The opening weekend of Heineken Cup action saw a largely predictable set of results, if not some of the margins.

Exeter’s proud home record always meant they stood a fine chance of beating Cardiff, but no one expected a demolition job on the scale of the first half thwacking they gave Lions captain Sam Warburton’s pink-clad troops.

The one major shock was at Murrayfield, where Edinburgh turned their PRO12 form on its head with a home win over Munster, who had looked in good form in the victory over Leinster just a week earlier.

And so, it was a weekend where the order of big names straightened itself out a little.

The Heineken Cup, perhaps for the last time, is under way, and it’s great to have it back.
