Heineken Champions Cup

Leinster and Toulon will kick off the round of the last 16 in the Heineken Champions Cup when the two play each other at the RDS Arena on Friday, April 2nd.

The knock out stage of Europe’s most prestigious rugby competition will begin with a bang, in what promises to be a titanic clash between two clubs with seven Heineken Champions Cup titles between them.

In arguably the other biggest fixture of the round, Munster take on Toulouse at 3pm on Saturday, April 3rd in Thomond Park, in another encounter between two giants of European club rugby.

Tired bodies may be a concern for both Leinster and Munster, as the two face each other in the Guinness Pro14 Grand Final the Saturday before their last 16 fixtures.
