Harlequins 2021/22 Heineken Champions Cup fixtures have been unveiled
The reigning Gallagher Premiership champions will kick off their European campaign away to Castres Olympique at the Stade Pierre-Fabre in the second week of December (10-12) in Pool B.
Quins’ Round Two fixture will see Cardiff Rugby travel to the Twickenham Stoop the following weekend (17-19).
Harlequins return to European action in January after a four-week return to domestic action with trip to Cardiff (January 14-16) before a final pool stage clash with Castres in South West London.
Commenting ahead of his first European campaign with Harlequins, Senior Coach Tabai Matson said: “I think this has been a fundamentally good draw for us with Castres away up first and then Cardiff as home.
“The pool draw is what it is every year, you have no choice in that. But with the way we roll through the start of the season in the Premiership and then into December with Europe is good for us.
“That first European game coming as an away fixture provides us with some nice variety early on in our campaign. And then we’ll get to see how we go in January for the second stint of European action, which is exciting.”
