Their players might secretly be thinking that but their finances certainly wont be. Massive fine, a year in the Championship and then another year at least (and likely at most I'll admit...) out of the Champions Cup is a lot of lost revenue for a club whose finances weren't in the best place anyway.

As a comparison. Tigers in no way should want to win the Challenge Cup from a playing perspective. There would be nothing for Tigers to gain on the field by going away to Leinster or Racing, shipping 50 points next season. It would represent a boost in revenue that the clubs will be direly hoping for if this admittedly poor Tigers side can scrape a win out of the Challenge Cup when every other side in the quarter finals except Castres are already qualified for the Champions Cup through their respective leagues.

Their finances were absolutely fine. That's how they were able to break the salary cap.

Gloucester have had two dozen phases of possession in the Quins 22. Quins have had no phases in the Gloucs 22. Quins have conceded more penalties, had less possession and territory and had a man in the bin.

But Quins lead 21-3 after 35 minutes. Bizarre game!

Yes Glaws have been having a shocker - and the officials haven't been much better ...

Well Quins won 28-15 in the end. One of the strangest rugby games I've ever seen. Do think the officials should have been stricter on Quins' cynicism, and perhaps a second YC wouldn't have gone amiss.

Wasps have a good lead but tough run-in over the next to game. Bristol could probably get 10 points from their remaining games. It’s going down to the wire for sure.

Indeed, I reckon Glaws would have gone over from one of the rolling mauls in the 1st half if Quins hadn't constantly infringed, and they conned the officials more than once ... having said that their handling tonight was dreadful.

Cippers had a shocker. It was like watching his Rebels highlights reel.

Reminds me of Hook. When he was good he was one of the best players on the pitch; but when he was bad, boy was he ever bad.

Given how loosely cips and Gloucester played it was nice to see so much control by smith. Really starting to stamp authority on games.

Saracens have some cracking young kids coming through dont they.

A nice season in the champs to get blooded, and come back up to mix in with their big guns...and they could be stronger than ever.
