It would be nice to not have a second English team in our group, although I realise there's a significant chance of that happening.

I suppose playing eight pool matches would give us a chance to score enough points to qualify. (Sm100)

as far as I can see we are most likely to get either Racing or Glasgow as second seeds - 30 % for each

there is an outside chance or Monpellier, Lyon, Munster or Scarlets - 10% each

once our second seeds are chosen - the third seeds will be the opposite;

If a French side - then its Edinburgh (60%) or Munster (40%)

If not a French side - then its Toulouse (60%) or Lyon (40%)

The fourth seeds are I believe totally random - Toulon, Bath, Gloucester, Cardiff, Ulster at 20% each

so if I had a choice - Glasgow, Toulouse and Ulster please ; very good chance of 24 points
I don't really want the pool of death ; Monpellier, Munster and Toulon

Last year, it got to the final 2 balls of pot 4.. 50% chance of a trip to Venice.. 50% chance of Northampton.. We know what happened next. Was grumpy for the rest of the day...

Hopefully better luck this time around.

Probably as easy a draw we could've hoped for. Should really be hoping for a home quarter

Ugh. I still have nightmares about Cardiff.

Packed train journey down from warwick uni, Watching Johnny Wilkinson tear us apart, then a queue of several thousand at the train station home leaving me stranded in the city...

Nice draw. Lyon will bring back a lot of fond memories.. Wonder if we can recreate the atmosphere of 2016

Can't really argue with that draw.Think Pool 1 is this year's 'Pool of Death's and Pool 4 could be a bit tasty.

Not sure we wouldn't have hand-picked that group. 1 chicken, 2 chickens, 3 chickens etc...

For travel, pool 5 wins by a country mile in terms of places to go for a weekend if you're a Newcastle fan.

Yes it does thanks. Just hoping Edinburgh is left until winter and we can have a trip to France for October

JO'G - I know, albeit I'd say 90 mins. There and back in a day, ideal :-)

OR top place to stay if you want to.

We could have hardly been closer to the scene of our 3 finals!
It’s the group of plastic rather than death.

Leinster must feel that winning doesn’t net them anything . First place qualifier and they ended up with us as 8th, then top seed and they get that pool

Oh well, ‘‘tis the lot of European champions

The absence of favourable seeding for the holders was a necessary facet to get the revised structure in place. The seeds from each league had to be given an even chance to reduce the chance of a dominant team/country monopolising the comp.
