We're back at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday 24 February with a visit from Yorkshire Carnegie in the semi-final of the Championship Cup (kick-off 1pm).

Yorkshire Carnegie beat Bedford Blues 38-14 in the quarter-final to progress through the knockouts and will travel to the Madejski for the second time this season. The Exiles recorded an impressive 72-5 win over Yorkshire Carnegie in the Greene King IPA Championship in October, but after a tough start to the season the Leeds based side have found form, winning nine of their last eleven games.
