Huge game this weekend, could be the game of the year if both teams perform to their best. Leinster go in with a full deck to pick from. Clermont the last side to beat Leinster in Heineken cup are the other strongest team left in the competition.
After Watching Leinster beat Ulster (they actually beat the three provinces home and away) I am more sure that the winner of this game will win the Heineken Cup. If it was in the Aviva I would say Leinter would win, bit it's not and having to go to France will test Leinster to their limits. I hope it's dry in Bordeaux as that will suit Leinster better.
In Joe Schmidt I think is the best coach in Northern hemisphere Rugby who has intimate knowledge of Clermont. Clermont do have Nathan Hines who will know how the Leinster set piece works.
All in all a great game to look forward to, it could go either way but I'll go with the heart and say Leinster.
Unfortunately they way things work out, I'll be in Croke Park so the sky box will be set and the radio turned off on the way home. Here's hoping for a Lily / Leinster double this weekend.
