Return of the Heineken Cup

Following the drab EDF Energy Cup fixtures last weekend, the Heineken Cup returns with a bang with 15 matches live on Sky Sports over the next two weekends.  Round 3 has a distinct Anglo-French twist with four teams from each of the rival nations locking horns.

Unbeaten Gloucester face a tough trip to Bourgoin tonight, and with the return fixture next week, they could secure their place in the knockout stages.  Leicester face Toulouse whilst London Irish are up against Perpignan, but the clash of the weekend will be Wasps against Clermont Auvergne.

The defending champions have two wins from two and wins over the big-spending French outfit will make them favourites to emerge from a difficult Pool that also includes Munster and Llanelli.

Here is the full list of this week’s fixtures:
