Champions Cup holders Leinster will take on Ulster at home in the quarter-finals of the 2018/19 competition after impressively defeating Wasps at the Ricoh Arena.

Leo Cullen’s men overcame the English outfit 37-19 to confirm top spot in Pool 1 and third seed overall, meaning that they will face their fellow Irish province in the last eight.

Elsewhere, Saracens finished as top seed after six successive victories in the group stages and they will have a rematch with Glasgow Warriors as a result.

The final two games see Racing 92 host Toulouse in an all-French affair while Munster travel to Scotland and go head-to-head with Edinburgh, who qualified following a superb triumph against Montpellier.

The ties will be played over the weekend of the 29/30/31 March, with dates and kick-off times to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, in the Challenge Cup, three of the encounters will see rematches of the group stages. Clermont Auvergne face Northampton Saints, following on from that thrilling contest in Round 5, while Sale host Connacht and La Rochelle take on Bristol.

In the other game, two English teams go head-to-head as Harlequins head to Sixways to play Alan Solomons’ Worcester Warriors.
