Munster v Toulouse, Sat., April 5

THE frenzy for Heineken Cup quarter final tickets begins with the ERC announcing details of the last eight contenders.

Munster’s game v Toulouse, probably the match of the quarter finals, will be played on Saturday, April 6 with a 1.30pm kick-off.

The winner of this one will meet the winners of Toulon and Leinster.

Packed houses and even more drama will be in store when these highest quality weekends of the European rugby calendar kicks off.

The quarter-finals of the Heineken Cup and the Amlin Challenge Cup, which feature clubs with a total of 30 European titles between them, will get underway on Thursday, 3 April with the all-English clash of Sale Sharks and Northampton Saints at the AJ Bell Stadium.

The heavyweight confrontations in the Heineken Cup last eight begin with four-time champions, Toulouse, paying a first visit to Munster Rugby’s Thomond Park fortress on Saturday, 5 April, with that mouthwatering fixture followed by the meeting of last season’s beaten finalists, ASM Clermont Auvergne, and Leicester Tigers at Stade Marcel-Michelin.

The Saturday schedule will be completed when No 1 seeds, Ulster Rugby, host Saracens at Ravenhill in a repeat of the 2013 quarter-final won 27-16 by Saracens at Twickenham Stadium, while Sunday, 6 April will feature the first match between reigning champions, Toulon, and three-time winners, Leinster Rugby at Stade Felix Mayol.

Sunday also sees Bath Rugby hosting Brive at the Recreation Ground in the Amlin Challenge Cup in a reprise of the 1998 Heineken Cup decider and the weekend will be wrapped up later in the day when two former Amlin Challenge Cup winners, London Wasps and Gloucester Rugby, meet in their quarter-final at Adams Park.

Earlier in the schedule, Harlequins will travel to Paris to take on Stade Francais on Friday, 4 April in a repeat of the 2011 Amlin Challenge Cup final.
