Always torn between wanting to see the big teams come play at the Rec and wanting us to get a group we can get out of..

Leinster, Clermont, Glasgow for example would be great to see some of the best teams in the other leagues at the Rec. Would we be able to make it out of that group though?

We didn't get through sadly when we had Wasps, Toulon and Leinster and that was a very hard group where we had been in an Aviva Prem final the year before and would have had better confidence going into it than after this season (albeit that season ended up becoming a trainwreck)!

Post-Lions tour could be a funny old season for a number of Brit teams. I'm still waiting for those 1-2 signings that could tip us from decent to properly competitive against anyone, but remain optimistic about our prospects.

Scarlets and Toulon in our group, Pool 5.

Not bad, considering! And an away trip to Toulon will be fantastic.

Hoping for Treviso to make up the group...

Scarlets and Toulon so far - one more team to come. Glad we avoided pool 2 with Saracens and Clermont!

We've got Scarlets and Toulon.

Perfect excuse for a nice little trip to the French riviera

Treviso!

Scarlets, Toulon, Bath, Treviso.

Thank you, Austin Healey. Fantastic group for me/Bath!

Its actually a pretty even draw, no real pool of death though hard to see anyone but Clermont or Sarries making it out of their pool.

Geez we did well out of that! A pretty good pool all things considered despite it being quite competitive. Hopefully Toulon do not recruit well and fade again, Treviso should be a sure thing and Scarlets will be the surprise package I'd guess.

I'd think Pool's 2 and 3 are most competitive and hardest to get out of and we could well see a big name team struggle to make it out the group if they share too many points during the group stages.

Let's hope we get a good run in the competition this year and build well on the bit of progress we've made this year! COME ON YOU BATH!

Not impossible to imagine winning 2 away games there, which gives us as good a chance as any.

Wasps will be very happy with their pool. We've done pretty well too, though Pro12 winners and Toulon are hardly pushovers. Pool 3 definitely the most evenly matched, any of those teams could make it out.

Any group with an Italian team in it stand a chance of 2 going up.

Toulon two years ago was great except no rugby! So looking forward to a game there!

Treviso could be a lot of fun especially fitting in a few days in Venice!

I don't think our group is an easy one at all. Scarlets were way better than Ospreys at the end of the season playing some very attacking and open rugby to beat both Leinster and Munster. Toulon were close to winning the Top 14. So there is no guarantee at all we will get out of the group.

Scarlets and Toulon were in the same group last season so that should give the Bath analysts some interesting videos to watch.

Mind you, the way Toulon have been getting through coaches who knows how they will play.

Treviso was our very first European away game back in 1996/7. Still friends with some fellow travellers on that trip - can't have been more than 20 or 30 of us. Those were the days.
