Wounded champions will look to defy odds again at Racing 92 and are a team at its most dangerous when backed into a corner
A dejected Leinster supporter was to the point a few hours after his side’s Champions Cup quarter-final defeat to the holders. “I don’t like Saracens, the way they play or the manner in which they conduct themselves,” he said. “But hats off to them: much as I do not like to admit it, that was one of the best performances I have ever seen in any sport.”
Saracens may have won the Champions Cup in three of the last four seasons, beating Saturday’s semi-final opponents Racing 92 in Lyon four years ago to take home the trophy for the first time, but they were rank outsiders in Dublin having seen 10 players either leave or go out on loan during lockdown and lost Owen Farrell to suspension.
