Will Carling, Matt Dawson and Scott Quinnell digest the Heineken Cup semifinals in the fifth and final edition of The Heineken® Rugby Show.

The former England internationals, Carling and Dawson, as well as British and Irish Lions legend Quinnell, looked at how Toulon and Saracens reached the Heineken Cup showpiece.

Saracens booked their place in the Final at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff thanks to an emphatic 46-6 victory over Top 14 side and 2013 runners-up Clermont Auvergne.

Chris Ashton and Owen Farrell starred in the 40-point victory to help the London-based side beat Carling's tip and reach their first-ever Heineken Cup final.

In last Sunday's other semifinal, England legend and Toulon captain Jonny Wilkinson kicked 21 points as the defending champions were 24-16 winners against plucky Munster in France.

Inevitably, Carling, Dawson and Quinnell were soon discussing the ERC European player of the year award, with chief protagonists of the semifinals - Ashton, Farrell and Wilkinson - at the forefront of the trio's thinking.

You can see who the trio picked to win the Heineken Cup Final in the latest instalment of the The Heineken® Rugby Show.
