Not really the best way to progress, but that is the way things at this moment in time.Roll on the semis I guess.

Gutted, was looking forward to this. At least testing protocols prevented our lads risking their health (more than normal at least), questions have to be asked about the efficacy of Castres' bubble.

They don't have a secure bubble though. It's not like the cricket where everyone was in a secure environment and players didn't see their families for weeks on end. The same with Leicester - one of our players could easily catch it and pass it on the a few team mates.

I think that this means if Scarlets win we have Home advantage but if Toulon win we are playing in France currently 8-6 to Toulon. Could be interesting

Off to France we go. Scarlets had a chance to steal it at the death but fell asleep and got well and truly counter-rucked (well, the support was so bad it wasn’t really a counter ruck).

I would have preferred we went to South Wales, I dont think we have ever won in Toulon, lovely place to go but sadly wont be going this time as too risky. :smt022

Imagine we might field a strong team for the away match vs Bristol on Wed now. Bristol put out their first XV last night so not sure how many will feature with only a 5 day break
The Bristol game is on the 30th September, after the Semi-Final on the 26/27th, I believe.
Yep you’re right :smt023

Tigers would have to do 14 days quarantine if they went to France surely?

As a sportsman I'd have preferred to have progressed or failed by my own efforts.
But if competitors don't turn up,get injured or are disqualified you get a buy. First one on me - COVID 19 fail.

We were always going to play Scarlets at WR. Oh well, Toulon with a crowd it is!
