Rugby union fans have five top matches to look forward to on BT Sport this weekend, with six UK teams in action in the European Rugby Champions Cup.

Games involving Bath, Harlequins, Leicester Tigers, Glasgow, Ulster Rugby and Scarlets will be shown over the weekend, as the third round of pool matches takes place.

The action gets underway on Friday December 5th, as Bath travel to Montpellier for a 7:45pm evening kick-off.

Mike Ford's side may be flying high in the Aviva Premiership - sitting in second place - but they have fared less well in Europe so far this season.

After two games, Bath lie bottom of Pool 4 with just a solitary point.

Saturday's game brings Guinness Pro12 sides Ulster Rugby and Scarlets together for a Pool 3 clash at 7:45pm.

The Irish side - who have home advantage - are currently three points above their Welsh opponents in the domestic table.

However, Scarlets are two places and three points above Ulster in Pool 3 of the European Rugby Champions Cup.

Harlequins also face Irish opponents in their televised game on Sunday, taking on Leinster Rugby in a 3:15pm kick-off.

The Londoners - who lie ninth in the Aviva Premiership at present - top Pool 2 at present, although Leinster have the same number of points (eight) after two games.

On Sunday evening there are two games to choose from; Toulouse v Glasgow in Pool 4 and Leicester Tigers v RC Toulon from Pool 3.

Scottish rugby fans may opt to watch Glasgow's trip to France at 5.15pm, as the Pro12 side look to maintain their unbeaten record in the competition.

However, Leicester's game kicks off 15 minutes later at 5:30pm, meaning BT Sport viewers have a choice of fixtures.

Leicester need a win to keep pace with their French opponents, who top Pool 3 after the first two rounds of fixtures.
