James Hook has steered Perpignan to the top of the pool with 33 of his side's 53 points in the opening round defeat at Gloucester and the bonus point win at Stade Aime Giral over Edinburgh. That win, along with Munster's Thomond Park triumph over Gloucester, maens that everyone has won a match in the pool.
Perpignan's two bonus points have carried them to the top of the table and they hold a one point lead over Munster going into the back-to-back rounds in December. They travel to Thomond Park on Sunday, 8 December for what will be the eighth meeting in the tournament between the two clubs.
Only two points separate Perpignan at the top and Gloucester at the bottom of the pool, which means there is all to play for in December and beyond. Gloucester will head to Edinburgh in Round 3 when they will seek to return to winning ways after going down 26-10 in Limerick against Munster.
The atmospheric Stade Vélodome in Marseille looks set for a 40,000 plus attendance for the Heineken Cup semi-final clash on Sunday, 27 April between reigning champions, Toulon - gunning for a fourth European final in five years - and Munster Rugby, who have reached a record 11th tournament semi-final.
