Munster And Sarries Into Euro Semi-Finals

Munster And Sarries Into Euro Semi-Finals

Munster beat Edinburgh 17-13 as Saracens scored seven tries in downing Glasgow 56-27 in the European Champions Cup quarter-finals.

Munster went into the last-eight clash at Murrayfield as strong favourites but trailed 10-7 at the break after Chris Dean’s converted try and a Jaco van der Walt penalty for the hosts. Keith Earls had given the Irish an early lead and it was the man from Limerick who produced the goods again with 10 minutes remaining.

The Ireland international crossed in the corner and all Edinburgh had to show for their second-half efforts was a Van der Walt penalty.

Tyler Bleyendaal landed a couple of three-pointers for Munster but it was Earls’ double that was the difference.

Saracens will also be in the hat for the semi-finals after hammering Warriors.

Liam Williams and David Strettle both scored twice for the English club, while Brad Barritt, Jamie George and Nick Tompkins also got on the scoresheet.

Glasgow scored three tries through Ali Price, George Horne and Matt Fagerson but were very much second best throughout the contest.
