My crystal ball has Perpignan qualifying with the 2nd best record and us with the best runners up record.

What happens then, I presume we would not face another trip to Perpignan?

My heart wants a home semi but my head says Scarlets will try to play open rugby - since they don't have a pack - so score will be more likely 35-30 than 10-5... unfortunately.

USAP are too street wise to lose to Scarlets

7th seed ... away to 2nd ...but who that will be we will have to wait until Toulouse finish at around 5pm Sunday... Saints will be fine though...

If the worst happens and Perpignan gain a TBP win against Scarlets then my personal vote would be an away trip to Dublin! :smt025

Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.

My prediction

Northampton v Ulster
Leinster v Tigers
Perpignan v Toulon
Biarritz v Toulouse

Plus Wasps, Clermont & Munster to the Amlin.

No doubt I'll be totally wrong!

If that turns out to be right, we might as well pencil Saints in for the semi-final against Scarborough Old Boys - probably their hardest test on the road to the final :smt009 :smt017 :smt002

This is so easy to work out:-

1. 8 teams will make the quarter finals
2. Some teams will be from France, Some from Ireland and some from England
3. The top four seeded teams will play at home
4. The bottom seeded 4 teams will play away.
5. 4 teams will go through to the semi - finals...

What is all the fuss about????

You won't be playing!!

Not just anybody, somebody!!!

Or to quote Mr. Gilbert (no not him what makes the balls, him what wrote the words for Sir Arthur):
