Ulster and Munster’s European Champions Cup fixtures which were postponed in the wake of the Paris attacks have been rescheduled.
This means Ulster will now make the trip to face Oyonnax and Munster will travel to Paris to play Stade Francais on the weekend of January 8th/9th/10th.
The reorganised fixtures have been announced after discussions between the EPCR, the Pro 12, the English Premiership and Top 14, and a number of domestic games will be moved in order to accomodate them.
This includes Ulster’s round 12 game against Newport Gwent Dragons and Munster’s trip to play Cardiff Blues. New dates for these fixtures are yet to be decided.
An EPCR statement has said exact dates for the rescheduled Champions Cup fixtures will be announced as soon as possible.
