Who needs what and the various permutations by Pool in the Champions Cup
Sunday (3.15pm): Wasps v Ulster; La Rochelle v Harlequins
Do-or-Dai for Wasps. They must take a bonus-point win. Then if Quins beat La Rochelle and Ulster do not take a losing bonus point it will come down to head-to-head record between them and Wasps, with both on 17 points. Any win for Ulster and La Rochelle sends them through. Quins are out.
Saturday (3.15pm): Saracens v Northampton; Clermont v Ospreys.
A bonus point win for Saracens is very likely to send them through as a best runner-up on 18 points. Defeat Saints are long gone despite their impressive win over Clermont on Saturday.
Saturday (1pm): Montpellier v Leinster; Glasgow v Exeter
Leinster have already secured a home quarter-final having won all five of their matches. Chiefs will probably make it with a win at Glasgow on Saturday, but will want four tries and a bonus point to make absolutely sure. Montpellier are in the same boat as Saracens, needing a big win and some help from elsewhere.
Sunday (1pm): Munster v Castres; Leicester v Racing 92.
Victory for Munster puts them through to the last eight, but they may not have a home quarter-final,
depending on other results. A Racing win would mean they set the bar high for a best second place, which would be bad news for the English clubs in other pools. Tigers are long gone, having won just once, and Castres are struggling.
BT gave this round up after Sunday’s games –
Saturday (5.30pm): Scarlets v Toulon; Benetton v Bath.
Toulon, Scarlets and Bath all still in contention. Bath, after their home defeat by Scarlets, have the slimmest chance, needing a five-point win and several results to turn in their favour. The winners of Scarlets v Toulon on Saturday go through as table-toppers, but the losers could go out. Benneton are already out.
It would not be a huge surprise if there is only one Premiership side in the last 8 possibly not even that – any that do make it will face the prospect of an away tie.
