Following a meeting of the EPCR Board today (Friday, 17 December) it has been decided that due to current exceptional circumstances, Round 2 matches in the Heineken Champions Cup and EPCR Challenge Cup between French and UK clubs scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday are postponed.

This is a consequence of new travel measures between the UK and France which are being introduced by the French Government.

All other Round 2 matches scheduled for this evening (Friday), and over the weekend, will go ahead as planned – including Munster’s game against Castres on Saturday night.

The Munster team has been named here with tickets only available online here.

The intention is to reschedule the following Round 2 fixtures to a later date:

Champions Cup

Bath Rugby v Stade Rochelais

Sale Sharks v ASM Clermont Auvergne

Scarlets v Union Bordeaux-Bègles

Stade Toulousain v Wasps

Stade Francais Paris v Bristol Bears

Challenge Cup

Worcester Warriors v Biarritz Olympique

London Irish v CA Brive

EPCR will provide a further update as soon as practicable and will continue to liaise directly with all clubs, leagues and stakeholders.
