Ulster v Ospreys Game Postponed Again

Ulster v Ospreys Game Postponed Again

The Magners League Round 11 fixture between Ulster and the Ospreys, which had been rearranged for Friday, March 19 at Ravenhill, has been postponed.

The reason for the postponement is that the Ospreys are unable to supply suitably experienced front row players in their match squad as is required under the Magners League rules and IRB rules.

This rule was introduced for health and safety reasons and Celtic Rugby could not sanction a match in these circumstances.

Celtic Rugby recognises the great inconvenience this will have on Ulster and their supporters as well as Celtic Rugby’s commercial partners, particularly BBC Wales who were due to broadcast the match live.

Until Celtic Rugby has had the opportunity to review the matter, there will be no further comment.

The original Ulster v Ospreys league clash had to be postponed in January due to the wintry weather conditions.
