Meeting again: Ulster & Saracens

Ulster, Clermont, Toulon and Munster will host Heineken Cup quarter-finals on the weekend of 4, 5 and 6 April.

Toulouse missed out on a home quarter-final after both Munster and Clermont secured bonus point wins on Sunday to book their home spots.

Saracens will travel to Ulster in a repeat of last year's quarter-final, with three-time champions Leinster on the road against last season's victors Toulon.

Leicester Tigers will be charged with trying to bring Clermont's unbeaten streak at home to an end should it stretch into the beginning of April, a run that currently stands at 71 games.

Finally, Munster will play host to four-time champions Toulouse who are likely to be without the services of inspirational skipper Thierry Dusautoir.

The semi-final draw has also been made, with Ulster/Saracens and Toulon/Leinster set to play at home.
