Heineken Cup 2009/2010

Looking ahead to the new campaign.
The draw for the Pools will be made at a date yet to be decided in the week beginning June 8th and Munster will be one of six sides in Tier 1 along with Bath, Biarritz Olympique, Leinster, Leicester Tigers and Toulouse. The advantage of being in Tier 1 is that the sides cannot meet until the knock-out phase of the competition.
