Ulster's Pro14 clash with Leinster at the Aviva Stadium will go ahead this Saturday night after both squads got the all-clear following the latest round of Covid-19 testing. 

On Wednesday evening, Ulster released a statement confirming they had suspended training after eight academy players tested positive for the coronavirus.

One senior player was identified as potentially being a close contact. He has since tested negative but remains in self-isolation in line with public health advice.

Ulster senior training recommenced at the Kingspan Stadium today.

Results from Munster are expected later this evening, with Connacht's due to arrive on Friday. Those two meet in the weekend's other inter-pro derby at Lansdowne Road on Sunday afternoon.

"We have now had two occurrences of Covid and while the primary focus and concern will always be player health, it is good to see that the systems and protocols that have been put in place are working," said IRFU medical director Rod McLoughlin.

"We will now use these experiences to refine our systems and protocols as we continue to operate in this new environment."
