    Rugby union chiefs have insisted the Heineken Cup could still be played with English clubs next season.

    The European competition is in doubt after the English sides voted to follow their French counterparts and withdraw.

    Yet there is still hope the situation could be resolved and Rugby Football Union chairman Martyn Thomas and Leicester chairman Peter Tom have said the parties are prepared to meet to discuss a solution.

    Tom added: 'There would have to be meetings in a very short period of time in which all of the current issues can be agreed.

    'I don't think we can continue in the way we have before with lots of different sets of talks</rte:></DIV>
