It’s situation Cardiff’s Gareth Anscombe said was a “disgrace”.
In a statement, tournament organisers EPCR said: “EPCR has procedures in place for ensuring that playing kits for matches in its tournaments are distinctive, however, these procedures were not sufficiently followed through for last weekend’s Heineken Champions Cup, Round 2 match at Cardiff Arms Park.
“EPCR will be formally contacting both Cardiff Blues and Glasgow Warriors in due course to apologise.”
