Cape Town - Following the weekend's European Rugby Champions Cup matches, French giants Racing 92 and Toulon will meet in the quarter-finals.

Not only will the clash see the two European heavyweights collide, but also a large amount of southern hemisphere talent.

Although Toulon might not be at their best at the moment, the prospect of seeing the likes of Ma’a Nonu, Duane Vermeulen, Matt Giteau and Drew Mitchell up against Juan Imhoff, Dimitri Szarzewski, Joe Rokocoko and Dan Carter.

It seems Mitchell is looking forward to the showdown, asking Carter if he was willing to wager a month's salary of his reported €1 million per year wages on the outcome of the game.

Nice try Drew!

Line-up for the European Champions Cup quarter-finals:

Saracens (ENG) v Northampton (ENG)

Wasps (ENG) v Exeter (ENG)

Racing 92 (FRA) v Toulon (FRA)

Leicester (ENG) v Stade Francais (FRA)
