Anyone know when the draw for the tournaments are? I thought that the Dragons would've had a good chance in the Challenge Cup even if they lost but after Friday's performance I'm not so sure... :( Hopefully it was a bleesing in disguise! <_<

The ECC can be a blessing in disguise, ok it ain't a pot o' money but Sale won it a year or two back, and look where we are now.

Silverware can improve the morale of any teams, and it'll be nice to see someone bar the GP competing for the ECC ***le.

Looking at what London Irish did to Parma though, and they didn't even win the ECC, I sense the Dragons will need to improve a lot before having a good chance in it.

Treviso, Perpignan, Leicester, Borders

Sale, Toulouse, Scarlets, Castres

I though that the group draw was made publically? Still, I'll take that group. Saints, Ospreys and Bourgoin all beatable at home, and a possible couple of results away from home.

Well, that's an easy route to the 1/4s than! :D
Pfff....that's probably another 'group of death'. Any of the 4 teams could win it. No easy games for anyone.

Looking forward to seeing Reihana take a dump on Henson if those are the groups.

Dont' be so cocky. We and the Ospreys have beaten better sides than the Saints, and come a hell of a close to beating others.

It's King Carlos mania in this part of the country, hard not to be cocky. ;)

Being fair though, we beat Toulouse season before last and nearly got relegated. Heineken Cup brings out the best in us. Most of the time.

Aye, but he's just one player. I'd still like to see him poop all over Henson, and playing him could make Godman into a fantastic 10.

yes but they were still a fairly new region, and the sqaud was still going through a building phase.

next season we have strengthend our side, and have signed some top players. i belive we have enough quality to win the cl, and get to the qf of the hec.
