Can only see one team getting out of our group. Lots of teams are going to take points off of each other.
Need to target winning all of our home games, and getting some bonus points away.

Going to be very difficult, but possible.
Wont get to an away match in November or December, so hopefully the January game means something (and isn't Gloucester)

I had to have a quick nip of the hip-flask once Pot 4 came out.

Very familiar opponents, although this new version of Toulouse is a very different kettle of fish to the one we faced previously.

First round is usually early October, so we're due to have an away trip to Southern France this year,
I'll pack my shorts and suncream...:woohoo:

I suppose if we get Toulouse away in Round 2 (Nov 22nd) and Montpellier away in Round 3 (Dec 6th) or vice versa, we will all just spend two weeks in the south of France?

I think there are 2 matches in November, 2 in December, and 2 more in January this year because of the World Cup
