    Tekori playing openside is pretty funny,
    Not exactly in the mold is he?

    Toulouse looking a little hesitant.

    Must be tough for them.
    Go with the exciting rugby that they have been playing but against Leinster run the risk of playing into their hands.
    Or try and match Leinsters boring rugby style.

    Some kick for someone who just turned around. Mad effort as well.

    Tigs has forgotten what real rugby is

    Toulouse player clearly waving to his parents in the stand there.

    FFS game has lost all credibility already.

    That should be a penalty try, he was 100% going to score that if not for the infringement (in a penalty try infringement you act as if the infringing player isn't there so it was a simple flop over the line)

    That was a blocking line.

    Leinster deserve the win so far.
    Toulouse lacking the experience

    Lacking the attack,

    They have two plays:
    1) Big carriers
    2) Hope Kolbe can make something from nothing

    Not sure how 1 was legal, player clearly changes his bind.

    Pretty sure Leinster just got away with dumping a player on his head and it isn't even looked at...

    Pretty comfortable win for Leinster

    No idea what's gonna happen in the final, neither side really had to hit their stride in the semis so it's tough to judge their relative form.
    Toulouse are better than Munster but Toulouse looked terrible today - did Leinster make them or were they just a bit naff?

    Can't argue that the two teams in the final aren't the top 2 in Europe, though.
