'Moonstar' (phonetic spelling) has fallen. And it wasn't even close.
Leinster challenges ASM Clermont-Ferrand tomorrow in Lyon, France.

If the point were to come up with the better challenger for Saracens, which team do you feel plays Saracens better, and for what reaaasons: Clermont, or Leinster.

Clermont are the ultimate chokers. Also, Saracens look stronger than last year.
Leinster might give Saracens a better game but it might be a season too soon if we get to the final.

Leinster. They have an international level pack and are not chokers.

Leinster are very good at home. They will show us tomorrow if they've got enough game on the road.

Can't see us doing it. Next season maybe but missing Healy, Heaslip and O'Brien is too much.
Don't think the current team are experienced enough yet to face someone like Clermont away and win.

So Leinster=Ireland national team and Clermont=chokers the reasons.

I'd say maybe Leinster are just as classic as Munster with their Rugby, they might not be as 1D on attack but are a very classic Euro Rugby outfit, and you can't beat Saracens are their own game - where Clermont might have just the x factor to threaten this Sarries team in a way no team has yet this year.

Definitely Leinster. Although, if Saracens play with the same aggression and intensity as they did yesterday, every team would struggle to beat them.
