Worth saying that the prize for winning this is (most likely) a trip to Munster for a place in the final!

I have just checked that on euro rugby website and actually is not the case. I am not quite sure how, but if Glasgow win, they get a home semi against Munster or Toulouse.

That is a prize worth playing for!

I recommend the wiki article on the Champions Cup. It is to give proper encouragement for the away side. If the away side wins, they get home advantage over a team that was home at the quarters. If both away teams win, the higher rated side gets the home draw. If both home teams win, the higher ranked side gets the home draw.

I have no idea.

If both home sides win quarters, then it goes with seeding. If an away side wins, then they get the home semi. If both away sides win, then it goes back to seeding.

I guess it is just reward for winning an away knockout game, which to be fair, does not happen very often!

Kelly Brown just tweeted that he's waited for 7 years for a game which has genuinely divided his loyalties.

Beshocked is right. Anything is possible. Nobody at Glasgow will be intimidated by this - they'll just really be looking forward to it. Playing Munster would have been dull by comparison. Glasgow have exactly the game to take it to Sarries - it won't be an arm wrestle from their perspective. They'll be on the same 4G pitch that they play on at home and be looking to strike run from everywhere. The only Jeff team that plays to a broadly comparable game plan is Wasps.

It is also correct to say that 6 Nations injuries are going to play a huge part in this. Glasgow has 16 players in the Scotland squad, plus they'll lose Sarto (if fit) and Favaro to Italy. What is for sure is that all test players will be thrown straight back into the mix for this. In Toonie's eyes, it's the biggest game of the season for him.

[quote=" In Toonie's eyes, it's the biggest game of the season for him.[/quote]

At the start of the second half on Saturday I bumped into Toonie. I took the opportunity to thank him for all the work he has done for Glasgow. He paused for a moment, looked deep into my eyes, held my gaze then said,

"It's not finished yet."

More than ever I am convinced that the European Cup is his only goal this season and qualifying for the quarters, beating Racing home and away, giving Tiggers two right thumpings all count for naught. He wants/needs to win this. And I'm beginning to believe he will.

As Orwell said,
"But that light I saw in your eyes
No power can disinherit
No bomb that bursts can shatter
The crystal spirit."

Believe.

I remember at various points in the evening turning to the Brumeister and both of us asking,
"What just happened?"
I don't remember Schiz buying a round however.

p.s. Ian, I've got Caz chasing up his contacts at Sarries for tickets.

Feckless and Princess want to come. TigerLily (She of the Jersey Boys story) wants to be a Warrior. Pippetto wants to come. How many tickets can you and the Hagia Sophia get?

In fact it's just occurred to me reading that article: Lee Jones could become the first Scottish player playing for a Scottish team to feature in two HC/EC semi-finals!

Jones currently playing better than when he was capped, but unfortunately for him, a different level of competition these days and can't even get in the squad.

Keep playing like that though and he will get back into the frame. I would probably have him ahead of Hoyland on current form, a better all round game.

That's fair. Hoyland is a very sharp attacking winger but he has much to learn in terms of positioning. I think we can assume that Seymour has one wing nailed down for the foreseeable, so Jones is really battling it out with Visser and Maitland, neither of whom have been particularly impressive in Scotland jerseys for a while. As you say, Jones should just keep him head down and opportunities will come.

1. Which Scottish rugby player and occasional international has played Racing 92 eight times, and was victorious on five occasions.

2. Which two Scotland international players scored their first tries for Scotland before scoring for their club?

3. Which two Scotland international stand-offs have fewer points scored than they have caps?

4. Which six players received their first caps for Scotland in 2016?

5. Who received his first and 100th cap against Samoa?

6. Who was capped first for Scotland - Richie Gray or Richie Vernon?

Well, happy Monday afternoon folks. It's strange, I really just want the quarter-final to happen right now. Maybe some time after 5pm, so I can get the flags out and kit up. Basically, regardless of the result, I can't bloody wait.

Thanks everyone who took part in the quiz, the answers are as follows:

1. The one and only Lee Jones, Laird of Welford Road and Defender of the Faith.
2. Adam Ashe and Finn Russell (There was a good suggestion of Grant Gilchrist, but it seems he scored one try in 2011-2012 for Edinburgh, before scoring against Canada in summer 2014).
3. Finn Russell and Ruaridh Jackson
4. In order: Fagerson, Sutherland, Jones, Dell, Bradbury, Price
5. Sean Lamont
6. Richie Vernon, having been capped against Fiji in November 2009. Gray senior was capped against France in February 2010.

RE the Selkirk Pixie, I'm afraid his time as an internationalist has finished (Unless we suffer some horrendous sting of injuries)

He's just not an international level player! Our wingers are Tennessee Tam and Sean "I'm scoring for both club and country" Maitland

One day I'm hoping that Tim "The Turnstile" McMisser will recapture his old form now that he's got a bit more freedom. I'm not saying Harlequins is the place to do this, but it certainly wasn't Edinburgh

Tim his well and truly re-captured his form for 'quins. The problem is that when he has played for Scotland lately he is a bit of a passenger. This is strange given that Vern likes to get his wingers involved!

You appear not to have mentioned Sean "fastest player in the Glasgow squad" Lamont. Was that deliberate?

Have any other London-based Scots found any decent boozers that regularly put on Glasgow games (I suppose Edinburgh too if you count what they play 'rugby').

Other than my local which isn't exactly central, Philomena's in Holborn will show it unless there's something else on and sometimes the Alexandra in Clapham but you tend to be at the mercy of the roundball fixtures.

It is a real problem - I've missed the last 2 Glasgow games because I can't find a pub showing it.

On Saturday we'd been at one boozer for 4 hours so thought we'd earned the right to ask to put the rugby on, which they agreed to. The guy was just about to change the channel when one bloke said 'are you not putting the Man City game on?' Rolling Eyes

My brother's friend owns the 6 Yard Box in elephant and castle (it is a bar in a shipping container) and he'll always put Scottish sport on if we ask him, apart from the Munster game where the London branch of the Aston Villa supporters club took over the whole bar!

RE the Selkirk Pixie, I'm afraid his time as an internationalist has finished (Unless we suffer some horrendous sting of injuries)

He's just not an international level player! Our wingers are Tennessee Tam and Sean "I'm scoring for both club and country" Maitland

One day I'm hoping that Tim "The Turnstile" McMisser will recapture his old form now that he's got a bit more freedom. I'm not saying Harlequins is the place to do this, but it certainly wasn't Edinburgh

You appear not to have mentioned Sean "fastest player in the Glasgow squad" Lamont. Was that deliberate?

Alas, the Legend that is Sean of Lamont has been allowed to slowly wind down making the occasional appearance off the bench for his club. He's done enough to deserve his retirement.

He's still a better winger than Jones though

My favourite London boozer for rugby was the http://www.thornburycastle.uk.com/ in Marylebone. The landlord and lady, Gary and Maggie, are / were huge Wasps fans and regular Lions followers, who were always happy to show any game they could and were incredibly cool about putting different games on different tellies. Without over egging the pudding, it used to be a cracking place to watch rugby with actual rugby fans, rather than the ignorant hangers on, who you often find shouting at the telly and expressing their anti scots views

Nowt wrong with watching rugby with the uneducated! It's a way to get them involved!

Best game I saw in a pub was when we beat Englandshire at home. The first 10 mins saw no interest in the game from the local wendyball followers but by the second half I had the whole pub shouting "drive" every time we set up a rolling maul.

Agreed, I just dislike the bawstewards who are unnecessarily anti scots and bring things like referendums and ownership of north sea oil up when you bamboozle them with offside calls and forward passes

I'm yet to watch a Scotland game in a London boozer (apart from the Georgia game but we took over the whole shipping container) so have all this to look forward to!

I am going to Twickers for the first time so that should be an experience...

Should have said it before but congratulations to Glasgow for making their first European Champions Cup quarter final. OK

Been very impressive in the pool stages. On paper it looked like a tough pool but Glasgow have managed to get through and really make a good impact.

If you're in Twickers, head down early doors and head to the http://www.whiteswantwickenham.co.uk/ and if you're really early pop into the http://www.taylor-walker.co.uk/pub/barmy-arms-twickenham/c0462/. Both on the river. The Swan is a top boozer

Good suggestions. We're going with someone who lives in Richmond and has been to many games before so she's got plenty recommendations!

The Maple Leaf in Covent Garden used to be handy for rugby, the staff there all preferred it to football, however it is central, expensive (particularly problematic for RDW) and often full of tourists.

I know it's a bit anti-social, but Virgin have this little profit making venture whereby you can get Sky and BT Sports on your TV at home. I'd look into it.

RDW, I shall be at Twickers with Mr Bru and the delightful Hagia Sophia, as well as Nippy Barry the ex-scrum half who will be our token Englishman. Why don't we meet up for a pre-match refreshment? Or a Quote Function Seminar?

London, generally speaking, is awful for Rugby pubs. One of the worst things about living here. I have been here a year and a half now and am yet to find a decent one, so would also be grateful for any suggestions.

Having said that, the Alexandra in Clapham used to get a good turnout (think this was mentioned before), but I haven't been there for a few years and even still, you would probably have to compete with football.

The Bedford in Balham is always good for Rugby and they have the Banana Comedy club and disco after to help drown and dance away your sorrows

Does anyone have access to a list of Glasgow players' nicknames? Save me from spending the next decade trawling for it.
I'm thinking of sending WeePee a copy since he seemed to find Shrek giggleworthy.

I've been there a few times. Good rugby pub in the afternoon. Prolific meat market in the evening.

There used to be a list but stuffed if I can remember what post it was on

Plus it would need updated with players like ZooZander breaking through! Wonder if Batman would see the funny side of things???

Fortunately for us, if he doesn't Jimbo will get the blame.

Should we make a new one then?

I'd suggest also including Edinburgh players so they don't feel left out!
