Champions Cup Qualification-A Question?

King Prawn Bhuna 19 Mar 2018 16:13 pm said..

I've just read on the Connacht site that they think that if permutations went right and both Challenge Cup finalists and the other semi finalist had already qualified then the losing semifinalist in the Challenge Cup would qualify for the Champions Cup. Is that ever right ?

No it’s not right on any level. Probably wishful thinking on their part.
If the winner has already qualified then the place is taken by the next best placed team in that league.

The 20 th place goes to
i) Champions Cup winner, if not already qualified
ii) Challenge Cup winner, if not already qualified
iii) Challenge Cup losing finalist, if not already qualified
iv) Play-off match between the losing Challenge Cup semi-finalists, if not already qualified

v) Highest ranked non-qualified club by virtue of league position from the same league as the Champions Cup winner

So in iv) above. If one had already qualified then the other would go through. Would be unfair to kick them out just because their opponents in a play off have already qualified.
