Before today's matches:

1 Ulster 26 pts
2 Toulon 24 pts (15 tries, +66 points difference)
3 Toulouse 23 pts (16 tries, +80 points difference)
4 Leinster 22 pts (16 tries, +86 points difference)
5 Clermont 19 pts (13 tries, +45 points difference)
6 Munster 18 pts (13 tries, +52 points difference)
7 Leicester 21 pts
8 Saracens 20 pts

Quite simply, we will be away to Toulon unless Clermont get a try bonus win over Racing Métro.
Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.

My guess is we will be looking at:

Ulster v Saracens
Clermont v Tigers
Toulon v Leinster
Munster v Toulouse

If Clermont score a bonus point win today, that will take their try total to 17 and they will be 2nd seeds. I'm not sure whether we still follow the old formula
1 v 8, 2 v 7, 3 v 6, 4 v 5. But if we do then the quarter finals could look like this.

Ulster(1) v Saracens (8) Clermont(2) v Leicester (7)
Toulon(3) v Leinster (6) Munster(4) v Toulouse (5).

So that will mean a trip to France for the Tigers to play a team with a fantastic home record. Some match?

Clermont are 2 trys up already so it looks likely that we are travelling to them. They do have an incredible home record but records are there to be broken :smt023
