This week's match writeup
is titled "Luck Of The Draw"

Blackrock sense history and start as they mean to go on

Daniel Evans - Bath Chronicle

A common thread from all the tries was that Munster ball carriers were able to get over and across the gain line, something that had been sorely lacking in their three match European losing streak prior to today. 
Raffaele Rocca - Pundit Arena

And as the eighth-placed seed, (Connacht) will face pace-setters Gloucester, who qualified as the top team after winning all six pool stage matches, taking 29 points from a possible 30.

Gregor Townsend can be pleased that his side went out playing the expansive brand of rugby that Glasgow have become known for during his tenure

They’re out of the Champions Cup but Glasgow scored one of the tries of the season today
