Irish league programme hit by European commitments
Yet again the AIB All Ireland League Programme has been curtailed this weekend as a result of European commitments.
League regulations allow any club who has two or more players in action with the Provinces to request a postponement and this has meant that seven games originally scheduled for tomorrow will now not take place, with a eighth moved to Sunday.
In Division Two the game between Galwegians and Wanderers was played last Monday, with Galwegians gaining a convincing win while Belfast Harlequins against Old Belvedere has be rearranged for the 18th March. The other affected game in Division two, Greystones against Blackrock has yet to be rearranged. In Division Three Bohemians against Instonians and Corinthians against Ballina are off while County Carlow against Midleton has been moved to Sunday, while in the bottom division Bangor's visit to Suttonians has also been postponed.
All other games being played in Munster have been switched to an early kick off to allow spectators, and players, to watch Munster's European Clash with Saracens in the afternoon.
