    4/5/2014 4:10:50 PM
  • Clermont Auvergne 19-10 Leicester
    Some good momentum from Leicester as Logovi'i Mulipola gets up a good head of steam and makes some good ground. The ball is lost in contact though and Clermont attack from the scrum. Nalaga loses the ball - much to the relief of the Leicester fans.
    4/5/2014 4:12:57 PM
  • [penalty-rugby] PENALTY! Clermont Auvergne 19-13 Leicester
    Clermont are penalised for coming in from the wrong side - this is a big one for Williams, about 53 metres but he slots it over with inches to spare! Leicester are slowly eating into this lead! 
    4/5/2014 4:17:01 PM
  • Clermont Auvergne 19-13 Leicester
    A nice break from Goneva which is carried on by Allen. This is good work from Leicester - Tuilagi tries to get down the right hand touch line but Nalaga is more than a match for him in the power stakes and bundles him into touch.
    4/5/2014 4:22:16 PM
  • [penalty-rugby] PENALTY! Clermont Auvergne 19-13 Leicester
    Clermont win the lineout and rumble up field through a very impressive driving maul. Clermont win the penalty - Rolland warns Leicester that one more infringement and they will see yellow. James steps up but hooks it left! 
    4/5/2014 4:24:30 PM
  • [penalty-rugby] PENALTY! Clermont Auvergne 19-16 Leicester
    Blaine Scully does superbly well in the air to take a Owen Williams cross kick - and wins a penalty for Leicester. Williams makes this a three point game! 
    4/5/2014 4:27:32 PM
  • Clermont Auvergne 19-16 Leicester
    With 20, minutes to go this is still anyone's game - who will hold their nerve?
    4/5/2014 4:28:59 PM
  • [betting]Anymore tries in this one? If there is, it's likely to come from the hosts, according to Sky Bet's in-play odds. Bet here.

    4/5/2014 4:31:23 PM
  • Clermont Auvergne 19-16 Leicester
    Clermont are coming hard at Leicester - urged on by their fans. Good defence from Leicester who bundle Nakaitaci into touch. A bit of shoving and pushing but nothing serious. 
    4/5/2014 4:32:05 PM
  • [yellow-card] YELLOW CARD! Clermont Auvergne 19-16 Leicester
    Alain Rolland has enough as Leicester infringe at another driving maul - Thomas Waldrom is sent to think about it for ten minutes. 
    4/5/2014 4:34:14 PM

    Parra makes it a six point lead with 15 minutes to go.

  • Clermont Auvergne 22-16 Leicester
    Clermont get the break as a knock-on from Chouly is missed by Rolland - Clermont get the scrum and put pressure on seven-man Leicester. Clermont win a penalty and find a good touch.
    4/5/2014 4:38:27 PM
  • Clermont Auvergne 22-16 Leicester
    Clermont are well in control as we head into the final ten minutes. They are looking to build pressure in Leicester's 22 and win a scrum.
    4/5/2014 4:39:49 PM
  • Clermont Auvergne 22-16 Leicester
    Clermont demolish the Leicester scrum and Chouly picks up and powers towards the line. They try and get the ball outwide but knock on. 
    4/5/2014 4:43:32 PM
  • Clermont Auvergne 22-16 Leicester
    Good work from Williams to claim an up and under from Buttin. Leicester move into Clermont's half  - Ben Youngs looking for a penalty but it won't be enough! They do win a scrum though and are back to 15 men as Waldrom is back on. 
    4/5/2014 4:47:55 PM
  • Clermont Auvergne 22-16 Leicester
    Precious seconds being eaten up here as they have to reset the scrum. That is a huge scrum from Clermont. Rolland blows up  - is it a reset or a turnover? He has a word with both front rows and says it is still Leicester's put in. 
    4/5/2014 4:49:54 PM
  • [penalty-rugby] PENALTY! Clermont Auvergne 22-16 Leicester

  • Clermont Auvergne 22-16 Leicester
    Rolland shouts 'use it or lose it' as Tigers look to Tuilagi to punch through the defence! Leicester are five metres out BUT Clermont win a penalty! So close for Leicester! The Tigers are then marched back ten yards for words with the ref. 
    4/5/2014 4:53:12 PM
  • [full-time] Clermont Auvergne 22-16 Leicester
    So close for Leicester who were so close to ending Clermont's 74 home winning streak. Clermont march on to the semis though and will wait to see if they travel to take on Ulster or Saracens.
    4/5/2014 4:54:47 PM

  • 4/5/2014 4:59:57 PM
  • [willgreenwood] It was just so close and by the finest of margins, it was finger nail stuff. If you look at the balance of the game well Clermont probably just about deserved to go through. That does not take away the fact that Leicester fought back from 16-0 down and put themselves in a position to win that game.
    Will Greenwood has high praise for Leicester
    4/5/2014 5:01:36 PM
  • [betting]Stay with us, as Ulster v Saracens is coming up. Sky Bet make the home side 4/7 favourites with the visitors rated 13/8. It should be pretty tight though, and Ulster can be backed to win by 1-5 points at 4/1. Bet here.

    4/5/2014 5:05:22 PM
  • Two down and two to go! last up today is Ulster v Saracens which should be another cracker. Don't forget we also have the final Quarter-final tomorrow when Toulon host Leinster - KO 16.30
    4/5/2014 5:19:03 PM

  • Ulster 0- 0 Saracens 
    Stand up for the Ulsterman is reverberating around the new look Ravenhill  - can Saracens silence them? 
    4/5/2014 5:25:49 PM
  • Ruan Pienaar is a wonderful player and the key to Ulster’s success - however it is almost impossible to see opportunities outwide from the No.9 position. He really needs Paddy Jackson at 10 taking a bit of responsibility off him; if that happens, then Ulster would be even more dangerous.
    Paul Wallace on the importance of Pienaar and Jackson working together
    4/5/2014 5:28:09 PM
  • So often Saracens are more than happy to be the pantomime villains and spoil the party - this is going to be a sensational game of rugby
    Ieaun Evans cannot wait for the game to kick-off
    4/5/2014 5:30:39 PM
  • Ulster 0-0 Sarcens 
    Johann Muller leads Ulster out to a huge cheers - his battle with Steve Borthwick at the lineout is going to be crucial.
    4/5/2014 5:32:37 PM
  • Ulster 0-0 Saracens 
    And we are off. Mako Vunipola gathers Ulster's kick-off, Wigglesworth kicks it down the line - Payne tries to return it but it goes straight out.
    4/5/2014 5:34:35 PM
  • Ulster 0-0 Saracens 
    [penalty-rugby] Borthwick claims the first lineout and they get a good drive going. best is penalised for being a little over-eager at the breakdown but Owen Farrell cannot silence Ravenhill...yet! 
    4/5/2014 5:37:04 PM
  • [ouch] Ulster 0-0 Saracens
    Jared Payne puts in a  huge up and under and chases after it. Alex Goode jumps up to take it and Payne takes him out midair - Good looks like in all sorts of trouble and this could be trouble for Payne.
    4/5/2014 5:39:10 PM
  • [red-card] Ulster 0-0 Saracens
    Our thoughts are all with Alex Goode who is stretchered off. After plenty of consultation with TMO Eric Gauzins, referee Jérôme Garcès sends Payne off. 
    4/5/2014 5:44:12 PM
  • Ulster 0-0 Saracens
    Saracens have the advantage and the Ravenhill faithful will have to step up to play their part if Ulster are to have any chance now.
    4/5/2014 5:46:06 PM
  • Ulster 0-0 Saracens
    Nick Williams gets a big cheer as he crashes through some Sarries tackles - but is then penalised for holding on. Pienaar is down too which does not bode well for Ulster at all. 
    4/5/2014 5:47:38 PM
  • Ulster 0-0 Saracens
    Prop James Johnston does some solid work in the maul but Chris Henry steals the ball for the home side and Jackson clears his lines. Saracens are looking to put some pace and width on this game and take the lineout quickly. 
    4/5/2014 5:49:39 PM
  • Ulster 0-0 Saracens
    A great break from Tommy Bowe who is looking very dangerous - he tries to kick the ball through but it does not quite work and Sarries counter attack. 
    4/5/2014 5:50:38 PM
  • Ulster 0-0 Saracens
    More woes for Ulster as Rory Best limps off. Rob Herring is on for him.
    4/5/2014 5:53:15 PM
  • Ulster 0-0 Saracens
    Ulster and Saracens exchange a few kicks before Luke Marshall and Tommy Bowe combine well down the right hand side. Marshall dinks the ball forward but Ashton has that covered.
    4/5/2014 5:55:44 PM
  • Ulster 0-0 Saracens
    Ruan Pienaar is in some discomfort and does not look comfortable passing the ball at all - not sure how long he will stay on. 
    4/5/2014 5:56:27 PM
  • [penalty-rugby] PENALTY! Ulster 3-0 Saracens
    A bit of good news for Ulster fans as they win a penalty at the breakdown. Pienaar shrugs off his discomfort to give the home side the lead. 
    4/5/2014 5:58:04 PM
  • Ulster 3-0 Saracens
    From the kick-off Ulster win another penalty after Jacques Burger is pinged for not rolling away at the tackle. 
    4/5/2014 5:59:44 PM
  • [penalty-rugby] PENALTY! Ulster 3-0 Saracens 
    From the lineout Ulster win another penalty - Borthwick is pretty annoyed about it as the two packs have a bit of afters. Nothing too serious though. Pienaar cannot make it 6-0.
    4/5/2014 6:01:38 PM
  • Ulster 3-0 Saracens
    Andrew Trimble gets a hand to a huge hanging kick - Nick Williams goes charging down the line and looks to offload to Pienaar but the No.9 knocks on - another chance gone begging for Ulster.
    4/5/2014 6:02:56 PM
  • Ulster 3-0 Saracens
    Sarries are under huge pressure at the scrum but great work from Billy Vunipola who picks up from the base and makes some great ground.
