It's possible for us to win our remaining games and still not qualify.


Possible, but highly unlikely. We'd have 20 points (minimum). Based on the last 5 years of results, that'd be enough to see us through (assuming we finished second place in the pool of course).

17/18 - Saracens (8th placed seed) with 18 points
16/17 - Toulon (8th placed seed) with 16 points
15/16 - Northampton Saints (8th placed seed) with 19 points
14/15 - Saracens (8th placed seed) with 17 points
13/14 - Saracens (8th placed seed) with 20 points

I haven't gone back any further that 13/14, but I'd bet that 20 points would've been enough in most years prior to that too.

It's interesting too that Sarries have scraped through to the Quarters in 3 of the last 5 years. In 15/16 and 16/17, they won it back-to-back finishing top of their pool in both years and being seeded 1st and 3rd respectively. They're, at the moment, looking likely to be top seeds this year too.

You’re right that it’s unlikely we’d get 20 points and fail to qualify.

I should have left this in the quote.

Qualification isn’t in our own hands just yet.
