The IRFU's report on the draw says we are definitely playing Cheetahs, but they don't say why that is, so I assume it is a guess rather than any insider knowledge.

In the meantime, I've actually come around to the IRFU's point of view and decided that we will travel to Perpignan and Amsterdam .

A lot of the airports around Perpignan (Carcassone, Girona, Perpignan) don't have flights from here in winter so BCN and Toulouse would be the options. If going overland, there is a sleeper train from Paris but it only goes Friday and Sunday nights in winter. I might do that depending on the timing.

So my original prediction was right but the updated one was nonsense. It was too logical.

Zebre home Sat Dec 7th
Perpignan away Sun Dec 15th
Lyon home Sat Jan 11th
Cardiff away Fri Jan 17th

Not the worst. We avoid a repeat trip from last season, plus Lyon would have been potentially tricky away. And we don't have two trips to Parma to choose between (I'll stick with the more pleasant May option)
