European Rugby Champions Cup Rounds 1-4 confirmed

12 August 2015

One of the toughest trips in European rugby is first up for Bath Rugby in this season's European Rugby Champions Cup as they travel to Toulon on Sunday 15th November.

The three-times, and current, European Champions will host Bath at the Stade Felix Mayol, kick-off 16.15 (local time).

Fellow former Champions Leinster will be first to visit the Recreation Ground, on Saturday 21st November, kick-off 15.15, with the game being broadcast live on BT Sport.

A double header against Aviva Premiership rivals Wasps are the December fixtures, with Bath travelling to Coventry on Sunday 13th December (kick-off 17.15), before they make the reverse trip on Saturday 19th December, kick-off 15.15. Both will be shown live on BT Sport.

Rounds 5 and 6, away to Leinster and home to Toulon, will be confirmed after the completion of Round 4.

Head Coach, Mike Ford, said: "European competition is the pinnacle of Club rugby, and we're really excited to have been drawn against three former Champions of the competition. Each team presents their own challenges, and whilst we may be more familiar with Wasps, it means we know just how competitive they can be. We want to test ourselves against the best, and can't wait for the challenge that awaits."
