Scotland's two representatives have been handed difficult draws for next season's Heineken Cup.
Edinburgh are in Pool 2 along with Guinness Premiership champions Wasps, Magners League champions Leinster and French side Castres.
Glasgow Warriors face last season's runners-up, Toulouse, Bath and Newport Gwent Dragons in Pool 5.
The draw in Dublin was seeded for the first time, with Edinburgh and Glasgow among the fourth seeds.
Overall, it is a strong Heineken Cup pool for Edinburgh and we are looking forward to the challenge ahead
Edinburgh head coach Andy Robinson
There were 24 teams in all, from six nations, split into four tiers and Edinburgh head coach Andy Robinson insisted he was not unhappy with such a difficult draw.
"We are pleased with the group," said the Englishman, who has been assisting Scotland coach Frank Hadden during the test series against Argentina.
"We will be able to test ourselves against the champions of England, London Wasps and the Magners League champions, Leinster.
"We look forward to welcoming back both teams to Murrayfield and having Castres in the Pool will be new territory.
"Overall, it is a strong Heineken Cup pool for Edinburgh and we are looking forward to the challenge ahead."
Warriors chief executive Ian Riddoch acknowledged his club face a tough task after being grouped with three-times European champions Toulouse.
However, he said Sean Lineen and his men will be looking forward to locking horns with the French side.
"We know a lot about Toulouse and they are one of the biggest names in the best club rugby competition in the world," said Riddoch.
"It promises to be an exciting event in our calendar."
