For me, up to the Qs it's ok,

For the semis either make it neutral ground as best can or decide on a criteria/formula fir a home tie.

Faffing about with a predetermined alternative that can provide unequal allocation is just plain daft.

Leinster have a distinct advantage whilst the other semi provides better joint opportunity but if Clermont had won it would've been to their advantage.

Seems to me that the emphasis on best revenue is greater priority than fairness for one team or another?

Gate receipts dominate and now the performance reward has apparently also been downgraded inflate Potential shareout which is now more in favour of the francais irrespective.


From what I heard Saracens would have nominated Twickenham which could be considered a home venue for them but they have a history of bad ticket sales in semi finals(25k,17k)so plumped for the Ricoh after some pressure from the EPCR. The Organisers want gate receipts but they don't want half empty stadiums either in the crunch parts of the competition.


How msny people realise that the EPCR shareout has been reshaped although Pro14 has guaranteed amount? ;)
