    And instead will win none?!

    I'm more afraid of Schmidt in NZ, giving them a near perfect game plan for every match will be whack.

    Agreed. Schmidt I think may be the next NZ coach.

    Ok. Let’s go bring up a past team, instead of the one he’s taken to a bottom of a group in the Champions Cup with most of the Scottish side...

    Isa is lovely!

    Never thought we'd win 6 in that group, now to not bottle things like last season.

    27 points from that group is just ******* ridiculous quite honestly.

    At the beginning of the season, I favoured Munster over Leinster.
    I've...
    Changed my mind.

    I'll also say that I won't be surprised if the champions cup final is an all pro-14 affair

    Munster V Leinster then... as I can’t see it being any other.

    Although I think Clermont could be there. Just a bit too many injuries

    Munster?
    I'd be surprised at that tbh,
    They showed enough flakiness and ******** themselves under pressure to suggest they won't make it through knockouts

    If they go through, then I think Scarlets will be serious contenders as the weather warms up.

    I'll be rooting for Clermont though (my mrs' local)

    I'd agree we are outsiders but don't think we have bottled anything or well at least there no evidence. Just been beaten by teams better e.g. Scarlets and Saracens last year. This year we lost to Racing last week but they are in great form and well wouldn't call it bottling.

    Can’t see any other Pro 14 team making the final. Ulster have to beat Wasps tomorrow at the Ricoh. Scarlets are the only other option for a pro 14 final

    Clermont are not title contenders until their get their 1st choice backline back.

    Their backline has been decimated Lopez Raka Penaud Fofana Rougerie etc. Lopez and Raka are out for season.

    I'm guessing it will be Leinster v Saracens just after 6 Nations. Might be tasty

    Ulster and Racing better both win or lose, don't want Sarries.

    I think it will be Sarries can see Ulster loose with a BP and Racing loose.
    Very interesting too that the Leinster home semi final is nowhere near certain as the 4th and 5th teams will be tight so could easily be an away SF.
    To be fair it a flawed system in 1 way as doesn't fully reward top seed but equally it exciting way

    Should Leinster win their quarter final and if Munster or Ulster finish as 5th seeds, Leinster will have a home semi final due to the fact that it'll be played in Lansdowne Road.

    I'd like Sarries in the quarter final. It'd be a great challenge to go head to head with the defending champs. Next get revenge on Scarlets for the Pro12 semi final defeat.
