Clermont and Toulouse reach the top 14 final, doesn't change much but means we can't play Lyon.

Did that a while back for the Bourgoin game. Messy to say the least although most of our carriage joined in with our awful rendition of Chanson D'Amour

Racing in tier 3 is going to cause some troubles for some!

Possible Gloucester opponents:
Tier 1: Leinster, Toulouse, Glasgow, Clermont Auvergne
Tier 3: Connacht, La Rochelle, Ulster, Racing 92
Tier 4: Sale, Ospreys, Bath, Benetton, Montpellier
Clubs who cannot move tiers are in bold


Are the tiers confirmed yet?

they won't be until the draw as the 2nd & 4th placed teams can be in (2nd) tier 1 or 2 & (4th) tier 2 or 3; as there are 3 leagues and 5 groups

Of those mentioned the best we could hope for in terms of progressing would be Glasgow, Connacht and Benetton - I think there would be potential of going through as group winners.

In terms of away day fan experience; Leinster, Racing and Benetton would be my preferred places to visit. The Paris stadium looks phenomenal!

There is only one answer I need; who are we likely to play in the final?

As we can't play them in the group stages (both teams finished 3rd & are in the 2nd tier) it would be a miracle...

Correct, the only other thing we will know is if Toulouse or Clermont will definitely be in tier 1 after the top14 final.
