I've completely lost track of who's where next season. Are we in with the big boys or in the Challenge Cup?

We are 2nd tier side in Heineken. Have outlined possible opponents. Qualification was based on the 16 game Pro 12 which ended in March.

Actually not that bothered as it means we might get another crack at the Bic Biro which again is the closest we’ll get to silverware in the coming years ahead.

Of course there is! There's the Continental Shield. Sure isn't that one of the reasons that things were taken from the ERC and given to EPCR - to promote and encourage rugby throughout Europe with the inclusion of a tier 3 competition.

Interesting you mention the Continental Shield. The Rugby Europe Super Cup was launched this morning which will basically replace it. 8 club sides from Russia, Portugal, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Georgia and Israel.

Thanks for the info Neill, strange there is no Romanian team involved, or to a lesser extent German.

Your man Hans Peter Wild than owns Capri Sun was pumping money into German rugby for a while.

In 2007, Herr Wild established the charitable Wild Rugby Academy foundation for promoting rugby in Germany, with the aim of raising German rugby to a world-class level. In addition to promoting youth rugby, Hans-Peter Wild also focused on supporting the national rugby team. In sporting terms, through the support of the Wild Rugby Academy, he managed to bring the men’s national team almost as far as qualification for the Rugby World Cup. However, he terminated his collaboration with the German Rugby Federation in 2017 as he found their organisational structures insufficiently professional to achieve success on an international scale.

I'm surprised EPCR aren't suing FIRA.
