Needed to give that early or take the hit.

Still not instinctive, could be costly.

At least it won't be a complete embarrassment if we lose now. But we really should be ahead by now.

Sarries leaving the door open for Leinster if they can get down the other end of the field.

Sarries have won the last two restarts which have ben vital.

We just weren’t quite good enough. At least we came back. Do or die now

Itoje caught Ringrose around the neck, but it was missed. Leinster then pass into touch on the next phase. Harsh.

Leinster would have had some chance but impossible with how the scrum has gone. 7 scrum pens for Saracens.

Leinster will kick themselves

Much the better side just never turned up for the first 40

Some criminal selection decisions though.

Would imagine that’s more or less the end of the line for Cronin/Toner

Leinsters setpiece and work under the highball has been a huge weakness since the restart.

What was the penalty count- I've not seen Leinster give away so many for a long time.

Give Sarries credit. 12 internationals missing and still winning an away quarter against the best side in Europe

Yes

Luke mcgrath didn't help

Or that none of the team were at the pitch of the match in the first half

Leinster did brilliantly to turn it into a one score game with their good 20 min after the half. The quarter aside, Saracens were just so much better.

Need to learn the lessons we refuse to learn

Sexton to pasture
Toner to pasture
Larmour is not a fullback
Scum needs serious work
Lineout maul woeful and yet we kept using it.

Not convinced it would have made a difference. We needed to score when we were down there 10 minutes ago. We'd ran out of ideas.

Actually covid won it for them. Top seed in the pools and we get the other best team, then we effectively lose home advantage.
