The Sharks were considered rank outsiders in Pool 1 before the start of the tournament, and might yet finish well adrift at the bottom of the qualifying Pool. Yert their performance in the opening Round at the AJ Bell Stadium, suggests that they will have a major influence on who ultimately qualifies from Pool 1 for the quarter finals, even if the Sharks do not make it themselves. Clermont Auvergne, who were beaten in last season's semi-final by Saracens, after losing the previous season's final against fellow French side Toulon, got off to a losing start themselves.
