However, Leinster is currently investigating the outcomes of some of the results from their latest round of COVID-19 PRC testing.

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 medical advisory group has agreed that this fixture cannot go ahead as scheduled.
