    Saracens are going to start their Heineken Cup campaign against French side Clermont Auvergne in France in October

    "Saracens will begin their 2010/11 Heineken Cup challenge with a clash at French champions Clermont Auvergne.

    Sarries travel to the Stade Marcel Michelin on Saturday 9th October while the following weekend in round two, Leinster are the visitors to Saracens on Saturday 16th October, kick off is 5.45pm.

    I think they leave the last two rounds to see how the groups are shaping up and then pick the best matches for the television slots.
    I didn't know how tough this group was! Along with ours, 'tis the group of Death!!

    Poor Ospreys. They're the best region in Wales in my opinion, and having to endure hard Heineken Cup matches must be difficult.
