Irish provinces not expected back at training till mid May

The Irish rugby provinces are not expected to resume collective training until the middle of May.

All professional rugby in the country is currently suspended and the PRO14 and Champions Cup campaigns are now likely to stretch into July and August.

The changes to the season as a result of the coronavirus have also left Ireland’s summer tour of Australia in major doubt.
