Notes:

  • Llanelli Scarlets become only the fifth team in the history of the Heineken Cup to win all their pool matches (after Wasps in 1997-98, Bath in 2000-01, and Leinster in both 2002-03 and 2004–05). They also set a record for most points earned in pool play since the competition adopted a bonus-point system in 2003-04. This record would be broken about two hours later by Biarritz.
