We’ve got Europe but it’s going to be tough

Post by JP14 » Sat May 05, 2018 6:26 pm

This season Northampton (who qualified as 20th seed) got a pool with Clermont and Saracens whereas Harlequins got a pool with La Rochelle, Wasps & Ulster.

Put this way, we’re going to get an incredible tough pool next year...

I cannot see that there will be any easy groups. Surely a European Cup should be difficult - if you want an easier competition we should have lost today and been in the lower competition.

There aren't really any easy pools in the champions cup nowadays, whoever wins it has had to battle their way through

I would imagine Leinster and Montpellier could well be seeded the same

If you are good enough then you will make it regardless. The disarray this season gone has been inexcuseable

It's always tough. That's the point. Like others, I would appreciate a season without Munster!
