Euro Cup semifinal dates confirmed


Title-holders Saracens, also the reigning English champions, will face Irish province Munster at Dublin's Lansdowne Road on Saturday, April 22.

The second semifinal will see France's Clermont take on Munster's arch Irish rivals Leinster in Lyon a day later (Sunday, April 23).

The draw for both last four clashes was known after the conclusion of Sunday's quarterfinals but European Professional Cup Rugby officials had to consult with tournament broadcasters before confirming the dates.

London club Saracens beat Glasgow 38-13 this past Sunday, with Clermont defeating Toulon 29-9 in an all-French quarterfinal.

This past Saturday saw Pro12 table-toppers Leinster overpower English Premiership leaders Wasps 32-17 at Lansdowne Road, with Munster overwhelming French giants Toulouse 41-16 in Limerick.
