Assume Munster win, and if they either deprive Wasps of a bonus point or get one themselves, that settles it.

If Wasps get a bonus point and Munster don’t then Munster have to win by at least five points to go top table on score difference. (Edit)  This is actually incorrect, as I’ve discovered. Whoever has the most tries between the two games go through, if they’re level on tries then whoever has the most points between the two games go through so Munster have to score more tries, (they’re even at the moment) or they have to win by more than one point to go top of the table. If Clermont Auvergne get a bonus point win against LLanelli then you could possible have a three way tie at the top and then it gets luverly and complicated.

A draw is useless, or a draw + four try bonus means god knows what as regards best runners up places as Clermont could also be there tied and score difference next weekend deciding it.  A best runners up place is down to next weekends results and it’s in the lap of the gods….. Gloucester/Ospreys look like having the first runners up place settled in any case going into next weekend.

Couldn’t be simpler really, and as miracle matches go, the odds aren’t that bad…… We’ve pulled worse out of the bag.
