Where To Watch Leinster Vs Saracens? TV Details For The Champions Cup Quarter-Final

Where To Watch Leinster Vs Saracens? TV Details For The Champions Cup Quarter-Final
By Gavin Cooney Updated

After an insipid fifth-place Six Nations finish, a coterie of English internationals have a shot of redemption on Irish soil this weekend as they defend their European crown against Leinster at the Aviva. If you're not heading to Dublin 4, read on for details on where to watch Leinster vs Saracens this weekend.

Where to watch Leinster vs Saracens? 

The game is live on BT Sport 2, with kick off on Sunday at 3.30pm. Coverage begins at 3pm.

What's Leinster's post-Six Nations injury list? 

Leinster have always been the bulk suppliers to Joe Schmidt's Ireland, and the first weekend of April has usually introduced them to the second edge of that sword, as they are often depleted of a number of internationals owing to injury by the time that the Champions Cup quarter-finals come around.

This year is no different. Robbie Henshaw is definitely out, having dislocated his shoulder against Italy, as is Josh Van Der Flier having twisted his knee in Paris. Jordan Larmour is also out with a calf injury, while Dave Kearney and Noel Reid are also out having been injured in a Pro14 game in Swansea last weekend.

Here's their team in full.

Rob Kearney; Fergus McFadden, Garry Ringrose, 12. Isa Nacewa (c),  James Lowe; Johnny Sexton, Luke McGrath; Cian Healy, Seán Cronin, Tadhg Furlong; Devin Toner, James Ryan; Scott Fardy, Dan Leavy, Jordi Murphy.

Replacements:  James Tracy, Jack McGrath, Andrew Porter, Rhys Ruddock, Max Deegan, Nick McCarthy, Joey Carbery, Rory O’Loughlin.

What about Saracens? 

The champions have some issues, too. Billy Vunipola is out, and there are doubts too as to how fit Owen Farrell is, having picked up an injury in the Six Nations crescendo against Ireland. George Kruis, however, should be fit.

Are Saracens in good form?

Saracens just about squeezed past the pool stages, and results since have been mixed - three wins and three defeats in their last six games.

What's the betting? 

Leinster are rated as 3/10 favourites, with Saracens at 13/5.  The spread is 7 points.
