LEINSTER HAVE CONFIRMED that their preparations for the new season will begin with matches at Navan RFC and at Tallaght Stadium, the home ground of League of Ireland side Shamrock Rovers.

Leo Cullen’s men, who lost the final of the Pro12 to Connacht at the end of May, will take on fellow Pro12 side Ulster in Navan on Saturday 13 August, before facing Premiership outfit Gloucester seven days later in Tallaght.

Leinster’s final pre-season fixture will take place in the more familiar surroundings of the RDS Arena, where they take on Bath on Friday 26 August, who they were paired with in last season’s Champions Cup pool stages.

Leinster will be eagerly awaiting the draw for the Champions Cup which will take place on 29 June, with the fixtures for the Pro12 to follow a couple of weeks later.

Leinster v Ulster, Saturday 13 August, Navan RFC (Kick Off: 3.00pm)
