Leinster booked their place in this year’s Champions Cup final with an absolute demolition of the Scarlets at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin yesterday afternoon.
Munster and Racing will battle it out later today to find out who will face them in Bilbao, but who would Leinster prefer to face? Johnny Sexton was asked the question yesterday, and was very careful in his response.
“Do you expect me to answer that?!” Sexton said.
“I’ll just give whoever [I don’t mention] their team-talk now.
“No, look, they are both quality teams. No matter who plays against us, it’s going to be a very tough game. Racing were champions a couple of years ago in France.
“If we play against Munster it will be a very special occasion and game for all of us. Racing, that’s probably more so for me than the rest of us but it is going to be a tough game no matter who it is.”
Whoever it is, no doubt Leinster will be firm favourites after yesterday’s performance.
