ERC finalise Heineken Cup schedule

European Rugby Cup have confirmed the kick-off times and dates for the final two rounds of Heineken Cup pool fixtures.

The penultimate round gets under way on February 14 with Cardiff Blues hosting Castres (7.30pm) before crunch meetings between Ulster and Biarritz (3.30pm) and Scarlets and Leicester (5.45pm) in Pools Four and Five respectively.

The Sunday of that weekend sees Pool Three meetings between Toulon and Munster and London Irish and Ospreys.

With final-round games in each pool to take place at the same time, the Ospreys will then host Toulon and London Irish head to Munster as their evenly-poised section reaches its climax on Saturday, January 22 - both games kicking off at 3pm.

The following day's action sees the concluding Pool Five fixtures between Perpignan and Scarlets and Leicester and Treviso (1pm) before the meeting between Pool Six sides Wasps and Toulouse at Adams Park (3pm), along with Newport Gwent Dragons v Glasgow.
