Pleased to see fixtures have popped up on my google calendar feed and good to see that they cover the whole season [with the inevitable caveat about TV schedules]. I see no mention of the European stuff; anybody know when we'll be seeing this?

Could be wrong, but apart from saying August, I don't think a specific date has been publicised...(Tried looking on various sites without success).

Lyon is about the closest big airport. Two hours on the TGV from there. You can fly or get the TGV from Paris too but that is about 3 and a half hours on the train I think. I’ve been looking from the Midlands though so might be some other options from Bristol/Cardiff. Clermont-Ferrand airport has a pretty limited service though.

Similar feedback. Not easy to get to. No apparent direct flights- most require you to change at Paris. One glimmer of hope- might be a few more flights in ski season (all fixtures October to January) but think I'm clutching at straws!

Any idea when the European fixtures are confirmed?

Normally at least know the date they are going to be announced by now.

To be conformed in the next few weeks.
“exact dates, venues and fixture kick-off times for Europe’s blue-riband club tournament set to be announced during August.”

Will you require visas? I'm serious.

From gov.uk site

"There would be no immediate changes to travel if the UK agrees a deal to leave the EU. The rules would be the same until at least 2020."

No, that's not true, deal or no deal no visas are necessary in France for a year after exit, Spain 21 months, Germany 9 months.

Given we might be playing them in January I'm taking it we're assuming that this means the end of 2020?!

A year after exit Tom, there is no issue!

Cheers! Would've been a bit harsh, although to be honest getting a visa probably less of a headache than waiting for TV to let you know the actual day and time of the fixture. I know TV brings in the cash, but I don't think it's much to expect them to commit earlier than they do, and the last group fixtures always the worst as they wait to see which are the critical fixtures- a pain when sorting out flights and accommodation.

Are all games not on the telly anyway?

Just get it sorted European Rugby / BT Sport!

I suppose they want the 'dead rubbers' as the curtain-raisers. The prime matches Sat and Sun 3.00 kick-offs, those making up the numbers scheduled around it and the graveyard shift is Sunday evening! The Eurodisney Cup used to have Thursday kick-offs but I vaguely recall that no longer happens???

Last year they were announced on 17 August which was a Friday. My hunch is they will be announced tomorrow.

Guess not then?

Has rugby forgotten about this tournament for preference for the WC?

Wouldn't take much effort for EPCR to confirm on their web site when the fixtures will be released.
