Unless something untoward happens are we welcoming the Warriors back to AzP for the QF?

I thought that Ulster were going to screw it up at half-time. But tiggers let the game slip so it's still on.

The only chance to avoid it now is if Toulouse decide to throw the game against bath. Nice position for Toulouse, getting the option of who they want to play away. Us, racing or Leinster. 3 bad choices but they can contrive their result to get the one that they want, woo hoo hoo, the one that they want

In other news exe are making a fist of it at thomond. One try away from a major upset

Thought Munster and Connor Murray in particular were very poor. Exeter looked the better team and can consider themselves unlucky. Would have preferred Ulster to Glasgow, for the sake of variety if nothing else.

I’m with you it would have been good to have a different opponent, will I be ‘straining at the leash’ to make the 1/4 final against Glasgow?

Ug, the seeding shouldn't allow it. We need more than another bonus point win to make it three

And why not? lets make it a hat trick against them and even better result- even better than the drubbing we inflicted on them in last quarter final.

If Toulouse beat Bath with a BP and Leinster beat Wasps, then I think the QFs are:

Saracens v Glasgow
Racing v Ulster
Leinster v Toulouse
Edinburgh v Munster

The first three are all repeats from the pool stages.

To at least offer the chance of variety, maybe EC need to rethink the 1-8, 2-7 etc setup for the QF pool Maybe they shoud be seeded 1-4 and then the 5-8 been drawn out of a hat.

I think that if I'm Toulouse I would be doing all I could to avoid getting s bonus point today.
They know exactly what they will get in Dublin so a quarter final in Paris looks a much better option. Not least because the majority of their supporters will be able to get to it, with Dublin expensive and tricky. They can do Paris by coach in a day

17 to go, Bath only 7 behind... could they save Glasgow from another trip to AzP

All going to plan for Toulouse. If they lose they play us. TBP win and it's away to Leinster. Neither would be very appealing to Toulouse.

So 30 minutes into the second half Toulouse lead 20-10 with only 2 tries. No hint of collusion either! smiling smiley

Full time 20-17 so Glasgow confirmed.

Bit of a shame that so many QFs will be repeats of group games but well done Sarries anyway.

I think they'd want to avoid twix/Wembley/Olympic stadium. The club's get no control of ticket sale strategy and have had issues with half empty stadia before. Doubt spurs will ever want rugby played at WHL as the plastic pitch isn't big enough so we'd have to use their grass. I'd think the madejski or stadium mk would be at tje top of the list

There was very strong rumours from Spurs fans that NWHL have/are going to bid to hold the Champions Cup final. Also when I ordered my London Stadium Ticket I asked them if it was going to held at NWHL originally and was told they "couldn't say".

So many? What have I missed?

I understood the quarter finals to be as follows:
Edinburgh (group 5) v Munster (group 2)
Leinster (group 1) v Ulster (group 4)
Racing 92 (group 4) v Toulouse (group 1)
Saracens (group 3) v Glasgow (group 3)

Isn't it just our game that's a repeat of the group stages?

Well worth having a look on the Warriors site if you appreciate positive feedback; it's not just us who value our Pioneers. After the last QF I read c120 comments complementing the AP setup and stating what a fabulous day they'd had - heart warming especially considering the result.

The Pioneers are excellent ambassadors for the Club, especially when you consider some of the po-faced stewards you meet elsewhere (Wembley anyone?).
