European Professional Club Rugby have given an update on the rescheduling of the postponed games from the early rounds of the competition.

Oyonnax v Ulster, Racing 92 v Glasgow, Bordeaux-Bègles v Clermont, Toulon v Bath, Stade Français v Munster and Pau v Castres were all recently postponed.

Since the past weekend talks have been ongoing between EPCR, the Ligue Nationale de Rugby, Premiership Rugby and the PRO12 to reschedule the pool fixtures.

"To assist clubs from the three leagues with their short-term planning, all parties are in agreement that the postponed matches will not be scheduled for the weekends of 27/28/29 November or 4/5/6 December," read the statement issued on Friday.

"However, as previously clarified, EPCR and the leagues remain adamant that all postponed fixtures in the European Rugby Champions Cup and Challenge Cup will be played.

"It is hoped that the new dates will be announced as soon as possible following this weekend's Round 2 matches in both tournaments."
