IF a daunting trip to Toulon in their Heineken Cup clash wasn't enough for Leinster's fans to deal with, a late Sunday kick-off time will require even further intrepid navigating.

The details of the four Heineken Cup quarter-final ties have been revealed and the Blues will go toe-to-toe with the reigning European champions on Sunday, April 6.

The fixture is the only one of the four to be scheduled on the Sunday, with both Munster and Ulster kicking off in their respective ties a day earlier.

FLIGHTS

The Leinster game gets underway at 5.30pm French time (6.30pm here).

The late starting time is far from ideal for fans who now must choose whether to rush back home on Sunday night after the game and arrive back to Dublin in the early hours of Monday morning, or miss out on a day's work.

There is an airport in Toulon which is served by Ryanair who operate flights from the Mediterranean hotspot to London Stansted only, however last night the airline hinted that additional flights may be laid on for the occasion.
