I don't know if what you write about the rugby is true because I hate union but it's strung together well and reads pretty well too.

I don't know which Welsh team you follow but thinking that the Dragons will come out of a group with Castres and Munster sounds like a touch of the rose tinted lenses approach. For Castres or Newport to top the group they'll need to win in Thomond Park which has been an impossibility for every visiting team. Munster have no fears of travelling to France or Wales and will probably pick up 2 away wins but discounting Sale does seem quite foolish, they beat Leinster away last time they were in the HEC so trips to Newport and Castres won't strike the fear of God into them. I'd fancy Munster and Sale to be fighting it out for top spot in that group.

Are you kidding? Newport will be lucky to avoid finishing bottom of their group, which I would expect Leicester to take.

Wasps are still an awesome force, and I think writing them off altogether is a very risky prediction.

I thought Newport were in Group A with Munster, the Ospreys are in Leicester's group. Or am I mixing them up?

My mistake, I meant Munster, not Leicester.

Newport gwent dragons – this group is so close and therell be a lot of point taking from all teams, I can see Newport sneaking this on the last day against castres at home.[/b]

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I've actually watched Newport and Castres today and given the evidence, not just from today but from other matches there's only going to be one winner when Newport play Castres and it ain't gonna be Newport.

By the way did anyone check out the Dragons v Leicester game this weekend?

And may I add the 24-15 scoreline was quite flattering towards Leicester (it was more like 24-10)

I'm banking on Leicester actually playing a full strength side and taking some interest in the Heineken Cup though, as opposed to the PC which they clearly aren't bothered about.

Say you were a betting man, would you take a bet on the Dragons beating the Tigers at Rodney Parade when they meet next?

the dragons are full of pace and flair and if they can nullify the leicster pack - then - yes i would say the dragons would win.
