A date has reportedly been set for Munster’s postponed Champions Cup clash with Racing 92.
The original fixture was set to take place on October 16th but was postponed due to the untimely death of Munster head coach Anthony Foley. Thousands of Munster fans gathered that day inside and outside the stadium in a marvellous show of solidarity with all involved at the club.
That fixture now has a new day with Le Parisien reporting that Munster will now play Racing 92 on Friday, January 6.
This means that PRO12 officials will have to reschedule Munster’s league clash with Edinburgh, which had initially been scheduled for January 7. The likelihood is the PRO12 game will move to either the last weekend of January or the first weekend of February.
It will also mean Munster will have three weekends of consecutive Champions Cup action – Racing [away], Glasgow [away] and Racing [home].
Racing’s Top 14 clash with Bayonne would then move to a free weekend during the Six Nations championship.
