‘All clear’ after Munster and Leinster Covid 19 testing results

IT was a case of ‘all clear’ this week for the players of Munster and Leinster. The IRFU (Irish Rugby Football Union) confirmed that the PCR testing of players and staff of the two provinces this week produced zero positive results. 153 players and staff were tested across the two provinces.
The staff and players have been cleared to enter the next phase of their return to rugby which includes a graduated return to contact training.
To date there have been 560 tests conducted across the professional player and staff group and zero positive tests reported.
According to the IRFU Medical Director Rod McLoughlin, “The second round of PCR testing is now complete ahead of the graduated return to contact. The players and staff will continue to undergo daily medical screening and assessment. The next phase of testing will take place ahead of the Guinness PRO14 fixtures in August.”
