The Irish Rugby Supporters Club is delighted to announce that tickets for the GUINNESS Series 2013 will go on sale on ticketmaster.ie at 10am on Thursday, May 30.
Connacht advised the Ulster Branch that they would not able to field a team, as eight of their players are involved with the Irish Development Squad.,p>They have also a large number of injuries to players after last weekends matches, which left them with only eleven available players.
The cancellation is a huge disappointment to the Ulster team and coach Alan Solomons, and a serious disruption to their preparation for their forthcoming Celtic League < final game against Glasgow.
There has been an exhaustive search by branch officials to find an alternative team, however this is proving difficult with a full programme of rugby in England this week and also a full and 'A' international taking place in Scotland.
