Love pre season.. optimism over our league placing, chance of a cup, new kit and of course the fixture list..where am I and my 2 lucky cohorts going to visit this season..it's my 40th so Mrs F knows an abroad trip is only right (if she is lucky she can join us).. Toulon away? Clermount? The fixture list does tease!!
There is never any points for 2nd place...

As ever pretty brutal pools, except for, as always, the one with the Italian team, which will produce a runner up qualifier and a home Q-F for pool winner. Homes wins a must. A collection Bonus points and one away win should be enough for an away Q-F. Can we do better than that, perhaps, but will be tough.

It could have been worse, happy enough with that.

Could have been much better too. Wasps and Toulon virtually have byes to the quarter finals.

Well that is some Group, not the Pool of Death which is Pool 2 but difficult all the same, we are going to have to look to home and away wins at Racing and Castres and possibly a home win against Munster to qualify,that's a tall order.

I'll say. That's pretty much as brutal as it could have been for them.
