That will be us relegated then

With Clermont Auvergne beating Bath in the European Challenge Cup final this afternoon, it will mean that Harlequins will be contesting the Heineken Cup next year. Which is nice. Except for the fact that the last three teams relegated from the Premiership (Quins, Leeds and Northampton) all played in the Heineken the year that they went down. Oh dear not a good omen.

Personally although the extra money will be good for the club I would much prefer playing in a competition we have a chance of winning, rather than travelling to France or Ireland to get thumped. Oh well I will still be there.

On a unrelated note well done to Will Skinner and Jim Evans who made their debuts for England A last night against the USA, in Jim's case a try scoring one.
