Join Alex and the team for action and analysis
Alex Payne and the boys will be talking about the Heineken Cup - and watching the last English team to win the competition - on Thursday night's Rugby Club.
Ieuan Evans, Shaun Edwards and Tom Rees will reflect on last week's Heineken Cup clashes, which saw Harlequins beaten at home by Scarlets, Ulster edge out Leicester and reigning champions Toulon thrash Glasgow in France.
Plus, they will look ahead to this weekend's second round, where matches include Munster versus Gloucester, Northampton against Ospreys, a Zebre-Connacht showdown and a meeting between Leinster and Castres.
The headline act, though, is Saracens' duel with four-time Heineken Cup winners Toulon at Wembley and our esteemed panel will devote ample time to previewing that encounter.
The live action on Thursday night, however, sees Wasps - who lifted the Heineken Cup in 2007 after overcoming Leicester in an all-English final - battle Bayonne in the Amlin Challenge Cup.
Wasps thumped Viadana 90-17 in Italy last week with Tongan back William Helu running riot, but Bayonne - languishing in the lower reaches of the Top 14 at present - impressed, too, vanquishing countrymen Grenoble.
So to see who keeps their 100 per cent record intact and for the informed views of ex-Wasps favourites Edwards and Rees, watch The Rugby Club, 7pm, Thursday, Sky Sports 1.
