London Irish and Bourgoin will kick-off European club rugby's quarter-final weekend when they clash in the last eight of the European Challenge Cup at the Madejski Stadium on Thursday evening, 9 April.
The Anglo-French contest between the Exiles - the No 1 seeds - and No 8 seeds Bourgoin launches the exciting European weekend of knock-out games in the Heineken Cup and European Challenge Cup while the Easter Sunday afternoon clash at Vicarage Road of Saracens and Newcastle Falcons will bring down the curtain on the action packed weekend.
The other match involving English and French opposition, last season's finalists Worcester Warriors against 1997 Heineken Cup champions Brive, is the Saturday lunchtime showdown for armchair viewers followed by Connacht Rugby's test at Northampton Saints.
