The Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-finals have been confirmed and it is Stade Francais who will kick-off the action on Thursday April 5.
The Parisian giants host the Exeter Chiefs at the Stade Charlety on the Thursday evening after the pair come through Pools which included Worcester Warriors for Stade and Perpignan for the Chiefs. And on Friday it is Stade's Top 14 rivals Toulon who are thrust into the spotlight when they host Aviva Premiership leaders Harlequins at the Stade Felix Mayol.
Come Saturday Premiership side London Wasps play host to Biarritz - who dispatched the Ospreys last weekend with ease thanks to a hat-trick from flying winger Taku Ngwenya. And on Sunday, the weekend's action is concluded as the Scarlets travel to Brive at the Stadium Municipal Amédée Domenech.
