    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?

    Bottom of the pool state section. Misses La Rochelle and Munster who still technically have a chance I think.

    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.
