I think there’s a column missing - should be 5 pools.


Yep, there is also no Italian team.

Regardless, I hope we get Newcastle- easy to get to and cheap for a night out.

The table doesn't show properly on a mobile (or an iphone, at least).

If you look at it on a laptop/ PC etc then all five columns are there and all is in order.

There's no Italian team because neither of them qualified.

Cormac has given a very clear explanation of who we can and can't draw a page or so back (just to pre-empt the questions about potential groups). For example, Cardiff are the only Pro14 team that can be in our group.

I wouldn't mind a group with Wasps and Toulouse. It would be good to get back at Wasps some more for those losses a few years back

Very true, going back to Coventry doesn’t really set the pulse racing on the plus side it is really easy to get to however that’s about all it has going for it !. If I had a choice out of that lot would have to be Exeter/Bath, Toulouse/Castres as places to go on an away trip !.

Is Tomane's rugby nationality not based on the country he played for, I.e. Australia rather than the country for which he holds a passport ? If so, it does create a 4 into 2 does not go scenario in respect of Leinster's NIQs.

No, it's question of your nationality, not your sporting qualification.

Half time in Top 14 Final and it’s Castres leading Montpellier 19 - 6. Really surprised as Montpellier were clear favourites.

Castres win 29 - 13 so we can’t get them in the draw. Fair play to them for winning the Top 14 but they’re no great shakes. Joe Tomane came on too late to make any difference.

Forever amazed at how well Castres do in the Top 14 considering how unremarkable they are in Europe. Ulster and Munster will be praying to be in their group.

Newcastle/Lyon/Cardiff would be the easiest group, Wasps/Toulouse/Toulon probably the hardest (or is Racing/Leicester/Toulon harder?). I'd love to get Bath from pot 4 for my favourite away weekend.

In fairness to them, they have the 11th biggest budget in the Top 14....they simply cant compete with their best foot forward in both competitions. I think its fair to say they're punching above their weight already as it is by winning their league. They also make it hard for teams in Europe to come to their ground and win.

DOn't think Wasps are that good tbh. They'll be missing Haskell next year and Cipriani. They've Sopoaga & Shields(never seen him) to come in which are probably upgrades but they seem to have gone backwards since we dispatched them in the QF last year.

You'd want Newcastle, the best team in Europe, in your group?
