Defending Heineken Cup champions, Toulouse, will go into the quarter-finals of the 2003/04 competition as the top seeds. The French side will have home ground advantage in the play-offs, which will take place on April 9-11, along with London Wasps (second seeds), Munster (third) and Llanelli Scarlets (fourth).

Heineken Cup quarter-final line-up:
Toulouse (1) v Edinburgh Rugby (8)
London Wasps (2) v Gloucester (7)
Munster (3) v Stade Français (6)
Llanelli Scarlets (4) v Biarritz Olympique (5)

----------------------------------------------

so what do you reckon? Toulouse on for another title or can England raise to the challenge;)

Quarter-final kick-offs confirmed for April

The eight quarter-finalists were confirmed at the weekend, with last-minute heartbreak, for some, and elation, for others.

Llanelli Scarlets, the fourth seeds from Wales, will get the quarter-final weekend under way on Friday, April 9, when they host Biarritz Olympique at Stradey Park. The game kicks off at 19.45 GMT.

Saturday sees two games, with defending champions and top QF seeds, Toulouse, hosting first-time qualifiers, Edinburgh, at 16.00 (French time). The 'other' Saturday quarter-final see Munster host French side Stade Français at Thomond Park - with kick-off set for 17.00 GMT.

Sunday sees London Wasps host Gloucester in an all-English quarter-final at the Causeway Stadium. Kick-off is at 15.00 GMT.

Home ground advantage is a massive factor in Europe's premier club competition, with no side that has not hosted a home semi-final ever gone on to win the tournament.
