Discussion in 'European Champions & Challenge Cup' started by Maverick1987, May 14, 2016.
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!!

8 South Africans (players who originate from South Africa) are represented in this match.
as much as id like sarries to win, i think racing will be too much for them
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?
Nigel Owen is the referee
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.
Nige bloody loves the sound of his own voice
And making wrong TMO calls...
This i swear he practises his remarks in the mirror for about a week before a game.
Bloody rain......that has made life much more difficult and could spoil this as a game.
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.
Fair play they handled Brits' KO well there
The French picked the guy at the lineout off the floor and turned it into a maul. Thought you had to let go...
Wigglesworth with a terrible kick there, rescued by Goode.
Itoje is a monster!
British Irish Lions
Shame, but Carter just didn't have much influence on the match and didn't look fully fit.
Itoje causing havoc once again
