Leinster will face three-time winners Toulon in back-to-back Champions Cup fixtures in December - although a venue has yet to be confirmed for the Irish province’s visit to France.

The venue for the round three game on Sunday December 13th was not announced within Friday’s fixtures release, as the French side may yet elect to take Leinster to a larger stadium than their own Stade Mayol. However, the return will certainly go ahead on Saturday December 19th at the Aviva Stadium, where Paul O’Connell will be sure to receive a warm reception upon his return to Irish soil.

Munster meanwhile begin their campaign at home against Treviso on Saturday November 14th, before they visit French champions Stade Francais on November 22nd. They then renew rivalries with Leicester Tigers in Thomond Park on December 12th. It’s a case of Friday night lights for Ulster as they play two of their opening three rounds of this year’s campaign at home on, yes a Friday night. On the 20th November they host Saracens, before a mouth watering clash against Toulouse at the Kingspan Stadium on December 11th.
