Leinster rightly got very excited after the Larmour try, but Saracens took it clean from the restart, dismantled Leinster's maul and scrum and barely made a mistake after that.— Simon Hick (@hicksimon) September 19, 2020
Not @leinsterrugby day today and the end of European journey but it’s days like this that will make us stronger as we look ahead to the start of the 20/21 season in a few weeks time 💙🏉💙#LEIvSAR#HeinekenChampionsCup— Rebecca J Leggett (@rebleg18) September 19, 2020
Saracens just superb in that game. Leinster blown away at times. Honestly, after being 19 points down, the fact that Leinster made a game of it is admirable. But this one stings.— The Charge Down (@charge_down) September 19, 2020
Some positives out of this— Padraig O'Neill (@PatcheSAM) September 19, 2020
Baird looked immense when he came on.
Larmour looks more comfortable and back scoring.
Keenan’s looking sharp.
And Leavy to come back, who would have been made for this game I feel.
We’ll get that 5th star soon. #LEIvSAR
Of all the Saracens quotes this week, this one from Alex Goode on last year's final v Leinster lingered: "They knew they had been beaten by us." A lot of meaning in a simple line.— Hugh Godwin (@hughgodwin_) September 19, 2020
Saracens were great, they truly were, but Leinster cut themselves off at the ankles in the first half & that’s going to massively rankle #LEIvSAR— Kate McEvoy (@ImKateMc) September 19, 2020
My good God, I hate Saracens.— The Loose Head (@TheLooseH) September 19, 2020
(context - TLH went on in other tweets to clarify this thought, click here for the full thread. I just thought this one tweet exemplified what a lot of fans were thinking after fulltime JLP)
As a leinster supporter I really like what Saracens have done, against the world they still continue to stand and fight, truly admirable - we didn’t show up in the first half and you made us pay, go get that trophy 🏆 you deserve it #LEIvSAR— jim (@jimmurraynya1) September 19, 2020
Interesting to note that Leinster almost managed the fightback in an empty stadium. Wonder if there'd been 40,000 blue voices cheering them on, would they've had that little extra edge to complete it? #LEIvSAR #HeinekenChampionsCup— Grace O'Sullivan (@gosulli) September 19, 2020
Congrats to Saracens & their fans. Much better from Leinster in 2nd half but the scrummaging killed us. Some odd ref decisions, both sides should have had cards, but there's no denying the better team won. #LEIvSAR— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) September 19, 2020
