SIX EUROPEAN CUP rugby matches postponed in November after the Paris attacks have been rescheduled for January, organisers have announced.

The European Rugby Champions Cup and Challenge Cup fixtures, which include Ulster’s trip to Oyonnax and Munster’s away meeting with Stade Francais, will be played on the weekend of January 8-10.

That also means the weekend’s French Top 14 will have to be postponed until later in the season, as will a number of PRO12 matches and Bath’s English Premiership fixture with Sale.

Matches rescheduled for 8-10 January:

Champions Cup – Round 1

  • Oyonnax v Ulster 
  • Racing 92 v Glasgow Warriors
  • Bordeaux-Bègles v Clermont Auvergne
  •  Toulon v Bath 

Champions Cup – Round 2

  • Stade Francais v Munster 

Challenge Cup – Round 1

  •  Pau v Castres
