Stade Francais-Munster postponed


Sunday's European Rugby Champions Cup fixture between Stade Francais and Munster has been postponed, both clubs have confirmed.

The news comes in the wake of the Paris terror attacks on Friday, in which 129 people were killed in what appeared to be co-ordinated acts across the French capital.

The Pool Four meeting was due to take place at the Stade Jean Bouin, but the match has been postponed in order to ease the burden on Paris' emergency services.

Last weekend, all four games due to be held in France were postponed as a result of the atrocities in Paris.

"In light of recent and tragic events, Stade Francais does not wish to overburden or complicate the work of the government and security forces by organising a sporting event to bring together 15,000 people at Stade Jean Bouin," a statement from the Top 14 club read.

"The club has therefore decided to postpone the meeting of Stade Francais and Munser initially scheduled to take place this Sunday, November 22, 2015 at 16:15.

"In consultation with the authorities, the EPCR [European Professional Club Rugby] and LNR [Ligue Nationale de Rugby], a postponement date will be announced shortly."
