Details of the draws for the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup.

Leicester travel to Toulon

Leicester will travel to Toulon in the quarter-finals of the Heineken Cup after defeating Toulouse 9-5 in their final Pool Two clash on Sunday.

Leicester rugby director Richard Cockerill said: "We just have to manage what is in front of us.

"You would prefer to be at home, but we have got to get past Toulon. They are an immense side, a fantastic team.

"It is going to be a huge event for us and another huge day in Tigers' history."

Munster swept past 14-man Racing Metro 29-6 on Sunday and knocked Leinster out of the Heineken Cup in the process and the next task is a clash at Harlequins in the last eight.

Clermont Auvergne host Montpellier and Saracens take on Ulster in the other quarter-final contests in European club rugby union's top competition.

The Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-final line-up is also known.

Bath host Stade Francais, Gloucester meet Biarritz, Perpignan clash with Toulouse and Wasps tackle Leinster for the right to progress.

Wasps rugby director David Young said: "You could look at it and say it's not much reward for topping our pool to then be given a draw against the Heineken Cup champions.

"But on the flip side, what a hugely exciting prospect it will be playing them at home. It is a game which, if we can win it, would really put us on the map."

The draw has been made for the semi-finals for both competitions but there is plenty of work for all the clubs to do before then.
