Saracens & Racing 92 into Champions Cup Final

Saracens have beaten Wasps and will progress to European Champions Cup final with Racing into their first top-tier European final in Lyon on May 14.

"It's an amazing achievement. This competition was a big part of the reason I wanted to come and play in France. We knew it would come down to the last minute because Leicester are a quality side, very fit," commented Racing 92 fly-half Dan Carter.

Looking back on the game, Saracens director of Rugby Mark McCall said: "Our scrum was dominant both on our put-in but also when they had the ball, and our defensive line-out was outstanding.

"There were times when we could have got a bit frustrated, but we were really composed and able to combine that with unbelievable energy and physicality."
