Interesting that the EPCR are allowing you to play your QF at home despite not having a suitable size venue. Quite an allowance to make. For a club who are all about playing to the rules I'm guessing you'll be refusing?

Quote from the "Key rules" for this season's Heineken Cup:

2.4 The clubs ranked 1 to 4 will have home advantage for the quarter-finals as follows:...

No mention of capacity. Anecdotally it is believed that had Exeter been facing an Irish side then the game would have had to be played in a larger stadium to accommodate the away supporters but as it is Northampton it can be played at Sandy Park. Last season's Prem S/F was played to a full house but we have expanded since then.
