Leinster Rugby returned to training today at UCD following yesterday’s postponement and a full round of antigen and PCR tests which were carried out on site.

Leinster Rugby can confirm that the club is assisting an additional number of senior players who have tested positive for Covid-19 and are now self-isolating.

The latest cases follow the antigen and PCR testing which were carried out at Leinster Rugby on all players, coaches and staff.

The HSE has been informed in accordance with public health guidelines, as has EPCR.

The remaining members of the Leinster Rugby squad will train today in UCD and will continue to test daily and take all necessary precautions ahead of Friday’s Heineken Champions Cup game against Montpellier in France.
