LEINSTER just can't catch a break in the Heineken Cup as they have been fixed to play Toulon at Stade Félix Mayol on Sunday April 6 in the last quarter-final, writes Des Berry.
This comes after the five-day turnaround from Rounds 5 & 6 of the Pool where Matt O'Connor's men felt aggrieved at the scheduling. Toulon have chosen to play this one at home as opposed to taking it to Nice.
Top seeds Ulster get headline billing with the late kick-off on Saturday at home to Saracens, Munster getting the first of three Saturday quarter-finals against Toulouse at lunchtime.
