    Toulouse first Munster second

    Sadly the Heineken Cup is drawing to a close after 19 brilliant years.

    Using the Grigson-Casey method with 20 points for a win, 15 points for a final and 10 points for a semi - Toulouse (with 4 wins, 2 finals and 4 semis) accumulate 150 points over the life of the completion and are not surprisingly the most successful team in the competition’s history.

    Munster with 140 points (2,2,7) are the 2nd most successful, Leinster with 100 points (3,0,2) are 3rd and Leicester with 95 points (2,3,1,) are 4th.

    What a pity that none of these top 4 clubs whose fans and teams have reflected what has made the Heineken Cup so special are not playing in the final Final.

    Big thank you to the ERC for delivering such a brilliant competition and let us hope that those who sought to rubbish this great tournament and risked destroying it will grow to understand the fantastic legacy they have inherited.

    I still can't believe it's all over. The method in how the new competition is being formed will always leave an element of resent in my mind. Things won't be the same.

        Ah J. It's a rugby competition not somebody who's just nicked your scooter and left a photograph of themselves doing it.

          Don't worry J we will be pooled with Sarries or some other malevolent organisation and you'll be able to vent your frustrations on the evening of the game.

          The second this new tournament kicks off it'll be just like its always been, Munster and its support wanting to kill everyone.

            It's quite simply a new rugby competition that the English and French clubs think will be all theirs, nothing new there so. We were the underdogs before and if the truth be told we love it.
            So lets remember all the good times of the Heineken Cup and get stuck in to the new competition with the same opponents.

              And establish a fearsome unbeaten run at home.

                      I'm sure they'll probably spend a lot of money tying to rebrand it etc, but I'll still probably call it the HC.
                      They'd safe themselves a lot of time and money if they just had them sponsor it and kept the name.

                          Thanks too to Heineken for their long standing support of the competition. Without them the whole concept might have died in its infancy.

                          Remember the English clubs tried to strangle it in its cot back in 98/99.

                          Old habits die hard I suppose.

                            It's in the English DNA. They cant help it.

                              And the f*cking pricks are back with the begging bowl trying to get Heineken to save their bacon, I hope Heineken tell them to f*ck off.
