A few details to add to the previous comments: remember you HATE Racing and their supporter. They...they... play for Racing. and he SUPPPORTS them!

They are not even located in Paris, but in some filthy suburb. I mean their supporter is a decent chap BUT (and that is the only true thing in that post) his shouts are AMPLIFIED by the stadium sound system.

Feel free to ask for a decent restaurant or bar in Paris, there are one or two that still won't bar me.

Wow, I hate Racing! :smt009

Just a bit eh? Just looked at the Saints unoffy. You can imagine their thoughts!!

For our group, at least having faced both Munster and Racing in the last two years' competitions they should be more of a known entity.

Those going to Castres should find loads of ways of getting there - lovely part of the world (albeit not the time of year I'd ordinarily choose to be there!)
Plus the old tale of French sides not travelling well. Who knows...
Will Steve Mafi still be there next season? Will be good to welcome him back.

Yeah, only way that could've been worse is if they had Ulster instead of Ospreys, given how unbelievably awful the Welsh sides always are in Europe.

It will be an interesting measure of whether we have improved if we can do better in next season's Champions Cup against Munster and Racing!

Stade Fan, I might ask you for a bit of advice if I come over for the Edinburgh game in the Challenge Cup this year...

Only the Italians and Scots are worse.

Could be worse (eg Saints) could be a lot better (eg Bath) but no group is going to be easy.

I might just try and get 2 or 3 weekends away this year, providing they are not Sunday fixtures obviously!!

And I'll give you the Scarlets and Ospreys, whose record of getting out of the group stages of the HEC/Champions Cup (4QFs + 1 SF) is better than Glasgow and Edinburgh. And I'm sure that the Blues have chipped in with at least one SF. Not recently, I'll give you, but you did say "always" :smt002

Sorry, chaps, but I can't see an away win among Racing, Castres and Munster.
Let's concentrate on the league!!

Like Glasgow who man shamed Tigers home and away last year?
