        They're behind Llanelli on Points Difference.

              Heading into the European QF Weekend:

              Pro 14:
              Confirmed Leinster Glasgow
              TBC Munster Ulster Connacht Treviso.
              The Play-off would have Cardiff Blues at home to Edinburgh.

              EPL:
              Confirmed Exeter
              TBC Saracens Gloucester Harlequins Northampton Sale.

              Top 14:
              Confirmed
              TBC Toulouse Clermont Lyon Racing 92 Castres Bordeaux.

              Question re the 20th spot, if 3 of the Challenge Cup Semi Finalists are going to make it via their league and the remaining side is not, can they get it or do you have to have 2 non-qualifying sides and a playoff and in the 1st scenario it passes to the league of the winner of the Heineken?


              Will use proper terms, don't want to be accused of using Leinsterisms:)

                I suspect the answer to your question will be decided once the Nigels work out which scenario is most likely to result in another English team in the competition!?!?!?

                  Piquet could you embolden the teams that have already qualified for next years competition ie Leinster, Glasgow, Saracens, Exeter and Clermont.

                  Would be great to have your analysis as to the permutations once the Pro 14, GP and T14 recommence in April.

                      You're exhibiting Leinsterisms

                      "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

                      Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                        Didn’t know “Heiny” was a Leinsterism, every day is a school day;)

                          Heading into this weekend:




                          Pro 14:

                          TBC Munster, Ulster, Connacht and Treviso.


                          The Play-off would have Cardiff Blues at home to Edinburgh. If the Pro 14 get the 20th Heineken spot, then Cardiff Blues would be in automatically with an Edinburgh Ospreys playoff.

                          EPL:
                          Confirmed: Exeter
                          TBC Saracens, Gloucester, Harlequins, Northampton and Sale. Bath in position to get in if the
                          Prem get the 20th Heineken spot.


                          Top 14:
                          Confirmed
                          TBC Toulouse, Clermont, Lyon, Racing 92, Castres and Bordeaux.
                          La Rochelle in position to get in if the T14 get the 20th Heineken spot.

                            The Play-off would have Cardiff Blues at home to Edinburgh. If the Pro 14 get the 20th Heineken spot, then Cardiff Blues would be in automatically with an Edinburgh Ospreys playoff (based on last season's criteria).

                            Confirmed
                            TBC Toulouse, Clermont, Lyon, Racing 92, Castres and Bordeaux. Stade Francais in position to get in if the T14 get the 20th Heineken spot.

                              Would be genuinely shocking and utterly deserved if an Italian side could qualify for Europe but a Welsh side could not.
