The meeting between Montpellier Y Leinster, corresponding to the second date of the Champions Cup, for further positive results at the Leinster campus. The tournament authorities made the decision to win the match to the French team 28-0.

The Champions Cup Group A match was canceled and Montpellier added five units: “The Match Risk Assessment Committee, made up of doctors from the EPCR Medical Advisory Group, as well as an independent medical specialist with experience in virology, reported to EPCR of their concerns following the new positive Covid-19 test results of the Leinster Rugby playing team, and regrettably the decision was made to cancel the match, “the contest said in a statement.

It should be remembered that the duel between Pau and Saracens for the Challenge Cup will not take place either: “The EPCR wishes to thank the efforts of both clubs to comply with the match, and would also like to emphasize that the award of the match to Montpellier is a tournament management measure in order to ensure that all Heineken Champions Cup 2021/22 matches are counted, and not a penalty, “the Champions Cup statement concluded.
