It was fantastic to see both Leinster and Munster get over the line in their respective
Champions Cup quarter-finals last weekend, and who knows they could both be travelling to
Murrayfield in May, writes Johnny O'Connor.Leinster were brilliant in their victory over Wasps,
but I have to admit, I expected more from my former club.Wasps have accumulated a lot of
top-quality players and spent a lot of money doing that, but the last time they won the European
Cup was ten years ago.

But Leinster have been exceptional all season, and with the coaching set-up they have with Leo
Cullen, Stuart Lancaster, John Fogarty and Girvan Dempsey, there is a lot great managerial minds
there. Leinster have been a revelation with the amount of young players they have coming through.
Munster were great in their victory over Toulouse as well. They have gathered momentum and a real
sense of cohesiveness this season. They are playing with huge passion and directness and I enjoy
Munster were always about the physicality and in-your-face mentality. That changed a bit under Rob
Penney and they weren't comfortable with it. But now they are back playing the style of rugby
that won them two European Cups - they have every chance against Saracens.
