Leinster have been confirmed as one of the top seeds for next season's inaugural European Rugby Champions Cup along with Heineken Cup and French champions Toulon and English table toppers Saracens.

The draw for the pool stages of the new competition will be held in Neuchatel, Switzerland at 12.0 tomorrow, with the seedings coming from the participants' finishing position in their domestic leagues.

With the competition set to be run with five groups of four, the three champions will be joined by two of the beaten finalists from the three leagues who will be drawn tomorrow, with the rest falling into place from there. Munster will be among the second seeds, while Ulster could join them in that pot if the draw goes their way.

Connacht, meanwhile, will go into the Challenge Cup draw.
