The much-anticipated Guinness PRO14 festive derby between Munster and Leinster has been postponed.

The game was due to take place on St. Stephen’s Day, this Saturday, in Limerick, however, Leinster Rugby are currently investigating the outcomes of some of the results from their latest round of Covid-19 PCR testing.

Results of these investigations will not be returned in time to meet guidelines set by public health authorities in order for the game go ahead as planned.

Having considered this, the PRO14 Rugby Medical Advisory Group has agreed that this fixture cannot go ahead as scheduled.

PRO14 Rugby will examine potential dates in early 2021 to reschedule the match.
