The Celtic League have confirmed that three fixtures - involving Leinster, Munster and Ulster - have been re-arranged during the title run-in next month.
Munster's re-arranged game against Llanelli Scarlets will be played on Tuesday, May 9 at Stradey Park. The kick-off will be 7.05pm. This fixture had been held over until the Irish finalist for the Heineken Cup had been decided.
The busy Scarlets' other outstanding fixture - against Ulster - will be played on Friday, May 19 (kick-off 7.10pm) at Stradey Park.
The final re-arrangement will see Cardiff Blues host Leinster at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Sunday, May 14 - with kick-off at 6.10pm. The change of time and venue is due to the switch of the English FA Cup Final the previous day to Cardiff.
