Clermont V Rochelle
Parra has got a nasty injury!
Good game enjoyed it best team won.
La Rochelle make sure of Champions Cup Rugby as well if not in top 6 .
Sale maybe sweating abit.
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
Clermont were good.
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
Lapandry Aldritt Gourdon
Raka Fofana Rattez Penaud
I like the look of that backline. Better pick than anything Brunel has managed.
Apparently a UK record for challenge cup attendance, 28k and change
