New dates announced for postponed Champions Cup clashes

Tournament organisers have announced that Bath's postponed European Champions Cup game against holders Toulon will take place on Sunday, January 10.

Five Champions Cup fixtures and one match in the European Challenge Cup competition were postponed last month because of the Paris terror attacks.

Bath's Pool Five clash at Stade Felix-Mayol will start at 3.15pm (UK time) while Glasgow's delayed Pool Three appointment with Racing 92 takes place in Paris on Saturday, January 9, with a 1pm (UK time) kick-off.

Bath's Aviva Premiership appointment with Sale Sharks, which had been scheduled for January 8, will be held later in the season on a date to be announced.
