European rugby postponed

Exeter's semi-final and potential final off

European Rugby have postponed the Champions Cup finals and semi-finals due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, they remain 'committed' to completing the competition.

Exeter Chiefs were one of the favourites to win the Champions Cup having guaranteed a home quarter and semi final. 

In a statement realised earlier today (Tuesday 24th March) European Rugby said: " We're working with the leagues and unions to restructure a conclusion to its season as part of a wider rescheduling of the remainder of the season in Europe, with all contingencies underpinned by the requirement to protect the health and welfare of players, club staff, match officials, supporters and the wider rugby community. 

"EPCR remains committed to completing the 2019/20 Heineken Champions Cup and Challenge Cup season, and it is planned to reschedule the quarter-final and semi-final matches, as well as the Marseille finals, in line with fixtures in the professional league competitions, subject to advice from government and local authorities."
