Poll: Will Leinster top Pool 2 of the European Rugby Champions Cup?

On paper this should be a relatively straightforward task for Matt O’Connor’s men.

RABODIRECT PRO12 champions and three-time European kingpins Leinster face an easier Champions Cup group than their Irish counterparts, where they will come up against Conor O’Shea’s Harlequins, Castres and London Wasps.

Harlequins’ open season form has been patchy to say the least, while European cup rugby has failed to inspire performances out of French side Castres in the past.

Elsewhere, bottom seeds Wasps had to come through a home and away play-off against Stade Francais to qualify.

Will it be a straightforward task for Leinster? Who’ll top Pool 2?

Poll Results:

Leinster (1291)
Harlequins (417)
Castres (114)
London Wasps (74)

Here’s how Leinster’s pool rivals Harlequins are set before the Champions Cup kick-off
