Not one Welsh, Scottish or Italian team beat an English or French team in either competition (further, Connacht lost and Munster drew against such opposition too).

And this weekend was pretty dismal too, with only Leinster and (much more surprisingly) Zebre managing wins over English or French opposition.

I can't wait until all this outside play is over and we can focus on Pro14 rugby again.

Not surprising in the main comp anyway, bar Leinster it's a relatively weak offering from the pro 14 this year and it was a very tough set of fixtures too. If Glasgow snuck past Saints and Gloucester to get into the QF the league would have exceeded expectations.

Has anyone found the European standings as it stands meaning a table of the top teams and who's qualified rather than just the individual pool tables?

I'd predict:
Sale v Glasgow
Exe v Sarries
Toulouse v Ulster
Clermont v Racing

Can't see Saints or Glos winning in France. Semi finals of Ster v Clermont and Toulouse v Sarries would be mental, three of the four best teams ever in the comp and the best team never to win it.

Sale vs Glasgow in the QFs?

Yet another poor weekend. Between both competitions we've lost Scarlets, Dragons, Edinburgh and most shockingly of all Leinster! Can Ulster win at Toulouse tomorrow?

Contrast this with 2017/18, when both competitions were won by Pro 14 teams, plus two of the remaining three semi-finalists in the Champions Cup were from the Pro 14 too.

The English/French seasons are significantly more intensive than pro14s and this extended break has levelled the playing field

Is that a troll? Terribly thought out take if not!
