Chiefs' quarter-final postponed

European games off amid coronavirus fears

Exeter Chiefs' European Champions Cup home quater-final tie against Northampton, scheduled for April 4, has been postponed amid coronavirus fears.

The decision was made following an emergency meeting today (Monday 16th March 2020).

However, European Rugby say they're "committed" to finding a solution so they can complete the tournament. 

In a statement released earlier this afternoon, European Rugby said: "EPCR’s priority is the health and welfare of players and club staff, and an update regarding the knockout stages of the tournaments will be communicated to all stakeholders as soon as practicable. 

"EPCR, in conjunction with the relevant leagues and unions, remains committed to trying to find a solution which will enable it to complete the 2019/20 Heineken Champions Cup and Challenge Cup tournaments at such a time as that aligns with preventative measures undertaken by an overwhelming majority of sport’s governing bodies and tournament organisers in Europe.
