Saracens have announced that they will play Ulster in the Heineken Cup quarter-final at Twickenham in April.

The match will take place at 18:30 local time on Saturday, April 6 after consultation with local residents and partners saw a plan to possibly expand their new home Allianz Park declined.

"We look forward to playing this important match at the home of English rugby, a ground that many of our players know extremely well. It is absolutely clear that people want to see big teams playing big matches at big stadiums, and that is precisely what we will deliver at Twickenham," said club chairman Nigel Wray in an official statement.

"We did consider the option of playing this showpiece match at Allianz Park, our brand new home stadium in NW4, but, in consultation with local residents and our partners at the London Borough of Barnet, we have decided to settle at the new venue before applying to stage a one-off event with a larger capacity."
