Munster’s reward for their six-try demolition is a home quarter-final to Toulouse while Leinster face the daunting task of travelling to Toulon.

The quarter-final pairings were finalised this evening after Clermont secured a bonus point victory over Racing Metro and will now take on the Leicester Tigers at the fortress that is the Stade Marcel Michelin.

Ulster were already assured of their number one seeding after their unbeaten run in the pool stages and were guaranteed to play Saracens, but the other pairings only became known this evening.

Rob Penney’s men kept up their end of the bargain with a bonus point victory over Edinburgh in the early kick-off and they will now face their great Heineken Cup rivals Toulouse in the last eight. The sides last met in the 2008 Final in Cardiff where Munster prevailed to claim their second title.

Leinster face a difficult visit to France to take on the reigning champions if they are to reach the semi-finals, though victory at Clermont two years ago and a recent victory at Castres fresh in their minds.

Toulon however have been building slowly after an underwhelming start to the competition and have yet to taste defeat in the Heineken Cup at the Stade Felix Mayol.

Heineken Cup Quarter Finals: (to be played on the weekend April 4th-6th)

Ulster V Saracens

Clermont V Leicester

Toulon V Leinster

Munster V Toulouse

Should Munster and Leinster emerge victorious they will then clash in a mouth-watering semi-final, while the winners of Clermont and Leicester will be Ulster’s reward if they see off the challenge of Saracens at Ravenhill.

Semi-final draw:

Ulster or Saracens v Clermont or Leicester

Toulon v Leinster v Munster or Toulouse
