AFTER AN ENTERTAINING final weekend of Champions Cup pool action where the possible knockout pairings seemed to change every few minutes, we now know who will be playing in the quarter-finals on the first weekend in April.

It was hard to know where Leinster’s draw with Wasps would ultimately leave them but after some riveting rugby in Montpellier and Bath today, the Irish province secured that all-important home quarter-final.

Saracens could have also booked a home tie had they beaten Clermont this afternoon but the French side powered past them to earn the right to host their last eight encounter.

Here is the full line-up, which will be played over the weekend of April 3/4/5.

  • Racing Metro vs Saracens
  • Toulon vs Wasps
  • Clermont vs Northampton
  • Leinster vs Bath

Toulon will be heavily favoured to beat Wasps but the other three encounters should all be crackers. The semi-final draw has also been made.

  • Toulon/Wasps vs Leinster/Bath
  • Clermont/Northampton vs Racing/Saracens

Toulon vs Clermont looks the most likely final pairing after that draw but we still have a lot of great games to look forward to.

The Challenge Cup draws were also made and Connacht could have a home semi-final if they get past Gloucester.

  • Gloucester/Connacht vs Exeter/Newcastle
  • London Irish/Edinburgh vs Dragons/Cardiff
