A tough trip for Leinster this weekend!

Leinster's Champions Cup continues with a trip to Glasgow, for what is likely to be an epic battle with the Scotsmen. I watched Exeter Glasgow, and it was hardcore - eye wateringly physical, with defenses nearly impossible to crack. I'm not saying we can't beat them, but we are going to have to play out of skins to do that. A losing bonus point is probably a more likely target.

Munster get to take on Racing, in a re-run of last season's games. On paper, Racing have a better time, but you'd have to brave to bet against Munster at home. Ronan O'Gara recent touchline ban :) doesn't apply to this match.

Ulster face a very difficult trip to LaRochelle...but if they play as well as they did last week, they certainly have a chance.

 Connacht should build on their good win last win with a visit from Worcester. Find Donnacha O'Callaghan's interview on the dangers of all the contact today's players face if you can.
