The ninth round Pro14 derby game between Munster and Leinster has been postponed.

The game was scheduled to be played at Thomond Park on Saturday but with Leinster Rugby "investigating the outcomes of some of the results", the organisers have decided to postpone the match to early next year.

“The game was due to take place on Saturday, December 26 in Limerick, however, Leinster are currently investigating the outcomes of some of the results from their latest round of Covid-19 PRC testing," read the satement.

“Results of these investigations will not be returned in time to meet guidelines set by public health authorities in order for the game go ahead as planned.

“Having considered this, the PRO14 Rugby Medical Advisory Group has agreed that this fixture cannot go ahead as scheduled.

“PRO14 Rugby will examine potential dates in early 2021 to reschedule the game.”

Both Munster and Leinster are yet to lose a game after playing seven matches and are positioned in top of Conference B and second in Conference A respectively.
