European Professional Club Rugby has released all 20 squads for the upcoming Champions Cup and Challenge Cup competitions.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – fronted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy and Ireland international Megan Williams. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

Last Friday, each team was required to submit their 41-man squad for the pool stages of the competitions.

Perhaps the scariest sight of them all is Toulon’s squad. Quade Cooper appears to have resolved his differences and will be joining up with the French giants amid reports he will be allowed leave for Olympic Sevens in Rio. James O’Connor appears to have either found himself a new club or rejoined Toulon who always owned his contract- no one really know the true story.

There’s also good news for Paul O’Connell, who is included signalling he will indeed be back before the end of January. One Ma’a Nonu is also included. Can anyone say four from four?
