    I saw this on FB and thought it would be a bit of fun to share, I'm not sure I'd agree with all the choices below, but what do people think?!


    Top Tier seems good, but then 2 seems off. Get the sharks in there and Racing.2ONa0fG

    Sale, Bristol, Bordeaux, and Edinburgh above last years Super Rugby finalists seems... questionable.

    Is that meant to be based on current form, or historical, or some combo of both?

    There was absolutely no context given on it in FB group I yoinked it from. But lets say current form

    on current form (ie 2019 / 2020) theres no way the rebels should be in tier 6, should be tier 4 at least..... thats the biggest glaring one for me.

    stormers and sharks are very matched, so id have them in 3 with bordeaux dropping to 4

    as a highlanders fan id fancy my chances against any of those tier 3 sides.

    Very hard to judge any of those Japanese Top league teams, just haven't seen enough of them. But it definitely feels like the Dragons need to be down there, maybe bring the Blues up one

    Seems very European biased

    Montpellier in tier 2 is very questionable. Bristol should be no where near as high as that and at least half the teams in tier 4 would beat Sale.

    It's not historical as Leicester, Bath, Wasps and Ospreys are in the tier below Scarlets and Glasgow.

    Leicester have 10 English league wins and 2 HEC, Bath 6 and 1, Wasps 6 and 4, and Ospreys have 4 Celtic League/Pro12 wins.

    Scarlets have 2 Celtic League/Pro12 wins, and Glasgow 1.
