It appears to be decided on which QF you are in and since people have mentioned a trip to Clermont that suggests it's either them or Saints. Apologies for loose logic.

It would be  the winner of Clermont Saints game

If Clermont win its their place , If Saints win ,  its at the Stoop because of the seedings

Clermont 1
Wuss 4
Quins 5
Saints 8


Other semi is Sale v La Rochelle or Bris

I'm torn. I'd like to go to Clermont, but obviously home semi is better

Speaking with GB last night after the game and he said whatever happens itís away
Just been looking at prices if itís Clermont, and unless you fancy a 9 hour drive, cheapest way is Eurostar around £250, hotels are circa £80 a night at the moment

COME ON YOU SAINTS !

No it's not! If Saints win today it's a Home Semi for us, so while I'd like to visit Clermont, in this case I's prefer a Home Semi (plus I just realised my passport expired last November, so I doubt I'd get a new one before the Easter weekend if we were playing Clermont!)

Ok thanks thatís cleared it up, think the chance of Saints getting the win is very slim, but hereís hoping as a home Semi final would be excellent

Well, Clermont have taken it pretty seriously so far and they're 13 points clear of 3rd in the Top 14. If they want it I can't see any of the other teams left having much of a say in it.

Clermont are a quality side. They have internationals and experience in nearly every position, but Saints ran them close in the group stages. Today will be a useful yardstick, but suffice to say weíll need to play a lot better than we did against Worcester.
