English trio at home in quarters
Heineken Cup
Saracens, London Irish and Gloucester will all enjoy home advantage in the Heineken Cup quarter-finals.

Sarries, who qualified as top seeds after topping Pool Four, will take on Welsh region side Ospreys, who went through as one of two best runners-up.

London Irish face Perpignan, while Gloucester host 2006 champions Munster.

The semi-final draw pairs Toulouse or Cardiff Blues with either the Exiles or Perpignan, while Saracens or Ospreys will play Gloucester or Munster.


The Blues secured their first ever quarter-final appearance by winning 17-0 at Bristol on Sunday, but were unable to collect a bonus point that would have seen them hosting the French aristocrats instead at the quarter-final stage.

The ties will be played on the weekend of 4/5/6 April.

Defending champions Wasps were knocked out after their 19-3 defeat to Munster on Saturday.

French giants Biarritz, Clermont Auvergne and Stade Francais - despite a bonus-point win at Harlequins on Sunday - also failed to make the last eight.

Quarter-final draw:
Saracens v Ospreys
London Irish v Perpignan
Gloucester v Munster
Toulouse v Cardiff Blues

Semi-final draw:
London Irish or Perpignan v Toulouse or Cardiff
Saracens or Ospreys v Gloucester or Munster
