Round 5.

European Champions Cup rugby returns this weekend as we get set for the business end of the pool stages with just two rounds of action left to come.

Up first we’ve got a huge game between Gloucester and Munster under Friday night lights with all four teams in that pool still in a position to not only qualify, but top the group. Frenchman Roman Poite will take charge of that affair at Kingsholm.

The tie of the round on Saturday sees defending champions Leinster host Toulouse with the winner of that game almost certain to top Pool 1. Englishman Luke Pearce has been tasked with taking charge of that exciting fixture.
