Holders Saracens have been drawn to face Munster, Racing 92 and the Ospreys in a tough European Champions Cup group.
The European and Premiership champions beat Munster at the semi-final stage in April before going on to defeat Leinster at St James’ Park.
Saracens will take on Munster again next season and also do battle with Racing – quarter-finalists in the 2018-19 competition.
Ospreys, the only Welsh side in the Champions Cup, are the other team in a Pool 4 which stands out as the toughest of the five.
So there we have it
The Pools for next season’s #ChampionsCup are set in stone for all to see
