Interesting looking tournament this year.
Some of the pools will start to take shape after this weekend.
Munster and Ulster have must win games - home matches against likely contenders for pool top spot. Either team loses and you would say that whilst qualification to knock outs is still very much on the cards, the path beyond quarter and certainly semi final becomes dramatically more challenging.
Toulouse were impressive in the opening round without getting into top gear. Connacht should be aiming for a losing bonus point but against a try scoring French side at home it's going to be a very tough ask.
Leinster can settle for a lbp more so than Ulster / Munster as they are away but given Lyon's performance against Newcastle I wonder are the Premiership side the greater threat. An away win this weekend doesn't really change the pool much, albeit if Northampton lose away to Benneton then suddenly there is daylight between Leinster and the chasing pack.
