Cistercian College Roscrea has withdrawn its threat of taking High Court action over rules restricting pupils' involvement in the Leinster Schools Senior Cup.

The school - which won the Leinster Schools Senior Cup for the first time in 2015 - raised concerns over the '20-month' rule, which states that students must be enrolled in the school before fifth year in order to be eligible to play.

The school claimed nine of its pupils have been ruled ineligible to play in the tournament as a result of the rule.

A solicitor's letter was sent to the Leinster Schools Branch after Cistercian College asked its legal representatives to carry out a full review of the implementation of the rules.

However, in a statement released this evening, Leinster Rugby stated that the school has now withdrawn their threat of legal action.

"Cistercian College, Roscrea and the Leinster Rugby Branch engaged in mediated, constructive talks over the weekend," the statement said.

"The talks have concluded and both parties are very happy with the progress made.

"The regulations will be reviewed by the Leinster Rugby Schools Committee and the threat of legal action has been withdrawn by Cistercian College, Roscrea."
