The draws for the 2014/15 European Rugby Champions Cup and European Rugby Challenge Cup took place in Neuchatel in Switzerland on Tuesday afternoon.

Leinster were the first team out of the pot for the Champions Cup draw and were placed in pool two. Leinster will be joined in pool two in next season’s competition by Castres Olympique, Harlequins and London Wasps.

Leinster beat Castres home and away in last season’s Heineken Cup, the away win in Castres breaking the French side’s year-long unbeaten home record. 

Leinster last faced Harlequins in European competition on the way to winning the Heineken Cup in 2009. Leinster won a tight game away in The Stoop by a single point to set up a semi-final tie with Munster. 

Leinster defeated London Wasps in the quarter-final of the Amlin Challenge Cup back in April 2013. Five tries from Ian Madigan, Mike Ross, Isa Nacewa, Rob Kearney and Gordon D’Arcy all contributed to a 48-28 win. Read the match report from that game
