Champions Cup Quarter Final Draw

Champions Cup Quarter Final Draw

22 Jan 2018

The pool stage of the European Champions Cup is done and dusted, with Leinster and Munster both progressing to the knockouts.

Attention now turns to the quarter final stage, and after Munster's hammering of Castres in Limerick yesterday, the final eight were confirmed.

Leinster will host Saracens in Dublin

After six wins in their six games in the pool stage, Leinster are the top seeds and will welcome Saracens to the capital.

Saracens have won the last two Champions Cup titles and are hell bent on getting their hat-trick. They qualified courtesy of Wasps’ win over Ulster yesterday in Coventry.

Munster will welcome Toulon to Limerick

It was a week of controversy in Limerick, but Munster silenced the critics with an impressive hammering of Castres on Sunday afternoon. 

It'll be Munster's 17th appearance in the knockout stages of the tournament and they'll face a Toulon side who won the Champions Cup in 2013, 2014 and 2015. 

Scarlets vs La Rochelle - Clermont vs Racing 92

The other two quarter finals will see Scarlets host La Rochelle at Parc y Scarlets in Wales, while in France, Clermont will go up against Racing 92 at the Parc des Sports Marcel Michelin.

Munster and Leinster are on opposite sides of the draw and can not meet until the final should they both progress.
