Luke Fitzgerald "disappointed" after Leinster surrender 14-point half-time lead
Leinster will have their fingers crossed that Montpellier can upset Toulouse tomorrow after they failed to guarantee themselves a home Champions Cup quarter-final against Wasps at the Ricoh Arena.
In the end, Matt O'Connor's side were fortunate to secure a 20-20 draw as Andy Goode's late drop goal went wide of the post.
Man-of-the-match Luke Fitzgerald was not happy that the Blues couldn't hold on after first half tries from Fergus McFadden and Isaac Boss had put them 20-6 up at the break.
"We're a little disappointed because I felt we were in control at half time albeit with a man down for th next 10 minutes," he told BT Sport.
"Credit to Wasps , they came back and had a lot of possession, which was something we didn't want them to have because they have so many dangerous ball carriers.
"There are some disappointing aspect but at the end of the day, we're through which is great."

"They defended pretty poorly in the first half and gave a much better account of themselves in the second half and we probably didn't attack as well."
"We're in the knockout stages and that's where we wanted to be. You gotta be happy with that."
Fitzgerald believes that the returning Cian Healy and Sean O'Brien will give Leinster a massive boost for the knockout stages regardless of where the game is held.
"We're happy to be in the last eight and we may be short of a home quarter-final, we will see what happens," he added.
"We have a lot of players coming back from injury who will help us and things will be pretty good. Every match will be like a final for us. A lot of teams will be disappointed to get us at home if that pans out. We've a lot of good feeling looking forward."
