Munster v Leinster showdown in Pairc Ui Chaoimh won't happen this year
A historic clash between Munster and Leinster at Pairc Ui Chaoimh is still some way off the cards.
A report this morning suggested that a PRO14 meeting between the two rivals could take place as early as this December in the annual festive inter-pro derby, but Independent.ie understands that is not the case.
Although it remains a possibility that the glamour fixture may be held at the home of Cork GAA some time in the future, discussions between parties have not reached a stage where an agreement has been put in place.
Munster are set to host Leinster at Thomond Park on Saturday, December 28.
While Pairc Ui Chaoimh is not yet in line to open its doors to Munster Rugby, Irish Independent Park will host several PRO14 clashes as well as the province's first pre-season friendly against London Irish on September 13.
