Again, the "pilot fish" of the Challenge are Castres Olympique, Glasgow Warriors, Harlequins, Northampton and the new Italian Club, Parma Zebra, who will sgtart in the RaboDirect/Celtic League for the 2012-3 Season.
Harlequins. In first place after the regular season of the English Premier League, Harlequins finished ahead of Leicester Tigers, Saracens and Northampton. In the team semi-final they beat Northampton 25-23 before winning the title against the prestigious team, Leicester Tigers, 30-23.
