All-Ireland Champions Cup final dream alive as Leinster and Munster await semi venues

Here’s how tomorrow’s quarter-finals will impact the venues for Ireland’s remaining provinces.

MUNSTER WILL TAKE a Champions Cup semi-final to the Aviva Stadium in a fortnight’s time if reigning champions Saracens manage to beat Glasgow Warriors tomorrow to join them in the last four.

The southern province thrashed Toulouse 41 – 16 in Thomond Park after Leinster earlier defeated Wasps to book a trip to France.

With French television audiences usually preferring a Sunday fixture, Leinster are likely to play either Clermont (in Lyon) or Toulon (in Nice) on Sunday 23 April, with Munster’s match likely to go on the Saturday.
