The Pro 14 has certainly won the U.K. league contest.

There weren't before either - even Treviso were more competitive than in previous seasons, though they still didn't quite get a win.

not according to your own posts and other fantasists....it will be rough for the Scarlets and must keep their feet on the ground which I think they will. All this hype wont help.

Not sure about other posters, but I never said that the Scarlets would make mincemeat of all their opponents, just that they had a reasonably good chance of beating them.

So semis on this bass

Club 1 v Club 8 (QF1)
Club 4 v Club 5 (QF2)
Club 3 v Club 6 (QF3)
Club 2 v Club 7 (QF4)

NB The format for the semi-final matches in the Champions Cup recognises performances by clubs during the pool stages as well as the achievement of clubs winning quarter-final matches away from home.

The winner of QF1 will play the winner of QF2 in one semi-final, and the winner of QF3 will play the winner of QF4 in the other semi-final as follows:

Semi-final 1: winner QF1 v winner QF2
Semi-final 2: winner QF3 v winner QF4

Leins/Saracens v Scarlets/La Rochelle
Munster/Toulon v Clermont/Racing


Irish Final in Bilbao??

Well. Leinster are on fire just now and it's difficult to see past them winning the whole thing but they are playing Sarries. I bet you they would like to be playing anyone at home other than the reigning European champions. Though of course they would never admit to it. Munster have to favourites against the other French sides at home as well but both sides are capable of winning there. Whatever happens it's nice that there are no repeat pool games which I think rather puts a dampener on a tie.

There's truth in that in the Top14, Clermont are an example although they are still in it.

But the crowds, media and sponsors love it! Hmm ...

Well I'll admit to it. The prospect of playing them at home doesn't enthuse me, but we just have to make the best of it. We're at home, in front of a huge crowd and it's a tie we have to take charge of, from the start. Can't be chasing a game against the Saracens.
