The Perpingan tie is the tie of the round for me,i watched them win the French Final last weekend where they defeated the perennial underachievers ASM Clermont Auvergne(a hatrick of final losses).It was a special win for the Catalan side as it had been 54 years since their previous victory in the competition The Brennus Shield been awarded to the winners. Perpginan were also noted this season for the signing of the All Black Dan Carter on a 6 month contract for a 5 figure sum so the club has a large budget .There is a possiblity that this tie with Munster will be played in Barcelona for financial reasons and the close ties with the Catalan region of Northern Spain.
