Leinster Rugby have postponed their training as they await the results from the latest round of Covid-19 testing.

The Irish province revealed last week that three senior players and one member of staff had tested positive for Covid-19.

"Given the positive Covid-19 cases in Leinster Rugby ahead of Saturday's Heineken Champions Cup game against Bath Rugby, Leinster Rugby will undergo another full round of antigen and PCR testing at its UCD base today," read a statement for the club.

"As a further precaution, until all results are confirmed, today's training in UCD has been postponed until tomorrow.

"The IRFU (Irish Rugby Football Union) and EPCR (European Professional Club Rugby) have been consulted in advance of this decision, which has been taken in the best interests of Leinster Rugby players and staff."

Leinster kick-started their European Champions Cup campaign with a 45-20 win over Bath Rugby at Aviva Stadium last weekend and will face Montpellier in the second round on Friday.
