Challenge Cup quarter-final schedule confirmed

London Irish and Bourgoin will kick-off the European Challenge Cup quarter-finals when they clash at the Madejski Stadium on Thursday, April 9.

The other match involving English and French opposition, last season's finalists Worcester Warriors against 1997 Heineken Cup champions Brive, is the Saturday lunchtime showdown for armchair viewers followed by Connacht Rugby's test at Northampton Saints.
