    Leinster v Glasgow Pro12 V Pro12
    Clermont V Toulon Top 14 V Top 14
    Saracens V Wasps AP V AP
    Munster V Connacht Pro 12 V Pro 12

    Has that ever happened before?

    I think I'd travel home if we got Clermont in Thomond. Not to be missed. Getting teams that qualify by pumping Zebre for 10 points would be nice too though.

    Never but it's even crazier no Pro 12 team last year to 4 this year.
    Still think there'll be a twist next week somewhere

    The most obvious is Glasgow potentially v Tigers.
    Could see Connacht putting in A huge shift v Toulouse.

    Think Tigers will be out to restore pride and ye are tougher at home.
    Toulon to rattle Sarries maybe?
    Or Exeter to shock Clermont

    Toulon pack is pretty pathetic currently, Cockers might get them fired up but if sale can get on top of them in the scrum at home Toulon against Sarries away has no chance.

    Gits starting though makes a big difference.

    Exeter against Clermont away is definitely a chance, just don't see it happening unless Clermont fail to turn up.

    Leinster
    Pool 1
    Leicester V Glasgow: Leicester are abject. Glasgow have more to play for. 1-4
    Munster V Racing: 5-0

    Pool 2
    Toulouse V Connacht: I'd like to see Connacht do well but they've no chance. Toulouse will murder them in the scrum and knock them back in every tackle. 5-0.
    Wasps V Zebre: 5-0

    Pool 3
    Sale V Scarlets: 1-4
    Saracens V Toulon: Toulon game still littered with mistakes. Saracens pride themselves on not making many. Only one winner in this. 5-0.

    Pool 4
    Castres V Leinster: Castres have a 6 turnaround and an important home game next week against Montpellier to consider. 0-5
    Montpellier V Northampton: Green shoots for Saints of late but have a feeling the kind fixtures are masking a vulnerability. 5-0.

    Pool 5
    Clermont V Exeter: Hope i'm wrong but i can't see Exeter causing any problems. They lost badly in the corresponding fixture. Clermont are dominant at home. 5-0.
    Ulster V Bordeaux: 4-1.

    That gives
    Leinster V Montpellier
    Clermont V Glasgow
    Munster V Toulouse
    Saracens V Wasps

    All home wins.

    What seems ridiculous is, if we get 5 points v Saints we can still qualify if results go our way like Sarries beating Toulon and Toulon getting no points will probably be the lowest ever qualifying score 16 pts, still have my doubts but it is possible. there is also the Glasgow, Exeter, Toulouse games as well which could provide surprises letting us in by the skin of our teeth.

    Interesting article if Leinster made SF at home too it may have to go north or South as offical rulings say can't be in same city so that may be interesting too

    Link?

    I've checked the rules laid out by EPCR i can't see any mention of this. Only stipulation i see is that EPCR pick the venues.

    It on Times and has been mentioned on OTB. Yes it's always been picked by EPCR or ERC before. However now it's said EPCR want to eliminate the loophole teams like Leicester, Toulouuse, Leinster and Racing may have had. This has been hovering few months but now will be interesting to see.
    Also it is fair in some ways but I'm sure financial side has to be looked at too
