We can take them :smt023
As someone said earlier I’d sooner play them at MWWR in the QF than at a neutral venue in the Final.. have to play some of the best teams if we are going to win it :smt023
Our famously narrow pitch could be an advantage
I’m just pleased we’re talking about ourselves in the same breath as Leinster etc if you’d have said that last season we’d have laughed.

Only just found out that the 2 teams that finish bottom of the groups miss out on European rugby altogether for the rest of the season, ouch! Although might not be a bad thing for Bath (who incredibly could still qualify for the Challenge Cup second round!)

If we do get Glasgow in the round of 16 does anyone know where their ground is and what is the capacity.

I’ve just noticed that Montpellier don’t even need to win to qualify and play us,just a LBP. Surely they can get that,I’d much prefer Montpellier than Glasgow. Besides we owe them one too,and this time go for the lineout if they are on a yellow card warning instead of the 3 points 🤬🤬🤬

I’d be happy if Tigers played Montpellier as I’d like to go the away fixture on the weekend of April 8/9/10. The home game is scheduled for the following weekend.
Semper in excreta.

No,Chiefs have qualified. Don’t think they can get a possible home QF either even with a TBP win

Connacht winning well in Paris. Stade now down to 14 2nd yellow for their hooker for foul and abusive language aimed in Sir Wayne’s direction

For anyone thinking Wiese is a liability, take a look at the Stade hooker Latu - how he ever makes it through a full 80 minutes without seeing red is beyond me. Second time I've watched him this season, today he's been red carded, and the other time he was swiftly subbed before he inevitably saw red. His first yellow today cost Stade a 14 point turnaround (minimum) and the second will no doubt cost them even more. Borderline shouldn't even be allowed on a rugby field...

Jonno Ross (IMO the Premiership's dirtiest player) also should have been carded for his no arms clear out (inches away from a red) that was identical to Latu's first yellow offence.

Do you think Ross may get cited Tiglon

It was funny that the commentator had to apologise for the refs language as he repeated what was said
