The runners up are place 6-8 even if they have more points than the pool winners.
But there are five pools, so one pool winner goes away.
Which looks like it will be us as we cannot get to 22 points.
But the most important thing is not to slip on the banana skin and actually win the pool.

Yes Worcester have qualified as group winners and a 4 point win against Stadt will see them get a home draw as we can match them on points they will have won 5 games to our 4 but if they were to lose then we get home draw. Simples

Actually, if you read the rules in the link I posted above, number of games won does not enter into the calculation, even for teams in the same pool. For qualifiers from different pools with the same number of match points, the ranking is decided by:
(i) the best aggregate points difference from the pool stage; or
(ii) if equal, the number of tries scored in the pool stage; or
(iii) if equal, the club with the fewest number of players suspended under Disciplinary Rules in the pool stage; or
(iv) if unresolved, by drawing lots.

So, if we get a try bonus point and Worcester don't we end up on the same number of match points. We currently have an aggregate points difference of +50, Worcester are on +20. Assuming there's no wild scenario where we score 4 tries, they score 3 but somehow they manage to improve their points difference by more than 30 points plus whatever our winning margin was, then we would be ranked above them in the rankings for the QF draw.

As Camquin says, given that we've only won our home games so far and have only won 2 away games this season (I think) let's just get the win first and then worry about the permutations

The EPC Rugby website is showing both ourselves and Worcester with a capital Q.

Worcester play their final pool game later today at home against Stade Francais

I think a capital Q means qualified as group winner and a small q means qualified as runner up. One team with a capital Q (probably us) will play away in the quarter final.

Currently our mates at Stade are helping us out! They're leading Worcester 21 points to 7 and it's not even half time!

EDIT Warriors have clawed back a try to put them 14-21 with 30 mins gone...
