Fullback Joe Pietersen eaten alive by prop Pek Cowan

As a prop myself, love to see the fairies out the back getting put in their place.

Leinster hold out against Clermont to reach another Heineken Cup final

you had it right, it was for not releasing the ball. Sean O'Brien, the guy who won the penalty, was not the tackler and got his hands on the ball before a ruck was formed, the guy on the ground did not release which lead to the penalty.

that's how i saw it anyway, i'm sure a Clermont fan will see it completely differently!

Leinster hold out against Clermont to reach another Heineken Cup final

Exciting match, that's what the HC is all about. Clermont fans were amazing before during and after the match, the best fans in the world imo.
trying to keep my opinion unbiased, and after watching the game again i don't think that Barnes was as bad as most people seem to think he was. ESPN have the penalty count even at 14 each and both sides proboably should have gotten yellow cards (Darcy using his feet and Rougerie killing leinster ball metres out from the line in the first half).
Clermont were definitely dominant in the scrums but scrum dominance does not automatically equal penalties, leinster have to actually do something wrong and i think the leinster pack did well to limit them.
Rob kearney was immense again, and it was good to see Sean O'Brien playing his best game for a while. On the Clermont side Zirickashvili was incredible, Hines was great as usual and that guy who came on for Byrne i think had a good game too.
so, great game, great atmosphere, great result!

i'm not outraged but your right on that one, if it was so good fofana would not have made it over the line! few less bicep curls in the gym and he may have gotten it :)

Darren Cave & Johan Muller hits plus highlights of first Heineken Cup semi final

i agree with you mostly, i don't think i made my point very well..... my point was that leinster also had players missing whereas ulster2012 implied an under strength ulster faced a full strength leinster which was not the case, plus it was in ravenhill. Ferris is definitely Ireland best 6 but both O'Brien and Darcy had their best games for a while against Clermont i thought. Jennings does usually start, he started in the biggest game of the season only a few days ago.

yes but Leinster were without Nacewa, Heaslip, Darcy and Jennings. granted leinsters squad can cope better but add on top of that it is now in a neutral venue so should be close, can't wait! really looking forward to the clash of O'Brien and Ferris, collisions between those two will measure on the Richter scale.
