Statement regarding floodlight failure at the RDS Arena during Leinster v Glasgow
April 28, 2017 / 11:06 pm / Site Editor
Leinster Rugby wishes to apologise to Glasgow Warriors and everyone that attended Friday evening’s Guinness PRO12 match at the RDS Arena.
The main generator and the back up generator failed, but to their credit the crew here at RDS worked incredibly hard to get one generator back so we could play the final 90 seconds of the match.
Thank you to both sets of supporters for their calm and patience, and to stewards, Gardaí and PRO12 Rugby staff for their cooperation.
Thank you to referee Marius Mitrea and his officials for their patience. Player and supporter safety was absolutely paramount and thankfully all is well.
A full and independent review of the incident will be carried out.
