Blues move B&I tie with Munster to Ballsbridge

Leinster have moved their British & Irish Cup semi-final against Munster from Donnybrook to The RDS on Good Friday, April 6 ahead of the Heineken Cup quarter-final at the Aviva Stadium the next day.

"By moving this knock-out game to The RDS we also believe that it will help cater for what we anticipate will be a higher audience than normal," said Leinster Rugby Chief Executive Michael Dawson.

"It will kick-start a wonderful weekend of top-class rugby for our supporters ahead of the Heineken Cup quarter-final in the Aviva Stadium the following evening.

"Once again our season ticket holders will be rewarded with another opportunity to see the next crop of provincial talent for free in a competition which has steadily improved since its inception in the 2009/10 season.

"The team, under the stewardship of coach Colin McEntee, have performed consistently throughout the pool stages this year.

"The B&I Cup has once again helped provide our wider squad and burgeoning Academy talent with greater experience as well as the opportunity to play at a high level and on a consistent basis."
