Leinster at home for the QF…not that SB would ever look that far ahead.

Let's see what COVID throws in the mix and whether the French allow full capacity, might be worth a road trip to the Stade Marcel Michelin
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.

Potential quarter final between Quins and La Rochelle that could be lots of fun.

I'd hope we could over turn Clermont. They're a big side but their discipline isn't great and is hope our fitness could do a number in them. Going to be a really tough couple of games.

So Clermont over 2 legs in the round of 16. Fancy our chances to get the win and progress to the next round. QF at home against Leinster is about as tough as it gets and if we win that one then we are rewarded with an easy home SF match against likely Munster, Toulouse or Exeter :smt002

Potential QF matches:

Racing vs Bristol
Quins vs La Rochelle
Tigers vs Leinster
Toulouse vs Munster

Some fantastic matches in there :smt023

Rather Leinster at WR than the alternative. Win that, and I'd back us to go all the way. :smt027

Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.
