There's significant prize money at stake home quarter final or not.
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

I think munster defeat means a scarlets win probably gives them a home quarter final draw? munster now 16 points. if scarlets win they are 21 points if munster beat castres they are on 20 points but if munster get bonus 21 points so all square?

Exactly, and there is ULSTER. The 3 of us are fighting for 2 home QFs.
Ulster on 17 with a tricky away game to Wasps - THIS GAME IS HUGE!! So HUGE, I may go and support Wasps! They CAN'T ROLL OVER!! No way. An Ulster 5 pointer means we need 5 as well or we're competing with Munster fpr the 4th spot.
Racing depriving Munster a 4 try BP was HUGE as well, because the most they can with a 5 pointer against Castres is 21 points.
So if we win and Munster don't get a BP we'd have a home QF. Or if Wasps beat Ulster and we win - home QF. If we win no try BP (21), Munster win with BP (21) and Ulster win away in Wasps without try BP they have 21 too!!
So to avoid the 21 point Russiam roulette - lets just win with 4 or more tries. Simples Big smile

I'll be surprised if Ulster win at Wasps, but it's not impossible. All I care about, really, is that we win against Toulon - after that, we'll just see what comes.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

There's also La Rochelle - I'd expect them to get a full haul at home against Quins, which would put them on 21, and ahead to Ulster on head to head if they're tied. And I can't see Munster failing to score 4 tries at home against a team with nothing to play for.

I think we need to win with the bonus point for a home quarter - Munster, Ulster and La Rochelle all play on Sunday so will know exactly what's needed if points difference comes into the equation.

I think that's the attitude. Racing's win today has only helped us if we win next win. It also means that 18 points probably won't be enough for a runners up spot. If we beat Toulon, we should be very happy. Anything else would be a bonus.

Yes Dafydd, La Rochelle can overtake Ulster because they have the toughest game. It's quite amazing there isn't a SUPER SATURDAY scenario where teams have no idea what's needed. This could be deemed disadvantageous to us, playing Saturday. Personally I rather we play Saturday so we can concentrate 100% on 4 try win.

Just playing Devils Advocate, but imagine having 3 tries and kicking a late penalty to secure the win and qualification., it would be heartbreaking if Ulster are in the same position but go all out to get a 4th try and with it, get the final home qualification! I'd be Cry ...........I'd take a 6-3 win and any sort of qualification, but wouldn't it be ace being home with 2 more wins required, some on neutral grounds, sun shining, heads up rugby, could be 2017 all over again!!!

Of course, ospreys could change the equation too - if they beat Clermont, it pretty much removes the chance of us being a best runner-up, but it does mean any Scarlets win would be enough for the home quarter.

True, but a big home gate wouldn't hurt

Hypothesising is good fun though Mr Ian LOL

Indeed! In fairness, I'd love for Ospreys to qualify, just not at the expense of Scarlets! Heresy, I know but what a boost for Welsh rugby it would be to have two teams there...

Not sure how Wasps will go now they're out. Would have had them done to beat Ulster, unfortunately I think we'll need a bp win to get a home QF. It's do-able but its going to be a huge task

An all French and PRO14 set of quarter finals would be rather mouthwatering 😎🍻

Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

And would probably highlight that the Aviva standard isn't as good as some make out
