Northampton Saints' fate has been decided for next season's European Champions Cup.
The Saints have been placed in Pool Two and face tough opponents, including reigning champions Saracens and last year's runner's up Clermont Auvergne.
The opening round of the competition starts in October.
Director of Rugby Jim Mallinder says it's a chance for his side to test themselves against the other top teams.
If you want to be in the Champions Cup you’ve got to be prepared to play tough teams and this is what we will have to do,” Mallinder says.
It’s a challenging draw and we know that we’ll have to play at our very best if we are to progress from it. Saracens and Clermont were this year’s Champions Cup finalists and are two of the best teams in Europe, and the Ospreys have plenty of international players, too.
But it is a draw that we can be excited about, because we want to test ourselves against the other top team, and we believe we’ve got a squad that can compete next season.
Northampton Saints youngster Alex Mitchell is part of the England Under 20s side to face Wales in the second game of the World Rugby U20 Championship in Georgia tomorrow.

Northampton Saints forward Dylan Hartley has been banned for six weeks following his sending off during their defeat against Leinster in the European Rugby Champions Cup at Franklin's Gardens.
The England captain lasted just six minutes off the bench after he was red-carded for a swinging arm tackle on Leinster's Sean O'Brien.
Prior to this Hartley had already served a total of 54 weeks suspension, the longest being 26 weeks for eye-gouging. His punishments also cost him the chance to play with the British Lions in 2013, and for England in last year's Rugby World Cup.
The six-week ban means Hartley will be able to start in England's Six Nations opener against France at Twickenham on February 4.
Northampton Saints forward Dylan Hartley will find out on Wednesday if he'll be able to lead England into the Six Nations.
The England captain lasted just six minutes off the bench after he was red-carded in the Saints' 37-10 defeat to Leinster on Friday in the European Rugby Champions Cup at Franklin's Gardens.
The dismissal capped a miserable night for Saints fans who are genuinely concerned about the club's ill discipline on the field and poor form.
A suspension of eight weeks or more would rule him out of the Six Nations opener against France at Twickenham on February 4.
Hartley will appear before an independent hearing to discover the length of the ban.

Four players have the Anglia region have been named in new coach Eddie Jones' first 33-man England squad.
Dylan Hartley, Paul Hill and Courtney Lawes of Northampton Saints and Norfolk's Ben Youngs of Leicester Tigers are in the squad.
No captain named at this stage but Dylan Hartley is widely tipped despite his disciplinary problems. The Northampton hooker, 29, was dropped from the World Cup squad after a series of disciplinary breaches.
The notable omissions from the squad is Ben's brother Tom Youngs, the Leicester hooker who has been dropped and Northampton Saints' Tom Wood.
England head coach Eddie Jones says he has "chosen a lot of new players on the growth we see in them".
"The long-term strategy for England is to develop a side who can be the most dominant team in world rugby. Jones says "the door is not shut for anyone" after naming his first squad.
“I have spoken to some of the players who have not been selected," he said. "Naturally they will be disappointed and that is how it should be. They know what they need to do to get back into this squad.
"There is no such thing as a shut door because of injuries and loss of form. There will always be opportunities to anyone playing consistently well in the Premiership and Europe.”
The squad will meet at Pennyhill Park on 24 January to prepare for their opening Six Nations match against Scotland in Edinburgh on Saturday 6 February.
