Graham Rowntree’s side were set to face Cardiff on Friday September 16th.
Munster’s first round fixture in the United Rugby Championship against Cardiff Rugby has been moved back one day and will now kick off at 3:05pm this Saturday.
The clash was originally scheduled to take place on Friday but has now been rescheduled to facilitate King Charles III and the British Queen’s Consort’s visit to Cardiff.
The fixture’s rescheduling in a statement from the URC that reads:
Originally due to take place on Friday night, significant logistical challenges have occurred due to the visit of Britain’s King Charles III and the British Queen’s Consort to Cardiff on September 16.
Broadcast facilities for both the host broadcaster (BBC Wales) and other TV facilities providers will be engaged in the coverage of the visit and the drain on available resources has resulted in the rescheduling of the game.
The BKT United Rugby Championship would like to thank both Cardiff Rugby and Munster for their understanding in this matter which has occurred under very unique circumstances. It is also appreciated that BBC Wales made every effort to keep the fixture in its original date and time slot.
The Cardiff Rugby v Munster will be broadcast live on BBC Wales, RTÉ 2, Premier Sport, SuperSport and URC.tv.
