    The least interesting tie of the round sees two sides who believe "zee top 14 iz more important" face off to decide who'll lost to the Dublin based Champions Elect in the semi final with yours truly there to rub it in the face of the home fans. That's pretty much all I have to say... Clermont are in a **** patch of a good season, Toulon are in a good patch of a **** one... Who has a major world language as their mother tongue and cares?​

    The old question ... do I want England players to do well more than I hate Saracens?

    Leinster and Toulon forming an unlikable alliance? Most Leinster fans were rooting for Clermont the last time Munster played them. What's changed?

    I'm hoping for a Clermont vs Wasps semi, if we get knocked out I will pop to Franklins Gardens and support the Jaune et Bleu. Best fans in the world!

    Toulon are an easier semi! Us an Clermont have a fierce and respected rivalry so it was fair to support them over a side that we have **** all to do with like Munster...

    Leinster is like the kid that stands outside a conversation circle with the popular kids and laughs along as if he's involved, but in reality he makes everyone there uncomfortable, and no one is directly addressing him for that very reason but he fails to take the hint. Nothing about Leinster is fierce, but you're right about our rivalry, we don't respect teams we bonus point.

    "Better Season"
    You still have Ospreys and Ulster away. We have the Italians and nothin' but home games. Keep that hard on about two 4 try bonus points separating us in the league and your 4th place seeding in the CC. You topped your **** pool, now top your **** self.

    Time for the bastions of the proper free market to take the stage.

    It's a pity this match is crap, 'cos the atmosphere here could be incredible. Great crowd, nice loud and passionate. Hopefully the 2nd half both teams will stop dicking around and turn it up a notch.

    It's an arm wrestle. But there's skill in slowing down the opposition's rucks and defending well which Toulon are doing.

    Vermeulen won that ruck. Barnes took ages to blow his whistle which slows down the game that bit more.

    -------------------
    Edit

    Clermont try at last. Patience rewarded. Use the big stick in the forwards then go wide.

    Toulon can't spend the whole game defending. They have not seen the ball since HT.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to use a french referee for this game?
