European Champions Cup Draw

Munster have been drawn against familiar opposition in the pool stages of next season’s European Champions Cup.

Rassie Erasmus’ side will face both Racing and Leicester for the second consecutive season.

Completing Pool 4 will be another Top 14 side – Castres.

Leinster have been drawn in a tricky-looking Pool 3 along with new Premiership champions Exeter, as well as Glasgow and Montpellier.

Ulster have been handed perhaps the kindest draw of the Irish provinces – they’ll be in Pool 1 with Wasps, La Rochelle and Harlequins.

Elsewhere, this season’s finalists – Saracens and Clermont – have been drawn together in Pool 2 with the Ospreys and Northampton.

While Pro 12-winners Scarlets are in Pool 5 with Toulon, Bath and Treviso.

Connacht will play Brive, Worcester and Oyonnax in Pool 5 of next season’s European Challenge Cup
