Do you need a knife, fork, spoon or glass for that?
Fingers, it's a bread dish filled with cheese and eggs.  Georgian wine also has a good reputation as well.  Getting there appears the only downside.

Until recently I thought the same. Dutch age grade rugby is really taking off. They brought a team over to LLandovery last year good skill sets fit and big. Their national centre is based around Amsterdam (I think)

Surely we could get a plane between us it might have propellers and four wings with a pilot in large goggles and white scarf but I’m up for it. 
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

Clermont Hotel booked with free cancellation so have something in the diary. Will need to think about how to get there.

Would quite fancy another trip to Castres but it’s probably a bit tight timewise to do both. 

No one has mentioned why on earth we are playing Edinburgh when they are in our league and not playing Gloucester - different league and 2 hours away for a bumper crowd and big atmosphere.

Has EPCR explained why they’ve gone against their rules?

They haven't, this is taken from the announcement of the format & also the draw:

The EPCR Challenge Cup will be competed for by 18 clubs with eight representatives from the URC, six from the TOP 14, two from the Premiership, plus two invited clubs which will be announced shortly. (See clubs below)

The clubs will be drawn or allocated into three pools of six with two TOP 14 clubs in each pool. Clubs from the same URC Shield and from the Premiership, as well as the two invitees, will be kept apart during the draw.

Clubs will play four different opponents home or away with same-league matches being kept to a minimum, and only impacting clubs from the URC. The four highest-ranked clubs from each of the pools will qualify for the knockout stage.
