Connaght, Toulouse, Stade Francais and Bordeaux, nos 5,6,7, and 8 have each only won 1 game, Connaght lost 3 the others lost 2 drew 1 according to table on BBC site
So your original comment was wrong then,I just replied that they havnt lost 3 is all

“ I'm struggling with this year's competition; four teams in our group qualify despite losing 3 out of 4 games.”
Given the bloated, money-grabbing format whereby 8 from pool of 12 qualify, something like this was always likely
Yes,I would’ve preferred a 2 legged QF,then a knockout semi then final. Top 4 out of each group through. 2 next best placed teams into Challenge Cup. Something along those lines

It’s how people feel. Imo today has thrown up some great games and with 20 minutes of the last game to go we still don’t know the final line up.
Not sure how it can be money grabbing when there will be no more games played by the eventual winner than a non covid season. Doesn’t really matter how we got there some great fixtures await in the last 16

With this format, teams qualifying for the last 16 will be getting 3 home games in total and 3 away…..the same as if it had been in Pools of 4…….not moneymaking but ensuring that clubs get the same opportunity for the revenue…..not any additional games.
Just seen that Bath have qualified for the next stages of the Challenge Cup!

Clermont!

Love that. Great away trip. Definitely winnable too. They aren't quite the force they were.

If you were Super Kev I'd say Triathlon, run to the channel, swim it, then cycle to Clermont when on French soil...
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

Don’t tempt him. I would prefer I that he was fresh for the defence coaching.
