Huge Bath fan but not sure where they are at the moment .
Some good performances, some indifferent and the squad is still awaiting completion (Donald, Barkley, Eastmond) with a pretty woeful set piece
The one thing in their favour is a pretty good defensive record, but I'm not sure that that will be enough.

You cannot base Montpellier on current form because their most recent form was without their 10 or so internationals. If they get a taste for it, they will come second in the group. If they get beaten twice early, they will lose interest, like French teams usually do.

Bath. I feel this level is too much for them, challenge cup rugby seems to suit them better, they will struggle against the top class opposition.
Glasgow, are a growing team with some real talent, however, the Scottish never seem to be up for the European weekends and have unfortunately always let their supporters down at this level.
Leinster, class in abundance, this team just doesn't seem to stop producing some of the worlds best players. O'Driscoll's absence with not dent their confidence.
Montpellier, while I don't see them progressing, I do see them wanting to make a name for themselves in Europe. But like all classic French sides, away games could be an issue.
1.Leinster, 2.Montpellier, 3.Glasgow, 4.Bath

BOD out for season so this will affect Leinsters potency in mid-field. Very few line breaks against Munster last weekend and I am concerned about misfiring backline as a whole. Hope players such as Nacewa, Fitzgerald and Kearney start hitting the line cleverly and at speed...

@ crunchfit - so basically not like Andy Powell at all then. ;@)

Montpellier last! PR really sticking their necks out on this. I see them upsetting both Glasgow and perhaps Bath.

Gorgodze is one of my favourite number 8s. He's like Andy Powell, except stronger, more effective, not idiotic and very intimidating (one of the most intimidating players in world rugby). If he played for better club and national team, he'd be much more well known.
