THERE WILL BE no Friday night at Ravenhill when Heineken Cup quarter-final weekend rolls around.

However the top seeds from the European Cup’s pool stage, Ulster, will take top billing on a rugby-packed Saturday April 5 with three of the four quarter-finals being played.

Munster kick off the last eight at 13.30 with their home tie against Toulouse at Thomond Park.

Then Sky’s cameras will focus on France to see if Leicester Tigers can breach the Clermont fortress of Stade Marcel Michelin (16.00) before Saracens aim to knock Ulster out at this stage for the second year running at 18.30.

After all that rugby, Leinster’s trip to Toulon will be the last fixture down for decision, but at 16.30 on the afternoon of Sunday April 6, it promises to be a cracker.
