LISTEN: The Offload Podcast - Champions Cup semi-finals
Last Updated: 03/05/18 3:01pm
This week's The Offload sees Stuart Barnes and Rupert Cox looking ahead to the mouthwatering European Cup semi-finals.
Leinster host Scarlets on Saturday while Munster travel to Bordeaux for their semi-final clash on Sunday.
The Scarlets face a tough ask against Leinster, who are in formidable form and are heavy favourites to make the final in Bilbao on May 12. However, the Scarlets will be confident they can upset the odds and under Wayne Pivac are a team who are not fazed by the big occasions.
The second semi-final looks to be a bit harder to call according to the bookies. This will be the third time these sides will meet this campaign after being drawn in the same pool. Munster won their round-two encounter 14-7 at Thomond Park while Racing edged a pulsating round-five clash at the U Arena 34-30.
Stuart Barnes and Rupert Cox will discuss all the key players and look at the tactics that will have to be deployed for victory.
Also on the agenda will be the future of Stuart Olding and Paddy Jackson now that their Ireland and Ulster contracts have been terminated.
