Leinster and Munster will qualify, SF will send the youth team to improve it and concentrate on top14 to save the season.

Leinster ain't here. But well this pool will come down to away wins I think.

Interesting. This is not a vintage Munster team, and Treviso look worse than last year. What's the opposite of the group of death?

Depends I reckon Tigers will beat Stade Friday and Treviso.

Munster will be the key game We should have an upgrade @12 with JDV by that time.

A full strength squad of
1) Ayerza,
2) Youngs
3) Cole
4) Slater
5) Kitchener
6) Croft
7) O'Connor
8) Crane
9) Youngs
10) Williams
11) Betham
12) JDV
13) Manu
14) Veainu
15) Tait

16) Ghilrandini
17) Logo
18) Balmain
19) Fitzgerald
20) Williams/Pearce/McCaffrey
21) Harrison
22) Burns
23) Goneva

That team could beat anyone but Manu will prob miss both Munster games.

Have to say I'm hopeful of Tigers winning this squad rested plenty of players Sat for Friday so targeting this.

Well, be sure full squad of SF could beat anyone in Europe too, afterall they are french champions and won their 3 matches against Toulon last season if im right.
But season started so badly, we are stucked in 9-10th rank.
If we had taken the points earlier, maybe Quesada would have send the real team, but considering the situation , i doubt we lose strengh in Hcup rtather than in top14.
If we reach top6 this season, next year we ll be serious candidates in hcup.

Really like Lachie McCaffrey.
He's a good player, but I think it's the rags-to-riches type story. Has sort of set himself as a personal trainer in Aus, then offered a contract by Leicester and now starting for one of the biggest clubs, in one of the the biggest comps in the world.

Perhaps he could train himself to control the ball at the back of the scrum ...
