All 5 Champions Cup Games In France Have Been Postponed
All five of this weekend’s Champions Cup and Challenge Cup rugby union matches taking place in France have been postponed following the Paris terror attacks which left at least 128 people dead, European Professional Club Rugby has announced.
There had been three matches scheduled for Saturday, which were the Champions Cup fixtures between Oyonnax-Ulster and Racing 92-Glasgow Warriors, and this evening’s Castres-Pau match in the Challenge Cup.
Sunday’s Champions Cup matches between Bordeaux-Clermont Auvergne, and Toulon-Bath, have also been postponed to be rescheduled for a later date.
An EPCR statement read: “EPCR extends its sincerest sympathies to everyone affected by the Paris attacks and as a mark of respect, all clubs competing in this weekend’s remaining Champions Cup and Challenge Cup fixtures in other territories have been asked to observe a minute’s silence before the games kick-off.”
