Heineken Cup Resumes Group Play

Posted: January 9, 2014 at 9:40 pm

The Heineken Cup is back with 2 group games remaining for each team before the quarterfinalist are determined and matches resume this weekend.  The top finisher from each of the 6 groups along with the top 2 second place teams advance to the elimination round.

Ulster, Heineken Cup champions from 1999, are the only team with a perfect record after 4 matchdays.  They top Pool 5 but have only a 3 point lead on Leicester Tigers.  The other pool leaders are Leinster Rugby, Toulon, Toulouse, Clermont Auvergne, and Munster.

The biggest match is probably Toulouse hosting Saracens at the Stade Ernest Wallon.  The 2 sides are tied on 15 points at the top of Pool 3.  Check out all the fixtures.

And with the new year we have a new series of videos of The Heineken Rugby Show preparing fans for the coming action.
