    Gloucester v Toulouse
    Connacht v Montpellier

    You'd imagine the two French are favourites here, on the basis of this weekend's display Connacht have a lot to worry about this year. No idea how good Gloucester are but a win this weekend would be a big statement.

    Simpson another Wasps academy guy they cast aside only to play really well for another side as they continue to struggle. Bet him and Cipriani are feeling pretty good at their new home

    Nigel is probably on post World Cup sabbatical and the game has to have a pro14 ref, aren’t exactly a lot of options.

    Toulouse have been the better team this second half, deserved lead.

    We'll see who's laughing when you're wondering why your mum's house smells like knob cheese at Christmas.

    Honestly taking cips and Simpson off with 4 mins to go made little sense

    Only fair after they had Robson from us.
    Looks like we got the better of the Vellacott swap, although time will tell.

    Not sure Toulouse did much tonight yet still worthy winners.
    Difficult to win a game if you can’t win your set piece.

    Toulouse deserved that win really. Much better team overall. They've played better games but potential winners if the cards fall their way.

    Gloucester already have a mountain to climb, will probably need to win one of their games in France to go through.

    Tom Daly starting a Heino game... Jaysus.

    Fairly hard to call this one, Montpellier away and Connacht just aren't a side that'll make noise in this competition.

    Connacht winning this would be pretty heroic given their injuries.

    Would seriously worry about the bench though.
