Pool 5 tough for Falcons. Two neighbouring French teams from the south coast plus Cockers and Deano getting together again.

Sarries got the easiest pool?

Initial thoughts are that we will do incredibly well to qualify for the knockout stages, needing at least two results away at Scarlets (Pro 14 finalists), Ulster (Ravenhill is a miserable place for us) or Racing (Top 14 semi-finalists) and to win out at home.

Leinster and Wasps are likely qualifiers from Pool 1, with Bath not likely to pose much of a threat as usual and Toulouse still a shadow of their former selves.

Pool 2 should see one of Exeter or Munster qualify, with Gloucester unlikely to provide much of a challenge and Castres liable to give up away from home.

Pool 3 is interesting, you would expect Sarries and Glasgow to be tops here but all of the teams could potentially take points off each other.

Pool 5 should, in theory at least, be a cakewalk for Toulon; Edinburgh and Falcons will put up a fight but I can't see them doing enough damage, but Montpellier could be a dark horse here.

Far too early, hilarious predictions:

Leinster, Wasps, Munster, Sarries, Glasgow, Racing, Toulon, Montpellier

Our group seems the dullest from a fun storyline point of view. The All-English games should be good as should the Newcastle-Edinburgh "derby", hopefully they'll stick that one in the back to back slot. With the final being in Newcastle i'd think both Cockers and Deano will be eying up a run at a shock title.

If Ulster can't bounce back from what was a disastrous year for them then i think on paper they are about the weakest side in the competition. Both them and us suffer from previous success in that there's nothing exciting about qualifying, whereas Edinburgh, Cardiff, Gloucester, Newcastle i'm expecting to have a real buzz around being in the tournament.

Unfortunately best runner up pools could come down to who chucks the towel in earliest of the teams to get off to a bad start, but maybe not, getting to 17-18 points and 2nd in a group and you've got a very good chance, the days of needing 20 are past i think.

Scaaaaaaarlets fans think it will be easy and the Ulster lads don't fear us either, nice to get the team functioning and give everyone something to think about when visiting Welford Road this coming season.

The consensus from 4 of us in Burgundy is that's a load of bollix - we aren't getting out of the group and don't even get a nice trip to compensate.
