Tasty ties, home draw vital and will,probably determine the semis, or am I being too presumptuous ;)

Good to see the Pro 12 teams not meeting in the Quarters.

The one quarter I'd be most confident about would be Munster vs Toulouse and potentially Clermont Toulon.

Leinster should beat Wasps but Wasps when they get going are a bloody dangerous team. Sarries versus Glasgow will be difficult to call as both will be on a pitch they are used to so Saracens one advantage is wipped out and what's interesting is if Glasgow win while they are rewarded with a home semi they will have to play away form there 3g pitch which could nearly cancel out that home advantage.

I think Toulon could be the surprise package, with Giteau fit and Tusisova back in business
Clermont follow a pattern of being supreme and then go to sleep but their home ground is 7pts start. Despite their impressive squad they'll miss Fofana his link up with Lamera has been A1.

Leinster / Wasps ... difficult one .. Leinster home tie should sway it!

Sarries will beat Glasgow especially if some of their injured players return, they'll have to find a new venue wont they? EPCR limit for 1/4s is 15k. If they go to Wembley as they have before one could fancy Glasgow with their wonderful attacking style

Munster / Toulouse : Munster odds on and could go all the way!

So for me :

Hum/Hah/Hmm Toulon, Leinster, Saracens, Munster

It's good to see three Pro12 teams in the QF of the Champions cup, only shame is there's no Welsh team there, but that's nothing new. ( Scots in fairness have one team in each cup QF). Still we have two teams in the Challenge cup, and I think Ospreys have a strong shout in this one.

Challenge Cup QF's ;

Ospreys v Stade Francais
Bath v Brive
Edinburgh v La Rochelle
Gloucester v Blues

That's a fair call, as you say IF they want it. Or do they have their eyes fixed on a much bigger prize, the T14. What's behind their impressive rise, over a short period of time, on what looks like a modest budget in French terms ?
