Munster Confirms That Saturday's Match Will Go Ahead
Either a minute's applause or minute's silence be held at all European games this weekend
Munster Rugby Team has confirmed that Saturday’s Champions Cup game against Glasgow at Thomond Park will go ahead.
Yesterday, the province, who are in modified training as they deal with the passing of head coach Anthony Foley at the weekend, cancelled Saturday's match but indicated they would fulfil the European tie at 1pm this Saturday.
The news was confirmed at a press conference where director of rugby Johan Erasmus and captain Peter O’Mahony spoke about their loss.
An emotional O'Mahony said:
I can't do [Anthony Foley] justice here. He's been there since the start, every team that I supported he was in it.
European Professional Club Rugby (EPRC) said in a statement that the decision to go ahead with the Pool 1 tie "was made after close consultation with the Munster management".
The EPRC has also stated that either a minute's silence or a minute's applause be held at all European games this weekend.
