    Munster v Toulouse is a game between the aristocrats of European club rugby and they have 6 titles between them. It is the pick of the quarter finals and worthy of prime time on Saturday evening.
    Toulon V Leinster is between the two most recent winners.... Take off the red tinted glasses and we are down the pecking order a small bit (for the moment)

        I believe whoever wins the Munster v Toulouse quarter final will win this season's HEC.

          there are 2 french broadcasters.
          the first one, France Televisions takes sat and sun KO 15h. So Toulon and Clermont games.
          the other, Canal Plus, likes sat early or friday night. For us v TL.
          so Ulster will play friday 20h or sat 18h.

              Can't help feeling our relatively small numbers in the Irish squad is really going to work to our advantage in the coming months.

                    its as good a shout as any, but are we good enough to beat Toulon away? They would be fairly well rested after the 6n break and an injury to one of our Irish players could be a disaster.


                    if it's Leinster, then they will have a lot of confidence after beating Toulon away. Can we play the 6 nations as a 3 day sevens tournament and have the qf in 2 weeks?



                    and the English want to get rid of this?

                        injuries and fatigue are a factor but there are benefits to having your players playing (and being good enough) at international level over those who aren't when they face each other.

                              Toulon will at least have to travel down the road to Marseilles and they do not travel well. They will be rested we will be battle hardened. We have the inner belief to go to the South of France and win.

                              Leinster are not the team they were a few seasons back and our pack are well capable of beating them up.

                              Toulouse are the ones that would worry me. They have pedigree and tradition in this competition and the knowledge, experience and belief that has been passed on from great players of the past who have been there and done it all. Very much like ourselves.

                                Ya definitely a double edged sword but Coughlan , Killer and Zebo might have something to say about being "good enough". Purely with the red tinted glasses on ,the more Munster players at home the more we can work on this Penneyball and the less players will have to adapt when they come back.
