Tier 1: Toulon

The ERC has officially announced the respective tiers for teams ahead of next Wednesday's Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup Pool draws.

Heineken Cup winners Toulon make their debut in Tier 1 alongside Clermont, Toulouse, Ulster, Munster and Challenge Cup winners Leinster.

Due to France having more teams in the elite competition, Racing will be drawn last into a pool with another outfit from the Top 14 competition.

Biarritz, Stade Francais, London Wasps, Bath and Brive occupy the top Tier of the Challenge Cup.
