The IRFU and Leinster earlier this week revealed that they had launched an investigation into two alleged incidents following the province’s Guinness PRO14 title win over Glasgow last weekend.
In the first alleged incident an academy player was hospitalised following an altercation with a former Leinster player, and in the second alleged incident a current player urinated on a member of the public in a drunken incident.
Now in a statement to RTE Sport, Leinster say they have settled the first incident, confirming the payer received medical attention and has made a “full recovery”.
“Leinster Rugby is aware of an alleged incident that occurred in the early hours of Sunday 26 May 2019 involving one of our Academy players and a former Leinster Rugby employee.” a Leinster statement read
“An internal investigation was carried out by Leinster Rugby, which has concluded to the satisfaction of all parties and as a result we will not be making any further comment on the incident other than to confirm that the player in question received medical attention and that he has made a full recovery.”
Meanwhile the investigation into the second incident where a member of the public was allegedly urinated on, the IRFU says it is continuing to work on “education and awareness programmes” with its players as they liaise with Leinster.
“[We] can confirm that we are liaising with Leinster Rugby and a player to ascertain the facts around an alleged incident.” an IRFU statement read
“The IRFU condemns, and is committed to eliminating, any anti-social behaviour within the game, at all levels, and continues to work closely with our colleagues in Rugby Players Ireland on education and awareness programmes for our players.”
The IRFU did not say when it expects to conclude its investigation or whether or not the findings would be made public
