Edinburgh are the first Scottish side to make the semifinals of the Heineken Cup, and their quest to lift the title continues today as they take on Ulster in the first of the semi showdowns.

Edinburgh’s European form has been in stark contrast to their domestic performances yet no one denies they are in the last four on merit following a shock win against 4 times champions Toulouse in the last round.

Ulster the 1999 champions lay in wait for the Scots, a side that start as favourites on 2BET2 at 6/19 based on the fact that they have defeated their opponents twice already this season in the domestic league.

Springbok Ruan Pienaar has been in sublime form all season and is highly regarded as a world class kicker, something Edinburgh will be wary of.

Leinster 7/8 will be looking to make it 14 European Cup games unbeaten at Bordeaux’s Stade Chaban-Delmas when they take on French Champions Clermont 1/1.

The battle could very well be won and lost in midfield as Fofana and Rougerie face off against ODriscall and Darcy.

New Zealand’s rugby World Cup-winning captain Richie McCaw will make his long delayed return to the field on Sunday after he was named on the Crusaders’ replacements bench for their Super Rugby clash against the Waratahs.

The 31-year-old loose forward has not played since he lifted the Webb Ellis trophy following the All Blacks’ victory over France at Eden Park on October 23 last year.

A glance at the log should be enough to convince the DHL Stormers that their depleted team cannot afford to lose to the Western Force in their final Vodacom Super Rugby tour match in Perth on Saturday.

All your rugby and more on 2BET2.
