Disaster strikes for Irish rugby fans all over Ireland as Munster v Leinster has now been called off due to an outbreak within the Leinster camp of Covid-19. Health comes first and foremost and we hope everyone at Leinster Rugby makes a speedy recovery. Leinster will still hope to play their fixture on New Years day against Ulster, so the right call was made here in order for that match to take place.
📢 Postponed | Munster's game against Leinster @thomondstadium on St Stephen's Day will not take place due to a number of positive Covid-19 cases.
We hope everyone remains well @LeinsterRugby
