Heineken schedule revealed
LEINSTER will begin their 'mission improbable' to find a way back into Pool Five of the Heineken Cup at home to The Scarlets on Saturday, January 12, after the dates and times for the final two rounds of the competition were revealed yesterday.
They will need a full five points to hold any chance of maintaining an interest in qualifying as one of the two best runners-up in the quarter-finals.
Exeter Chiefs will block their path at Sandy Park on Saturday 19.
Full TV details for rounds 5 and 6 will be announced shortly.
