Leinster v Scarlets OFF


Leinster's Guinness PRO14 game against Scarlets scheduled for this weekend has been postponed.

The reigning champions had been due to travel to Llanelli to face Scarlets on Sunday, but the game has had to be cancelled as a number of players for the Welsh side have tested positive for Covid-19, while others have been identified as close contacts.

On the advice of the PRO14 Rugby Medical Advisory Group, the fixture has been postponed and PRO14 Rugby will examine potential dates in the hope of rescheduling the game for early 2021.

Meanwhile, the Ulster squad will undergo testing after playing Scarlets last weekend.
