Ulster And Munster’s Rescheduled Champions Cup Fixtures Revealed


EPCR has announced the dates for Champions Cup matches cancelled due to the Paris terror attacks of November 13.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – hosted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy, Ireland international Megan Williams and Olympic sevens star, Greg O'Shea. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

All five matches will be played over the weekend of January 8-10.

That means clubs like Ulster and Munster will have three consecutive weekends of Champions Cup games, and a final round of league fixtures, before going into the Six Nations break.

The Guinness PRO12, Aviva Premiership and Orange Top 14 all needed to shift league fixtures to accommodate the EPCR.

For example, three PRO12 games – Ulster v Newport Gwent Dragons, Zebre v Glasgow Warriors, and Cardiff Blues v Munster – will now take place later in 2016.

The new exact dates, kick-off times and television coverage of the five Champions Cup fixtures and one Challenge Cup match will be announced as soon as possible.

Rescheduled matches for 8/9/10 January 2016

Round 1: Oyonnax v Ulster Rugby, Racing 92 v Glasgow Warriors, Bordeaux-Bègles v ASM Clermont Auvergne, RC Toulon v Bath Rugby

Round 2: Stade Francais Paris v Munster Rugby
