Saracens got the better of Gloucester - 24-16 - in Saturday's Zurich Wildcard final at Twickenham to book their seat at Europe's top table.
Meanwhile, former England Lions captain Martin Johnson's final game for Leicester Tigers ended in defeat as London Wasps came out on top - 39-14 - in the Zurich Premiership final. The result sees Wasps came England's top Heineken Cup ranking spot, with the Tigers second.
The next two weeks will see the make-up of the 2005/06 Heineken Cup completed. The remaining three French places and the FFR's overall rankings are still in the melting pot.
