South African sides are now part of the NH competitions and Heineken Cup, so they would come from the 8 NH sides. The 7 Super Rugby sides will be 4 Kiwi / 3 Aussies or 5 Kiwi / 2 Aussies etc.

Ray Donovan wrote: July 21st, 2022, 10:53 am Am I totally mistaken in saying that Gloucester play a lot of home European matches on a Friday night?

For some reason I have that thought in my head. I could be way off!
Their Challenge Cup pool and knockout matches last season were split 50/50 Friday and Saturday.

Re: European Champions Cup [Most Improved]

Rugby seems to like creating new and even more complicated competitions between this and the new Nations Cup starting in 2024 and being played every 2 years which is replacing the traditional international summer tours and of course the changes to the pool stage of the Champions Cup etc.
