Richard Cockerill and Geordan Murphy joined fellow directors of rugby and captains for the UK launch of this season's Heineken and Amlin Challenge cups.

Representatives from the English, Scottish and Welsh clubs who qualified for European rugby this season were at the Sky Studios in Isleworth, London for Monday’s launch event.

It was also attended by sponsors and television, radio and press journalists and photographers, and involved a series of photo shoots and interviews for Cockerill and Murphy.
