Toulon's 43-20 win over Cardiff on Saturday ensured Mark Anscombe's side made the last eight.

There is still plenty for Ulster to play for as they prepare for their crunch pool decider away to the Leicester Tigers at Welford Road next weekend.

Ulster have the only perfect record in European Cup rugby this season.

If they make it six wins out of six they will top the pool and secure a home quarter-final at the revamped 18,000-seater Ravenhill stadium.

Munster are through after Saturday's 20-7 win over Gloucester put them six points clear of Edinburgh.

Leinster could book their place in the quarter-finals with a bonus point victory over Castres at the Stade Pierre Antoine on Sunday.
