Clermont will be without winger Sitiveni Sivivatu for Saturday's Heineken Cup quarter-final against Leicester.

Sivivatu has picked up a shoulder injury and Noa Nakaitaci starts on the left flank in his place. For Leicester, Owen Williams starts at fly-half ahead of Toby Flood with Ed Slater captaining the side.

Do or die in the Heineken Cup

  • "We have reached the knockout stages of what will be the final season of Heineken Cup. While the various big wigs around Europe look to have finally thrashed out a compromise over exactly what guise the new tournament will take next season, the focus, thankfully, returns to the pitch this weekend as the rugby-watching public, players and media can take in the four mouthwatering Heineken Cup quarter-final ties."

For Munster, Peter O'Mahony is fit to start at blindside for their match against Toulouse while the French side are without Census Johnston but Louis Picamoles starts at No.8.

Ulster have received a boost with Ruan Pienaar returning at scrum-half after a spell out injured while Saracens have called on Billy Vunipola who is back in the side after injuring himself during the Six Nations.

On Sunday Leinster travel to Toulon and they will have Jimmy Gopperth at fly-half after he was preferred to Ian Madigan. Toulon have left Frederic Michalak out of their matchday squad with Jonny Wilkinson at fly-half and Bryan Habana on the bench. Ali Williams and Bakkies Botha miss out through injury so Danie Rossouw starts in the second-row alongside Jocelino Suta.
