Details of rescheduled Guinness PRO14 fixtures announced

Rescheduling details for a number of Guinness PRO14  games, that were postponed due to Covid-19, have been announced.

These rescheduled games will now take place between January 30 and February 13 next year.

PRO14 Rugby also confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that further rescheduled games will be confirmed in due course.

Leinster and Munster’s St. Stephen’s Day derby at Thomond Pak already had to be postponed last week due to an investigation into Leinster’s Covid-19 PCR testing.

Results of the investigation would not have been returned in time to meet guidelines set by public health authorities.

Leinster then announced on Tuesday that two of their senior players tested positive for Covid-19 with a number of close contacts to these players also self-isolating.

Leo Cullen’s side are due to take on Connacht in Dublin on Saturday.

Fixture lists for Rounds 12 to 16 of the Guinness PRO14 and Rainbow Cup are currently being drawn up.

In a statement on Wednesday afternoon, PRO14 Rugby said they’re “grateful to broadcasters and clubs for their flexibility and cooperation in ensuring that each game is played.”

The rescheduled games are as follows:

Saturday, 30 January
