All to play for in the Champions Cup

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

This week the Saints’ attention returns to the European Rugby Champions Cup, and with two pool games remaining there’s everything to play for.

Racing-92 may have put themselves in control of Pool 3 by winning their rearranged match against Glasgow on Saturday, but every point will matter in the chase for second place and a possible spot in the quarter finals.

Just one point separates the Saints (10 points) from Glasgow (9) ahead of next Sunday’s Round 5 Gardens match, but when you look across the tournament as a whole the situation becomes increasingly intriguing.

Three of the runners-up will qualify for the knockout stages, and here there is precious little to split the teams across all five pools.

Pool 2 is set to go down to the wire, with Ospreys and Exeter tied on 10 points. In Pool 1 Ulster have given themselves hope with a memorable win in Oyonnax, but still have to travel to Saracens next weekend.

Meanwhile in Pool 4 Stade Francais have 14 points, but have to visit Thomond Park where they will face a Munster outfit who will no doubt be intent on revenge after their disappointment at Stade Jean Bouin and host the currently unbeaten Leicester. 

And in Pool 5 there is still all to play for, with Wasps and Toulon separated by just the one point ahead of the teams’ clash at Stade Felix Mayol.

So there’s a lot that is hinging on next Sunday’s game, and your support can count when the Saints host the Pro 12 champion Warriors at home.
