LEINSTER WILL HOST Saracens at the Aviva Stadium in the stand-out tie of the Champions Cup quarter finals, while Ulster face an away trip to Toulouse. 

Leinster’s dubious reward for finishing top of the seedings is a repeat of last year’s final, against a Sarries side that followed up relegation from the Premiership with a 27-24 win at home to Racing earlier this afternoon. 

Ulster, meanwhile, must travel away to Toulouse after the French side’s 35-14 win at home to Gloucester this afternoon. That result confirmed Sarries’ presence in a competition they are likely to fully train their sights upon, given they have nothing to play for domestically. 

Elsewhere, Exeter Chiefs will face Northampton Saints at Sandy Park, while the last-eight has also thrown up a mouthwatering all-French clash between Clermont and Racing, the former enjoying home advantage. 

The ties will be played on the weekend of 3, 4, and 5 April.
