    Is the lack of interest in this game due to two plastic sides being in it or this new competition being the closest thing to soccer as far as money winning that rugby has?

    Also, after not looking at all I couldn't find line ups, is DC playing because that decides who joins my treble for the weekend!!

    Glass half full warning......Clancey? What is it with the Governing body and ref appointments for these finals?

    Lacey last night was laughable but, as with most appalling refs, did not affect the result as best team won!

    Clancey is almost as bad!!

    Surely instead of handing the job around country by country, it should be the best ref's outside of the countries playing?

    Game confirmed for a **** show, then.

    Sarries are the lesser of two evils, and they've got Charlie on the bench, so I'll be backing them.

    Saw Clanceys name and went off on one!!

    I am going for Racing although if Sarries actually do play flowing rugby I might be less miserable if they were to win!

    Looking for a big game for Rococococo who has been impressive on and off the field since arriving in France!

    Personally, I'm glad it's him as some of those refs I've seen this season have not been up to it.

    Think the game will be very close and hope the pitch will be right after yesterdays match.

    Another good example of why the calls to change the "high tackle" line to below the chest are not a good idea, and at worst are dangerous.

    The French picked the guy at the lineout off the floor and turned it into a maul. Thought you had to let go...

    Shame, but Carter just didn't have much influence on the match and didn't look fully fit.
