IF Wasps weren’t sure what life in the European Rugby Champions Cup entails, their opening two away fixtures provides a fairly brutal example.

First up is a trip to Dublin to take on three-time European champions Leinster on Sunday, October 19, before they go to France in early December to play Top 14 champions Castres.

Harlequins come to Wycombe in between those matches, before the second half of pool games includes home matches Castres and Leinister either side of a trip to The Stoop.

The quarter-finals and semi-finals take place in April with the final at Twickenham on May 2.
