LIMERICK'S six senior rugby clubs are due to face fixtures in Munster Conferences 1 and 2 of the new Community Series this Saturday.

A post on Shannon's social media channels confirmed: "Following discussions between the IRFU and Highfield RFC and the process put in place around matches affected by Covid 19, our Energia Community Series game due to be played tomorrow, has been called off. Both teams receive two points each and a 0-0 score shall be entered."
