    I ain't feeling too cocky. Then again I never do ahead of a must-win game.
    Tis but a scratch.

      We can win this one. Who are we getting in the QF if we win and if we lose?

        1. Clermont
        2. Leinster
        3. La Rochelle
        4. Munster
        5. Scarlets
        6. Ulster
        7. Racing
        8. Toulon/Exeter

        Pique should be along to give you a proper assessment of the likely 8.

          Footage of the game below should be compulsory viewing for the team - think that was a Sunday lunchtime kick off as well.

            No one if we lose

            I'm not overly confident of winning let alone BP territory - Castre still have a chance and all sorts of weird permutations happen in round 6 every year

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

                Only if Castres don't get a winning one and Tiggers beat Racing.

                  Pique should be along to give you a proper assessment of the likely 8.
                  Here's how I see it :

                  1. Leinster 24pts
                  2. Clermont 23pts
                  3. La Rochelle 21pts
                  4. Munster 21pts
                  5. Scarlets 21pts
                  6. Ulster 21pts
                  7. Racing 20pts
                  8. Toulon 19pts NB - The Nigels wont be happy.

                  So the QF's :-

                  1. Leinster v Toulon - Dublin
                  2. Clermont v Racing - Clermont
                  3. La Rochelle v Ulster - La Rochelle
                  4. Munster v Scarlets - TP

                  Semis :- Leinster v Munster - Dublin
                  Clermont V La Rochelle - France

                  Edited as per Piquet

                  Final - Clermont v Munster - Bilbao 12th May 2018

                  Champions 2018 - Munster.

                  There, now you have it.

                      No. The winners of 1v 8 meet the winners of 4v5
                      and 2 v 7 meet 3 v 6

                        RCC G6) Mun V Castres Olympique. Sunday-13.00 @TP or Sky Sports

                        I think we’ll win Sunday, but not sure about getting a bonus point.

                        When we’ve lost at home in the HEC/ERCC, we’ve just been outplayed/outsmarted by a better team on the day - Tigers (x2), Clermont, Ulster.

                        What worries me is that we might get ambushed like by Quins because we don’t treat Castres with enough respect.

                          Even if you don't agree with the assumptions, there's a detailed attempt at projecting points by a Chiefs supporter here:

                          http://www.rugbynetwork.net/boards/r...?1098,16207077

                          I think Tigers will put out their strongest team and give it a rip vs Racing in front of their own crowd.

                          Not at all convinced that Ulster will beat Wasps in Coventry.

                            Scarlets could easily come to TP and win.

                              Indeed. It's not as if they haven't done it before.

                              And if we were tempted to move the game to Lansdowne, they've done it there as well.
