Ir­ish teams were out of their depth in this year’s tour­na­ment, and the fi­nal in Grande Stade de Lyon will be con­tested by English club, Sara­cens and French out­fit, Racing 92.

None of the Ir­ish prov­inces made it as far as the quar­ter-fi­nals, where Sara­cens got the bet­ter of Northamp­ton Saints, and Racing beat Toulon.

In the last four Sara­cens de­feated Wasps 24-17, while it fin­ished 19-16 in Racing’s favour against Le­ices­ter.

If the bet­ting is any­thing to go by, the de­cider should be a close-run af­fair, as pun­ters are find­ing it dif­fi­cult to split the two.
