Heineken Cup draw 2008/09

Heineken Cup semi finals

At last, it’s a proper seeding system – no more ridiculous pools with three top sides that robs the competition of some of the finest teams before the knockout stages.

The groups look much more even for next season, although Pool 3 looks particularly exciting.

One thought on “Heineken Cup draw 2008/09

  1. The draw does look a lot better this year. Sale have a really hard group though. 2 away trips to France and the other to Munster. Not easy!

    I’m already looking forward to the new season, and the Heineken CUp is usually the highlight for me.
