We open up by taking on Bristol Bears at Ashton Gate on Saturday, December 11 (5.30pm ko), then welcome Bordeaux-Begles to Parc y Scarlets on Sunday, December 19 (1pm) in round two.

The return match in France will take place on Sunday, January 16 (3.15pm UK time) and we complete our pool campaign at home to the Bears in what promises to be a mouthwatering Anglo-Welsh battle at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday, January 22 (5.30pm).
