CONFIRMED: Fixture details for Munster's Champions Cup quarter-final in Edinburgh

The date and kick-off time for Munster's Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final has been confirmed

THE date and kick-off time for Munster’s big Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final clash with Edinburgh at the end of March have been confirmed.

Munster’s 18th Champions Cup quarter-final appearance will take place at Murrayfield on Saturday, March 30 at 12.45pm.

Johann van Graan’s side secured their place in the knock-out stages of the European Cup once again by finishing top of Pool 2, following their hard fought 9-7 victory over Exeter Chiefs at a sold-out Thomond Park on Saturday last.

Munster's Champions Cup quarter-final with Guinness PRO14 rivals Edinburgh will be televised live on Virgin Media, Channel 4 and BT Sport.

Should Munster defeat Edinburgh in the quarter-finals, the two-time European Cup winners will take on either Saracens or Glasgow Warriors in the semi-finals.
