Bath will travel to face Toulon in the Champions Cup on Sunday Jan. 10 after European Rugby confirmed the dates and kick-off times for each of the matches that were postponed in the wake of the Paris terror attacks in November.

Batch chairman Bruce Craig had expressed his doubt that the game would ever manage to be rescheduled due to the hectic calendar that both sides face this season. However, it is the European tie that has taken precedence, meaning that the Aviva Premiership match between Bath and Sale - originally slated for Friday Jan. 8 - will be moved to an unconfirmed date later in the year.

Among the other matches to be rescheduled are Glasgow's trip to face Racing 92 and Stade Francais' meeting with Munster in Paris.
