Connacht will take on French teams Toulouse and Montpellier as well as Premiership side Gloucester in Pool 5 of the 2019/20 Heineken Champions Cup.
 
The draw was made in Lausanne Switzerland earlier today, and pits Andy Friend’s side against some familiar faces in Europe. This is the 4th time in five seasons Connacht have been paired with Toulouse in the pool stages, while Gloucester most recently visited The Sportsground for the 2017/18 Challenge Cup quarter-finals.
 
Connacht have also come up against Montpellier in European action, but you have to go back to the 2009/10 Challenge Cup for the last time the two sides met.
