Leicester Tigers have discovered who they will play in the European Champions Cup group stages following a draw earlier today (Wednesday) in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

Tigers have been drawn in Pool 4 and will play French Top 14 champions Stade Francais, Irish heavyweights Munster and the top ranked Italian side in the Guinness Pro 12 Treviso.

While it is another tough group for Leicester the draw is an easier route into the knock-out stages than last season.

In 2014/15 they were drawn in the ‘Pool of Death’ which included eventual European Cup Champions Toulon, Ulster and Scarlets.

The other groups are:

Pool 1

Saracens
