Path to the final: Here is the full Champions Cup quarter-final draw

Could it be an All Irish Champions Cup final on May 13?

That scenario is very much on after the full quarter-final draw was revealed today.

While Connacht agonisingly bowed out with defeat away to Toulouse, both Leinster and Munster will have home quarter-finals against Wasps and Toulouse respectively on the weekend of March 31/April 2.

A Leinster win would see them play either Clermont or Toulon in the semis with Munster on course to play Saracens or Glasgow Warriors in the last four.

In the Challenge Cup quarter-finals, Bath face Brive while Gloucester will play Cardiff.

Ospreys play Stade Francais and Edinburgh welcome La Rochelle, who are second in the Top 14 table and qualified for the last eight as one of the best three pool runners-up.

European Champions Cup quarter-final draw: Clermont Auvergne v RC Toulon, Leinster v Wasps, Saracens v Glasgow Warriors, Munster v Toulouse.

Challenge Cup quarter-final draw: Bath v Brive, Gloucester v Cardiff, Edinburgh v La Rochelle, Ospreys v Stade Francais.

All ties will be played on the 30/31 of March and 1/2 of April.
