Heineken Cup seeding.

Postby big mervyn » Mon Apr 29, 2019 2:25 pm

Reckon we're about 3rd seeds as things stand, with the chance to improve that in the play-offs?

Pot 1: Pro 14 No 1, T14 No 1, Prem No 1, 2 of (Pro 14 No 2, T14 No 2, Prem No 2)

Pot 2: 1 of (Pro 14 No 2, T14 No 2, Prem No 2), Pro 14 No 3, T14 No 3, Prem No 3, 1 of (Pro 14 No 4, T14 No 4, Prem No 4)

Pot 3: 2 of (Pro 14 No 4, T14 No 4, Prem No 4), Pro 14 No 5, T14 No 5, Prem No 5

So could get Pot 2 by beating Connacht and could get Pot 1 by reaching the final.

Montpellier into Pot 4 of the draw, 20% chance of a return to the Med next season.

In the scenario Toulouse beat Clermont in the Top 14 final what way does that leave the pots?

Toulouse would be Top 14 No 1 and Clermont Top 14 No 2 in such a scenario. Toulouse would be in Pot 1 with Clermont also in Pot 1 except for the scenario where the Top 14 has 3 sides in Pot 2, then Clermont would be in Pot 2.

Thanks Neill, what scenario would mean France had three teams in Pot 2. What determines this?

Trying to get my head around this.... unsuccessfully

On the day of the draw, there is a mini draw before the main one which determines which league has teams 2, 3 and 4 in Pot 2.

Thanks Neill.
Seems to me, being in pot 2 doesn’t convey much of a benefit, if any.

Looking at possible draws, whether Ulster are in Pot 2/3 doesn't seem to matter. From a trip point of view, Pot 3 would be better as Gloucester/Lyon are then possible. Never been to Toulouse or Gloucester and Ulster have never played Lyon in the Heineken Cup.

Of the Pot 4 sides - Montpellier/Benetton/Bath would be good. Ospreys/Sale would be :roll:


Draw is next Wednesday of course.
