“Munster Rugby Head of Medical, Dr Jamie Kearns, said: “We have taken all necessary precautions this week by standing down squad training and carrying out a second round of testing. The is the second positive test result from PCR testing that has been carried out this week and is a direct link to the first reported case.  Both players are being monitored medically and remain well.
In consultation with public health the squad have been given clearance to return to training on Friday morning and will follow the scheduled plans for round 2 of the Guinness PRO14 this weekend.
“We are very grateful for the support from public health services and thankfully the processes we have in place help us mitigate the risk factor as we prioritise the health and safety of our players and staff.
“We look forward to resuming our training programme tomorrow this Friday.”
