We review the three Heineken Champions Cup matches still underway in Saturday’s second round of pool matches, with Harlequins hosting Cardiff, Glasgow Warriors facing Exeter Chiefs and Munster facing Castres…

European Cup matches postponed due to French travel restrictions

Tournament organizer EPCR announced that most European matches involving French and British clubs this weekend have been postponed.

The Queens will be seeking a rare European success in this Anglo-Welsh showdown, having won once, drawn twice and lost five of their previous eight Champions Cup matches against Cardiff.

Team news: Queens made four changes to the 15th start of the win at Custer, including returning Joe Marchant to the backline on the wing. Will Hobson and Mac Wilson can debut in Europe from the bench.

Cardiff also made four changes to the starting lineup, with academy back Cameron Wynnet making his debut. Evan Yardley replaces injured Easten Harris in a prostitute, Sam Moore is eighth and Ray Lee-Lo returns to the team in the outside position.

what are they saying: “We saw in Cardiff’s game against Toulouse last Saturday that they are in a real fight despite the turmoil they have been through in recent weeks. We know we can’t rest on our laurels because we welcome them at home.”

– Harlequins scrum coach and former Cardiff assistant Adam Jones

“Defensively, there are some tweaks, but we can use this game as another exciting one, because they are the English champions.”
