HEINEKEN CUP TIES ANNOUNCED

Munster will host Ulster and Leinster will host Cardiff Blues in the quarter-final round of the Heineken Cup.
Munster ended the pool stage as top seed, with Leinster finishing as second seed, guaranteeing both provinces home quarter-finals.

Ulster secured the second-best pool runners-up spot and qualified for the quarters as the last seed.


Munster will host their quarter-final at Thomond Park, Limerick, while Leinster will most likely play their last eight tie with Cardiff Blues at the Aviva Stadium.


Edinburgh host Toulouse and Saracens host Clermont Auvergne in the other quarter-finals.

The winner of the Munster/Ulster quarter-final has been drawn to have home advantage in the semi-finals against the winner of the Edinburgh v Toulouse quarter.

The winner of the Leinster/Cardiff Blues quarter-final has been drawn to play away to the winner of the Saracens/Clermont Auvergne quarter-final in the last four stage.
