EDF Energy Cup Final 2009
The EDF Energy Cup is an English & Welsh rugby union knock-out cup competition featuring all 12 Guinness Premiership clubs and all 4 Welsh Regions. Prior to the 2005-06 season, the competition was open to all English clubs. Bath have won the cup ten times, with Leicester Tigers the second most successful club with six, including their recent win over the Ospreys in the 2006-07 final.
The 2007/2008 season is the first to have unregionalised pools, after EDF's decision to abandon the idea, although each pool still contains one Welsh region and three English teams.
Pool A: Gloucester, Wasps, Newcastle Falcons, Newport Gwent Dragons
Pool B: Bath, Leicester Tigers, Sale Sharks, Cardiff Blues
Pool C: NEC Harlequins, London Irish, Worcester Warriors, Ospreys
Pool D: Bristol, Leeds Carnegie, Saracens, Llanelli Scarlets
