  2. 'We're as tight as we've ever been'

    FT: Saracens 32-16 Munster

    When asked whether the controversy surrounding Billy Vunipola had galvanised his side, Saracens head coach Mark McCall said on BT Sport:

    "Our group are pretty good at having their backs against the wall. We've been through a lot together. We've lost a lot of these semi-finals so we know what its feels like and we've been through too much to waste an opportunity like today.

    "You see today it galvanised us. We're as tight as we've ever been."

  3. Post update

    FT: Saracens 32-16 Munster

    Billy Vunipola goes over to his family and friends in the stands for some bear hugs and toddler carrying.

    Twenty-one carries, 40 metres made, it was a big performance from him today. Michael Rhodes was a bit better for me though.

  4. 'I have felt a lot of kindness and love'

    FT: Saracens 32-16 Munster

    Billy Vunipola

    Saracens number eight Billy Vunipola speaking to BT Sport: "I think I say all year, we are lucky to play in such big games, to be part of such a good team and have such good friends and family. I think we were close to our best, a few guys who were not as fit as they would like to be like, for instance Mako and Brad, but we were good.

    "Behind closed doors this week, I felt a lot of love and kindness and I am very grateful to be part of this team. From my point of view, I believe in what I believe in and it was never my intention to hurt anyone.

    "I think it is important to enjoy tonight. I am looking forward to watching the other semi-final like everyone else."

    And would you believe it? Billy Vunipola is named as man of the match. I wonder who the pundits wanted to speak to after the match...

  7. Post update

    Saracens 32-16 Munster

    Billy Vunipola has been announced as the man of the match over the tannoy after topping the Saracens carry charts with 21 runs.

    The number eight is cheered to the rafters by his supporters and jeered by Munster's.

  8. Sin-bin - Vincent Koch

    Saracens 32-16 Munster

    The TMO is having a look at a breakdown.

    Tadhg Beirne has been send head over heels by the combination of Maro Itoje and Vincent Koch both lifting a leg apiece.

    Jerome Garces pings the latter, but it could have been either.

  9. Post update

    Saracens 32-16 Munster

    Andrew Conway knocks on a high ball to cheers from the Saracens fans'.

    The Munster wing's body language says it all.

    This match is over the horizon and far away. Another semi-final defeat is in the post for Munster...

    Boos ring round the Ricoh as Billy Vunipola walks back to the corner after that try and gestures to the crowd. Is he encouraging the Saracens fans or taunting the Munster? It’s been an interesting week for the England number 8, and he’s writing more headlines here as Sarries look to be heading to the final.

    Must say, I thought he was interacting with his own fans and Munster's supporters reacted to that...

  11. Converted try - Saracens 32-16 Munster

    Billy Vunipola (con Farrell)

    Billy Vunipola slaps the badge on his chest and milks the Saracens fans for some extra decibels. It has been a difficult week and he is going to enjoy this...

    Richard Barrington had taken the two-time champions up to within two metres and you don't stop the number eight from there.

    Two more from Saracens fly-half Owen Farrell.

  12. Post update

    Saracens 25-16 Munster

    David Strettle slices through. Munster at sixes and sevens...

  13. Post update

    Saracens 25-16 Munster

    Some kicking ping-pong. Munster, down by nine, decide that they need to try something a little more risky.

    Darren Sweetnam runs and is scragged. Back to the skies. And that is well claimed by Liam Williams.

    Paul Grayson

    Former England fly-half on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    Munster will breathe a sigh of relief. Owen Farrell doesn't miss many - certainly not pressure kicks like that.

  16. Missed penalty

    Saracens 25-16 Munster

    Owen Farrell's kick drifts to the right of the sticks to cheers from some buoyed up Munster fans.

  17. Penalty to Saracens

    Saracens 25-16 Munster

    Munster pinged at the breakdown and Owen Farrell has the chance to stick a calming three on the board.

    It is only just in the Munster half. Distance could be a factor...

  18. Post update

    Saracens 25-16 Munster

    We have a ball game now. Munster with the wind in their sails and nine points to reel in...

    Can Saracens put the cosh on this match, or is there something about to catch fire here?
