Aviva carrot for Ulster

AN Ulster victory against Saracens on Saturday will earn them a semi-final joust with either Toulon or Leicester Tigers at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday, April 28.

The Heineken Cup semi-finals are played at venues designated by ERC and the clubs who will secure home country advantage in the last four were determined by a draw which was conducted in January.

Munster already know that, if they beat Harlequins on Sunday at The Stoop, they will face a trip to France to play the winners of the Montpellier/Clermont clash. That game, irrespective of the French representative, will take place at the Stade de la Mosson in Montpellier.
