    TBH

    There is no easy teams in it now say ZEBRE and even they can overturn you if they hit it right.

    But great to see us there as a top seeded team

    These were the seedings

    Here are the rankings for the Champions Cup draw

    1 Saracens, Racing 92, Connacht
    2 Exeter Chiefs, RC Toulon, Leinster
    3 Wasps, Clermont Glasgow, Warriors
    4 Leicester Tigers, Montpellier, Ulster
    5 Northampton Saints, Toulouse, Scarlets
    6 Sale Sharks, Castres Olympique, Munster
    7 Bordeaux-Bègles, Zebre Rugby

    It seems how you finished in your league determined your seeding

    Ok so its toulouse in connachts group and not toulon. Thats better, as ye said most groups are tough but toulouse arn't as good as they were a few years ago. Connachts home record is usually good, so i think they could target one of the 3 runners up places.

    I think Ulster would be happiest of the Irish and Munster be the saddest
