Leicester, Munster and Saracens all notched up wins in the last round of the Heineken Cup to fill the remaining quarter-final spots.

Saracens booked themselves a home quarter-final in the Heineken Cup after sweeping past Edinburgh 40-7 at Vicarage Road on Sunday.

Three Owen Farrell penalties and Chris Ashton's first try took them into a 14-7 lead at the interval. Further touchdowns from Ashton, Matt Stevens, Charlie Hodgson and Chris Wyles sealed the five points.

Meanwhile, Simon Zebo scored a hat-trick of tries as Munster swept past 14-man Racing Metro and knocked Leinster out of the Heineken Cup in the process.

Rob Penney's men needed a bonus-point win at Thomond Park in order to leapfrog their Irish rivals into the second best runners-up spot. 

And finally, Leicester Tigers clinched the final Heineken Cup quarter-final spot at the expense of Toulouse after edging the winner-takes-all Pool Two clash 9-5 at Welford Road.
