    I must tell you I haven't investigated it yet, but it certainly is an amazing place. If we could I think it would be a wonderful thing."
    Croke Park hype train. All aboard choo choo, no foreigners allowed though.
    Ordinarily the semi final dates would clash with the League final dates. However, i think the GAA are condensing the League fixtures this year so that the it finishes up by early April. It could work but i doubt it'll happen.

    i know why as i see his parents quite often. he just wanted a change in life as he has family in the UK, he thought the best offer for him and his family was Nothampton, although he's on a good salary i think the change of life was the main reason without going to far from home. He did Montpellier most of his younger life then Toulouse now Northampton and i did see him after the Saints v us game this season and he said he and his family were very happy bunnies. Northampton are not great this season but they are far from a bad side but i expect that from a Tigers supporter. I would say the same about Beziers if they were in the TOP 14.

    So assuming Toulouse and Wasps do what they really should it'll be

    1. Clermont
    2. Munster
    3. Saracens
    4. Leinster
    5. Wasps
    6. Toulouse
    7. Glasgow
    8. Toulon

    So

    Clermont V Toulon
    Munster V Glasgow
    Saracens V Toulouse
    Leinster V Wasps

    All competitive games. No gimmes.

    I'd rather any other team from 5-8 besides Glasgow all joking aside.

    Is this correct as I though I heard we could get Toulon or Toulouse. I may be wrong.

    Glasgow is 1 team I probably don't want

    Leinster probably got blessed by last night.
    Wasps home and if they win ilI believe they'd fancy Clermont neutrally in France

    So I may be wrong but it seems we will play Glasgow unless Toulouse win by 31 points.

    On fixture side obviously this is presumption BUT

    Munster v Glasgow on Friday night
    Sarries vs ?? Sat at 3
    Leinster vs Wasps in evening
    Clermont vs Toulon on Sunday

    Can you see Toulon beating Clermont?

    And if it's Munster vs Sarries it'd be in Aviva.
    Do think Leinster have a psychological hold over Clermont and if they met in semi they'd beat them

    Notice the word dream!

    If we have Sexton we'll beat Wasps. If we have Carbery we're favourites. After that its anyone's guess. I don't see a province in the final.

    Chuffed with that, all the Pro 12 teams avoid each other, and I seriously expect to beat Tolouse as they came through a group with Connacht and Zebre. We gonna renaissance them hard.

    I'll say it now. I fancy we can win it out. If we have full fitness. I'd fancy us to beat Toulouse and Sarries if it was in HQ. If Glasgow beat Sarries I'd gancy them to win it out.

    Wasps won 6-33 on their last visit to Dublin in October 2015 and 51-10 in their last meeting with Leinster only 12 months ago. They won't fear coming to the RDS or Aviva Stadium.

    I fancy Clermont and Munster to win easily. The other two games should be a lot closer.

    Not happy with Wasps but they've been poor away so I think we'll win. Clermont's tournament to lose.

    QFs are paired, Munster's with Sarries and Clermont's with Leinster's. If both home teams win the higher seed is at home and if one away side win they get a home semi and if both do the higher seed gets it.

    Right.
    Munster vs Toulouse winners play
    Sarries vs Glasgow

    If Mun v Sarries sf it in Dublin
    If Mun v Gla it in Scotland
    If Toulouse v Gla/Sarries it in France

    Same logic other side
    Mun=Clermont
    Toulouse = Toulon
    Sarries =Leinster
    Glasgow = Wasps
