Seems fair.
Good news for us I guess.



Yes, Champions Cup is where we want to be.
 It'll be a great incentive to up our game from recent performances.

 
I don't think there will be a champions cup next year lads


Appreciate your right to say that, but you have no substance to back up the comment.
 
 
Granted but no one has any substance to say there will be a champions cup
 
 
At the moment none of us have know either way.
 
 
I'll stick by my prediction there will be no European cup rugby next season and this seasons tournament will not be finished
 
I just can't see it happening if others can , that's fine be a boring place if we all agreed on everything

If EPC Rugby are still saying the 2019/20 competition will be finished, I’m sure they’ll be doing their utmost to make sure there will be a 2020/21 competition.
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.

It’s likely there will be a Champions Cup next season but in a different format and with less teams. Scarlets will be Wales’ only side in it
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Yes there's talk of 6 pools of 3 teams with 4 games to lighten the fixture load. Pro 14 may also be reduced to around a 16 match season with home and away against your conference rivals and usual local derbies against other conference regions. 

There does appear to be a growing optimism towards planning at least. Of course that could be very short lived if relaxation of the rules doesn't have the desired effect. Very small light at the end of a huge tunnel nevertheless.

If all goes well over the next few months, I can see everything falling into place other than the mass gatherings i.e. the crowds returning. I'm struggling to see how crowds can be allowd as this is what will push the infection rate back up, as we discussed in other posts.

Crazy if true - just another in the long line of incidents that prove the league is utterly corrupt and run BY the Irish, FOR the Irish. I expect the IRFU will pocket any prize money if there is any due to this.

When do you propose to finish the league?they have won 13/13 are 20 points ahead of 2nd place so I see it as the logical solution which leaves only Europe to sort out,to suggest that it's corrupt is silly,would you have said that if we were on top?

I'd rather it be null and void and based on last season again to be honest.

Do you think the Champions League will just be awarded to Barcelona because they're doing really well this year?

Perhaps we should thank our lucky stars if this has been agreed. Having lost to Edinburgh and Munster our next match would have been away to Connacht, and coming as it did on the Friday after the Scotland match we'd probably have been short of a few of our internationals. 

Had we played Connacht, lost, and then fixtures had been cancelled, we'd have slipped to 4th and we  wouldn't be in next season's Champions Cup. PRO14 would have been represented by the Scots and the Irish. Perhaps we should be careful as to what we wish for.

I don't see how you can award a trophy to a team when there's a knock out element involved, I'd just leave it as no winner. I think European qualification based on the league standings would be fairer than going on last seasons tables though.

Let Leinster have it and us get champion's cup rugby. The outcome works for us.
There will almost certainly be a champion's cup next year if there is a TV contract for it.
We're still still here!

Yes, exactly my thought Waspy.  We will have come out of this quite well if we qualify on the back of current table positions. Not too worried about Leinster being crowned champions although I do understand some of the reservations being expressed. 
That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.

I thought they might have a giant, combined Champions Cup and Challenge Cup next season. That would solve arguments over who should qualify for the top competition.

I think that'd be a solution to the current situation.
Of course I'm biased.

if you null and void it we don’t make the champions cup (if there is 1)

So be it. I'd rather rugby union be competent and us not make the champions cup - than underhand just so we qualify.
