The three-time champions, who are yet to appoint a new head coach, have been drawn against current holders Toulon, who will have Paul O’Connell in their ranks, as well as Premiership giants, Bath and Wasps in Pool 5. Ulster were seeded second in Pool 1 where they will face Saracens, Toulose and Oyonnax. Meanwhile, it’s been confirmed that next season’s final will take place in Lyon, while the 2017 decider will be staged in Murrayfield. ======== In the Challenge Cup, Connacht were among the top seeds for today’s draw and Pat Lam’s side will face Brive, Newcastle and Russian side Enisei-sten in the group stages.
