Munster have revealed there have been nine positive cases of Covid-19 among their travelling players and staff in South Africa.

This followed another round of PCR testing in Cape Town.

The remaining party of 38 have returned negative results and are isolating in their hotel rooms.

Another round of PCR testing will take place today.

When the results come in Munster may be able to make a determination about travel back to Ireland.

That's for those who are not carrying the virus.

The individuals affected by the positive cases - the nine today and a previous case, will remain in Cape Town until the end of their isolation period.

The news puts Munster's ability to prepare and turn out for the Heineken Champions Cup game against Wasps in doubt.

It is scheduled for Sunday December 12th.
