European Challenge Cup quarter-final schedule confirmed
January 26, 2007
The European Challenge Cup will break new ground when three of the quarter-finals will be televised live on the weekend of 30/31 March and 1 April.
While one of last season's quarter-finals was televised live, this season three of ERC's broadcast partners - Sky Sports, France Televisions and S4C - will provide unprecedented coverage of this year's matches.
The ASM Clermont Auvergne against Newcastle Falcons match will get the quarter-finals underway on the Friday night with the clash between West Country neighbours Bath Rugby and Bristol Rugby kicking-off at noon on Saturday.
The contest between Newport Gwent Dragons and Brive will follow on Saturday afternoon with Saracens and Glasgow Warriors meeting on the Sunday afternoon.
