So new experience for me honestly I had to go back to last years threads to remember what this was called.
Obviously only the cool posters will be in here.

You won't even have Olly to keep you company.

Oh well, there's always the Welsh.
I'm really forward to the titanic tie that is the Dragons V -STM Krasnoyarsk.
I do wonder if Scarlets will take this seriously, if they do I'd at least expect them to make the semi final. As your a Leinster fan, you should be ok but for other Irish fans I'm willing to explain what a semi final is as I don't think they would have seen many.

Munster have had to deal with far more semi finals than they'd care to talk about.

The word you were looking for was final. Munster famously make the semi final in everything before being thoroughly found out, KEEP UP.
Also I completely forgot that Leicester were in this competition this year. I don't know why that centre partnership makes me laugh so much, but it really does. Also the name Facundo Gigena sounds indecent for some reason.

Noel Reid learned how to be physical when on Erasmus in Apia.
That's a grim stat, but then again Munster have a few games in the Challenge Cup and Leinster won it. Clermont aren't long gone from it. Would like to see Leicester win it.

Delighted Tigers are in this. There's no beating that 10-12-13 axis if we're honest.

(Good start for Bristol smashing Zebre 59 - 21 but still plenty to work on, Brive away should be a tougher test. Apparently ECC don't cover video stuff so Bears made their own highlights)

Should be interesting with that back selection. Are Cardiff putting out a strong team?

Yes, Cardiff have selected a strong team

Blues: Amos; Lane, Lee-Lo, Halaholo, Summerhill; Evans, L Williams; Domachowski, Belcher, Andrews, Davies, Turnbull, Lewis-Hughes, Boyde, N Williams,

Replacements: Myhill, Thyer, Assiratti, Cook, Botham, Jones, Tovey, Morgan

That backline is going to be pretty exciting
