Sorry for being biased. It's going to be between Munster and Leicester in my opinion. It all depends on the matches in December. Can't wait for them! Munster's game this weekend against Stade Francais has officially been postponed.

The format that we were told tonight in Munster is us vs 1 of Leicester and Stade at home and other away. A 3 game pool format and Bonus Points aren't in use. It was just a proposal put forward by top brass across all pools. As the fixture dates are tight and a lot of teams doing extended tours

I'm confused.

I'm confused.

Munster for example.
Played Treviso home so won't play away.
In December will play Leicester either away or home. (Only one game)
In January play Stade once.
No bonus points will matter

That's the type of proposal at moment but again it's nothing concrete.

Oh okay so Tigers will play
Treviso (Away)
Munster (home or Away)

Under that proposal.

How would the best runners up work or would all pools follow suit?

To be honest Tigs I'd say they are brainstorming but the fact is they've very little weekends left. Runners up may be something stupid like tries scored or use bonus points in a 2nd place scenario.

Do not suppose that it has occurred to the powers to be to call the whole thing off?

That would be huge sign of respect and also give players, particularly those involved in the RWC a decent rest!

Nah, do not be stupid.......think of all that empty tv airtime and revenue for the clubs........

Wouldn't mind that and maybe try and get a Extended A league (in this country maybe at least) or maybe a bigger LV cup type competition with maybe Ireland aswell.

Would love to see Umaga etc, Get a good chance of senior type game time what with the LV cup gone.

Looking like we could be going to Paris on Jan 2nd. Nothing concrete but that's the date it seems and our league game with Ulster played during 6Nations

From afar, the front of treviso's and Leicestershire shirts are similar.

Is this Tigers third team?

Nope

But quite a few changes (players and positional) from last week.

This back line hasn't featured as it is this season + preseason.

Being slightly ironic!! So probably a second team overall and thanks for the detailed reply!!

Corbs giving half time scrum lesson including how Leics TH "did not go for the obvious penalty as the Treviso LH was going to ground"........er, he was quite clearly bound on the Treviso LH's arm and was clearly pulling him down!!

Lol at crobs.

Quite happy with Leicestershire recruitments this season:

Williams
Fitzgerald
O'Connor
McCaffrey
Betham
Veainu
Barrow

Considering some of the comments by some that Leicester have lost there quality and have made poor recruitment.

Time will tell I suppose!

First time seen them this season - will not pay for BT just to watch rugby - but good to hear they are changing style providing they are successful of course!!
