The Welsh on twitter are going mental over George Earle copping a ban but Best being exonerated

Would explain the difference in recklessness between going for the ball and grabbing somebody by the head but am convinced most Welsh rugby accounts are operated by the Kremlin

Leinster have won just over twice the number of games they have lost in Europe.

96 to 47 with 4 draws.

Which means that If we reach the Knockouts, the quarter final will be our 150th Euro game

It takes a lot to have me support Sarries but I am seriously interested in seeing the departure from this competition of Toulon. If they are still around, particularly in 6th - 8th positions, there are huge dangers in Q/F.

Assuming we finish 4th, behind, Clermont, Sarries and Munster, we probably face Wasps in Aviva. At the moment, that's a match up I'd be happy with, rather than Glasgow, Connacht or Toulouse, or Toulon.

+1 Although getting Glasgow in an away SF is not something that is particularly attractive, if that's possible

Superb Glasgow performance and its now looking like points difference could determine 7th / 8th positions.

Seems like it could be:
(1st) Clermont v Toulon (8th);
(2nd) Sarries v Toulouse (7th);
(3rd) Munster v Glasgow (6th) ;
(4th) Leinster v Wasps (5th).

Satisfied with that and happier with Wasps than Toulon or Glasgow.

Points difference could determine 6th / 7th positions, between Glasgow and Connacht / Toulouse. Toulon are 8th regardless.

Of course there's still a chance of Connacht getting a winning bonus point and then it's Leinster v Connacht in the Aviva!

Not withstanding the shenanigans last week, congrats and well deserved.
Glasgow are at their most dangerous when they play running passing rugby and leave the other nonsense alone.
I suspect Saracens will be your next opponents and they are in for a rude awakening but only if you stick to what you do best.

Shenanigans?? Not even going there.
Neither are we going to Saracens (more's the pity). Extremely likely to be away to Munster.

I know there is a lot to do before Munster will even be close to a home semi final, but does anyone know how the financial side of a home semi final works?

Gate receipts go to EPCR.
