EPCR rules are so convoluted
La Rochelle look set to qualify via league position, which should mean that we play Harlequins (as semi finalist losers) for a spot
However because quins have qualified anyway, rather than us just getting the spot apparently it goes to a play off between two pro14 sides instead

Hopefully Sarries just do us a favour tomorrow to cut the headaches

Great final very open play. 23 French starters on the pitch - 12 for La Rochelle 11 for Clermont.

One could pick a pretty good French team out the 23 that started:

Priso Kayser Slimani
Vahaamahina Iturria
Lapandry Aldritt Gourdon
Parra Lopez
Raka Fofana Rattez Penaud
Retiere

I like the look of that backline. Better pick than anything Brunel has managed.
