Drive up to Red Cow Luas and park there,probably around an hour all in to get to LR using luas and the dart, done it a few times and it's handy enough.

What time will you be arriving in Dublin at? You should be able to get a spot on Wellington Road off Baggot Street which would be handy enough.

Aiming to be in Dublin by 10 I suppose. Red cow might be a good shout.

Usually make a weekend of an Ireland match it'll be weird not being blind drunk in the aviva

What time should I be aiming to be at the Red Cow? I imagine half of Munster will be trying to park there so want to make sure I get a spot.

No need for the dart at all. Just get out at the point and stroll across the eastgate bridge. Only about 15 mins walk.

Yes, on street parking but free on Saturday.
It's very handy for a quick getaway after the game - up Baggot Street and into the city centre, out past Heuston and then hit the M50

Waterloo Rd has free on street parking too on Saturday just NOT on the side the bus lane is on. Right around the corner from Wellington Rd.

Park up by the pepper cannister, walk down, it's about twenty minutes, then afterwards you go straight towards the south circular and avoid the canal all the way.

I park here all the time for match days, then again I'm only coming from Portobello (with a mother in law waiting on a hip replacement, I'm not that lazy)

Anybody think this is the true final this year ? If Saracens get past Munster, they're champs; likewise if Munster get through, they'll get the trophy ? I think so.

Nope, not for Munster anyway, I'd fancy our chances more against Clermont than Leinster.

Agreed, we don't have the same depth either. An attritional game to get through before we start thinking about a final

Kleyn is a massive loss from our pack. I'd fear Leinster in a final tbh for at least another season while I'd feel if we could hang in there v clermont we could rattle them


I suspect a sarries v Leinster final with very little between them.

Quote:
- This will be Munster’s 12th European Cup semi-final - a record for the competition - while Saracens have reached the semi-finals for a sixth time and for the fifth season in a row.
- Munster will be playing their 158th tournament game - the most of any club. The two-time champions are currently level with Toulouse, who they beat in the quarter-finals, on 157 matches.
- This will be the eighth meeting between the clubs; Munster have won five of the previous seven clashes (lost two), although those two defeats against Saracens have come in their last three meetings.
- These sides have met once before in the semi-final with Munster progressing to the final in 2008 after an 18-16 victory at the Ricoh Arena before going on to lift trophy in Cardiff.
- Saracens are unbeaten in their last 16 Champions Cup games (W15, D1), and only Leinster have gone on a longer unbeaten streak in the competition (W16, D1, 2010-2012).
- Munster have won their last four Champions Cup games and have not gone on a longer run since winning six-in-a-row in 2013/14 when they last reached the semi-final.
- Chris Ashton needs just one try to become the outright top try scorer in European Cup history. He is currently level with Vincent Clerc on 36 tries.
- Munster (five) and Saracens (eight) have conceded fewer tries than any other side this season, with both teams yet to concede a first-half try.
- CJ Stander has made 114 carries this season, and no other player has made more than 100 carries so far in the competition.

- Owen Farrell (97) and Tyler Bleyendaal (94) are the top point scorers in the Champions Cup this season, and no other player has scored more than 80 points to date. Farrell was last season’s top scorer with 127 points.

well that's certainly an interesting topic. Clermont have the upperhand psychologically perhaps over Munster regards to the last recent pool confrontations, but Munster have returned to contending form since. Munster know Leinster much better than they do Clermont, so there's an element of unknown vs the Auvergne team...but maybe Munster's simplicity and smothering defense would be just what's needed to win a cup final against Clermont, where Leinster might be able to respond in kind. But I'm really not certain a full strength Clermont side would be happier news for Munster, in theory. By mid-May, if Clermont are still alive in the cup they could be pretty healthy again.

I would think however the Saracens-Munster victor will be the Cup winner. We'll know more about that in a couple days ! :proud:

I am not liking the fact neither scrum half played last weekend. Big ask for Gus and / or Griesel if they have to play in such a high profile game. Griesel has only been playing AIL and Gus was thrown out of both Leinster and Ulster academies already


:lol:
You're so full of shit. Gus was never in either academy.

So he's not even good enough to have been in an academy :uhoh: we're doomed.
