Mourning the end of the Rugby World Cup? Fear not, England's heartbroken stars will be live on BT Sport all season long as Eddie Jones' side return to club action in the Gallagher Premiership and Heineken Champions Cup.

Twenty two points from the boot of fly-half Handre Pollard and second-half tries from Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe secured a famous victory for the Springboks.

The result will be a devastating blow for England after they produced such a scintillating semi-final performance to dump defending champions New Zealand of the competition.

But England's vanquished players will have an opportunity to redeem themselves over the next few months as domestic rugby takes centre stage and BT Sport will be there every step of the way as England's crestfallen stars return to club duties.

Here are all the opportunities you will get to see England's World Cup heroes in action over the next eight months on BT Sport.  

Champions Cup 

The resumption of the greatest club competition in the world comes just in time to ease those Rugby World Cup withdrawal symptoms. 

BT Sport will once again be the only place you can watch every single minute of Champions Cup action when Europe's premier club competition resumes in November, including the knockout stages and the June 2020 showpiece in Marseille.

Last season saw a host of England's finest star as Saracens became the most successful team in European Cup history as they demolished Leinster in a one-sided final at St James' Park.

Now the north Londoners will have their eyes fixed on a fourth Champions Cup crown to take them level with Toulouse and Leinster as the competition's most decorated teams.

With the first round of pool-stage games penciled in for November 15 - two weeks after the World Cup final - there are sure to be a whole host of fascinating sub-plots as Europe's best players lock horns again.

Holders Saracens will need every single one of their England World Cup finalists to navigate a tough pool that features two-time European Cup winners Munster, French giants Racing 92 and Welsh side Ospreys. 

One player head coach Mark McCall will have to do without is full-back Liam Williams, who injured his ankle in Wales' quarter-final victory over Australia.

2011 Champions Cup finalists Northampton Saints are joined by four-time winners Leinster, Benetton and Lyon in pool one while Bath and Harlequins contest Pool Three with Clermont Auvergne and Ulster.

Elsewhere, Premiership runners-up Exeter will be hoping the arrival of Stuart Hogg can help lift their European hoodoo.

The full-back was a rare shining light in Scotland's disappointing World Cup campaign and the Chiefs will be hoping he can continue his good form for the Devonian side. 

Exeter's pool also contains Premiership rivals, Sale Sharks, who will once again marshaled by their superhero Springbok scrum-half, Faf de Klerk. 

BT Sport are broadcasting a mammoth 20 live games in November across two huge weekends of rugby.

This year’s curtain raiser pits Gloucester against Toulouse at Kingsholm on Friday 15 November.

Saracens begin the defence of their crown against French giants Racing 92 two days later on Sunday 17 November.

Glasgow Warriors, Sale Sharks, Bath, Ulster, Exeter Chiefs, Harlequins, Northampton Saints are also in action on BT Sport.

If you miss any of the action, you can tune into the Champions Cup highlights show on Sunday 17 November and Sunday 24 November from 5.30pm on BT Sport 2 HD.

Gallagher Premiership

BT Sport will be showing no fewer than 69 live games as European and league double winners Saracens look to replicate last season's heroics. 

Ben Spencer's last-minute call up ahead of the final meant the reigning Premiership champions provided no fewer than 16 men for England's World Cup campaign. 

International commitments around the Six Nations will limit the amount of game time for leading stars like Owen Farrell, Maro Itoje and the Vunipola brothers, but Saracens will be sure to draw on their exceptional firepower towards the business end of the regular season. 

Looking to run Saracens close once again will be Exeter Chiefs, who have lost out to the north Londoners in two of the last three play-off finals. 

Last year's runners-up will have Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and Luke Cowan-Dickie all returning to the south west of England on a World Cup high.

Leicester head into this season desperate to resurrect themselves after last season's dismal showing. 

Many of England's standout performers in Japan came from the Tigers.

If Geordan Murphy can get significant game time out of players like Manu Tuilagi, Jonny May, Dan Cole, George Ford and Ben Youngs, then the famous old side will be aiming for a top-four finish rather than looking over their shoulders like they were last season.

If you miss any of the live action, highlights packages will be available to watch on the BTSport app, while Rugby Tonight and Gallagher Premiership tonight will round up all the big talking points.
