in Leicester?

    Ireland = Celtic nation.

    And I'm sure it means loads to your Irish player to be able to be knocked out in the pool stages and be currently 7th in the pro 12 (and 4th in the Ireland club rankings).
