Despite the best efforts of the ground staff at the RDS, today’s Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Schools Senior Cup Final has been postponed due to overnight snow in and around the stadium.

A first pitch inspection took place at 7.30am this morning and while the pitch itself was covered overnight and was in good condition under the covers, consistent and heavier snow fall this morning would have made playing conditions near impossible.

Ultimately the health and safety of the Belvedere College and Blackrock College players, as well as their supporters travelling to and from the stadium, is of utmost importance and as a result the match has been postponed.

The game will now go ahead on Friday, 23rd at 2.00pm in the RDS Arena.

Supporters are asked to retain their tickets but any supporter unable to attend the refixture can avail of a full refund at the point of purchase.
