I'm not too disappointed with Pool 3 either - certainly better deal than ending up in pool 5 or 6!

Newport
Gloucester
Stade
Biarritz
Wasps
Leicester
Llanelli
Tolouse

I think Saracens will be a Quarter Finalist the same way as Northampton last year, and despite having an easy group, I fear the Dragons still won't get through!

As you can see, I'm quite happy! A nice trip to France/Spain & Italy! Not really bothered about going to Glasgow though..

Hopefully we can trounce Glasgow and Viadana hard enough to give us enough momentum for a vital win against Biarritz. Hey, if relegation fodder can do it, so can Sarries! :D

Where will you be going this coming HEC season Mite?

Also...I'm still not quite sure how 'Quins and Irish got into the HEC...:huh:

How does one even get to Viadana?! It is like in the middle of this bermuda triangle betwixt Parma, Reggio and Mantova! Each 22km away from the promised land of HEC rugby! Impossible!

How exciting! :D

We demolished them a couple of times 2 seasons ago in the ECC, they have somewhere around 27 fans.

They had a very large and vocal contingent when they visited Worcester for the ECC last year!

I'm serious! They kept yelling "VIADAH-NA!" over and over and over and gibbering on in Italian and complaining about access to Sixways (a rite of passage for any visiting fan).

Maybe they're sadists and love the punishment?

By finishing higher than Northampton, Bath, Newcastle, Worcester and Sale - or would you suggest two of these teams should be in the HEC to make up the 7 places England has instead?? :)

But I thought only the top four in the GP and the HEC cup winner were allowed in!

This is most unfair! *hmphs!*

As for Biarritz, my enquiries have been much more successful, with one French Basque hotel trying to "get in" with that urban Anglo-Saxon crowd by proclaiming that "the hotel have got the WIFI" homies yo yo yo.

Odds on you'll booik a hotel in Birritz and the game will get moved at the last minute and end up being played in San Sebastien.

Those crazy Basques!

Group winners should be:

Dragons - should be too strong for Perpignan and London Irish.
Ospreys - won't slip up again, expecting them to win everything next yr.
Stade Francais - too strong for the rest.
Biarritz - Saracens might be in with a shout.
Scarlets - hopefully, it could be any of Munster and Wasps aswell.
Leicester - again, too strong for the rest.

Sholuldn't be too chuffed, Gloucester will tear them a new arsehole.[/b]

Not a chance in hell.
