The kick off times of rounds five and six of the Heineken Cup have been finalised by tournament organisers ERC.
Reigning champions Munster will take the prime Friday night TV slot for their round five clash with Sale, despite representations to have the game played on a different day.
Leinster travel to Twickenham the following day for a 5:35 kick off against London Wasps while Ulster will host the unbeaten Harlequins at Ravenhill earlier in the day with a 1:35 kick off.
Round 6, the final round of pool games sees Munster in action in France against Montauban with a Saturday afternoon slot of 3:35. Ulster will also be in France but will again be kicking off in the 1:35 slot against Stade Francais.
