It was also on BBC wales Scrum V. Not sure what has happened to Leinster over the last few year or Munster, although Munster have had a bit of a resurgence this season. Hopefully Munster will do the job and win it.

I hadn't seen the BBC RB channel before, seems they put all sorts of random stuff on it.

The game itself was absolutely outstanding.

Likewise Ted; thanks for guiding me to it. Leinster seemed to play well below their normal form, but for the Scarlets, Steff Evans was outstanding until his red card (fully deserved, despite the braying of the commentators). Talking of commentators, do you know who they were? One was very good, and the other was just awful, stating the bleedin' obvious, as in when a player ran with the ball: "He's running with the ball now".

I think the one you mention was Welsh hero Martyn Williams, great player, crap pundit!

Sorry, phone call caused premature post.

Lead commentator was Gareth Charles, pitchside bloke was Phil Steel, studio lead Ross Harries with Jonathan Davies and Sean Holley (previously Bristol head coach under AR, got sacked!)

It's basically the BBC ScrumV team.

The second semifinal is today 1800hrs, Munster v Ospreys from Thomond Park. The only legal broadcast I can find is S4C unless anyone knows better.

S4C and Sky are the only ones it appears to be on. Not sure either of the later games today will be able to top the Exeter game. Now the choice, which one to watch and which one to record?

I have decided I am going to watch the prem game because it kicks off earlier, I'll switch to the Munster game immediately afterwards. Come on MUNSTER!
