The 2011/12 Amlin Challenge Cup battle lines have been drawn with England fly-half Jonny Wilkinson set to return to Newcastle when Toulon tackle the Falcons in Pool 2 on December 8.

Toulon will travel to Kingston Park for their Round 3 clash with Wilkinson, who spent 12 years at Newcastle before moving to the south of France, set to spearhead the French club's challenge after they reached the quarter finals of last year's Heineken Cup.

Worcester Warriors, who won promotion back to the Aviva Premiership last season, have been drawn against 2011 runners-up Stade Francais in the opening fixture of the tournament on November 10. London Wasps, who won the competition in 2003, launch their campaign away to Bordeaux-Begles before taking on Femi-CZ Rovigo and Bayonne in Pool 3.

Meanwhile Exeter Chiefs face a daunting challenge to get out of Pool 4 as they face Heineken Cup semi-finalists Perpignan, Newport Gwent Dragons and I Cavalieri Prato. Sale Sharks open up away to Brive, who they finished runners up to in last year's Pool 2, before facing newcomers and Spanish Champions CR La Vila and French Top 14 side Agen.
