LOU shoulder to shoulder with the reigning champion

The European Rugby Cup, which was shut down in January due to a health crisis, will resume rights on April 2, 3 and 4 with an unprecedented 16 rounds.

Among them: the impact between European Cup doubles winners Monster (2006, 2008) and four-time (1996, 2003, 2005, 2010) Continental Trophy winner Stade Toulouse at Thomont Park, Ireland.

Racing 92, an unfortunate finalist last year, will host an opponent in its arena.

Only another French club out of the seven still competing will have a home win: Bordeaux-Bugles, the current leader of the English Championship hosted by Bristol, where he passed former veteran Fijian winger Semi Radradra Gironde.

New format

Seven European titles will be played in Dublin, between the Irish, Leinster and RC Tollon, two teams that conquered the old continent in the first half of 2010.

Waiting for Lyon on the lawn of reigning champions Exeter is a daunting task, with La Rochelle and Clermont heading to Gloucester and Wasp, respectively.

In January, the formation of the British variant Kovid-19 forced the European competition organizing team EPCR (European Professional Club Rugby) to stop the group stage two days later.

To complete them, she changed the format from there, to the 16th round on the first weekend in April, before heading to the quarters next week.

If they qualify, Toulouse will go to the winner of the Wasps-Clermont match. Racing 92 will go to Bordeaux or Bristol.

In the “small” European Cup, the European Challenge, the agent who lost all his league matches, the Italians at Benetton Treviso may have a chance to enjoy a win on an affordable trip.
