Northampton land Ulster draw and it’s Leinster for Leicester

TOP SEEDS Northampton will host Irish province Ulster in the quarter-finals of the Heineken Cup.

The Saints, who won all six of their group matches, will have home advantage if they reach the semis, but may have to switch the venue of their last-eight tie away from Franklin’s Gardens to a venue with a capacity in excess of 15,000. Leicester travel to face 2009 champions Leinster, Perpignan play Toulon and Biarritz host Toulouse in two all-French ties – the latter a repeat of last year’s final.
