Tickets for the British & Irish Cup final are now on sale after it was confirmed that Bedford Blues will meet Jersey in the quarter-finals on Friday, March 11.

While the Blues, who topped Pool 2 of the competition, face Jersey with a 7.45pm kick-off, the other fixtures will see Leinster A facing London Welsh, Yorkshire Carnegie hosting Moseley and Cornish Pirates being drawn at home against Doncaster Knights.

Should the Blues overcome the Islanders, they would travel away for a semi-final clash against the winner of the Yorkshire Carnegie versus Moseley tie. The winner of this semi-final would then host the British & Irish Cup final on the weekend of April 8-10.
