Bath set up Leicester clash
25 Jan 2009
Bath will face Leicester in the knock-out stages of the Heineken Cup after they were held to a 3-3 draw by Toulouse.
In torrid conditions at the Recreation Ground the game boiled down to a scrappy affair with neither side able to stamp their authority on the game in the poring rain. Both teams go through to the quarter-finals despite the stalemate.
The result means Bath will now face a trip to Leicester in the quarter-finals while Toulouse have the toughest draw as they face the unbeaten Cardiff Blues.
Earlier in the day Leinster became the second Irish outfit to secure a spot in the knock-out stages of the Heineken Cup with a 12-3 victory over Edinburgh in Dublin.
In a tense affair it was the boot of Felipe Contepomi that was the difference as he slotted four penalties to hand the Irish side the win, while in the other game in pool two Wasps crashed out of the competition as the were downed 21-15 by Castres in France.
In the only remaining game in pool one, Munster guaranteed themselves a home quarter-final against the Ospreys with a convincing 13-37 win over Montauban.
