Heineken Cup & Challenge Cup

What a great weekend for English clubs in Europe. Only lost 1 game and draw 1 game everything else a win. Welsh clubs only managed 1 draw in the Heineken cup and lost all the others. The French clubs going 50-50 on win-lose. I think there is a certain amount of buoyancy in the English clubs after the world cup and quite a bit of low morale in the French and Welsh sides.

In terms of strategy indicates the possible impact of morale in the English clubs due to the world cup and the lack of morale in the other clubs.


I read a great article on planet rugby about the French and English clubs.

I thought that the French clubs had a similar salary cap to the English, I thought it was a European directive!! Obviously I was wrong, but it doesn't seem to be helping the French by having the extra money available.


Please to see Leicester win well away from home and was very interested in hearing from the new coach, that he wanted them to play smarter not harder. I think Leicester may have gotten a little too carried away with the power rugby concept in the past. Nice to see a tactical style of play coming to work with the raw power the Leicester has in its squad.

What a great result for Bristol this weekend. Keeping Stade de France to Nil is a no mean feat, I hope they can carry on with his form in the rest of the Heineken and EDF cups.

Back to the normal Premiership this week and Leicester have got Leeds. I am hoping for a good score, be interested too see who is in the side to play against Leeds.
