Nothing to worry about.
Leinster continued their incredible run of form last night, with a six-try demolition of provincial rivals Ulster at the RDS. A brace each from Jordan Larmour, along with scores from Barry Dale and Johnny Sexton secured a 38-7 win.
Those of you at the game in Dublin last night might have noticed, or been part of, an incident that occurred in the Grandstand, with up to 12 fans forced to move from their seats due to concerns.
Leinster have since released a statement to confirm no one was hurt, explaining exactly what happened:
“At the Guinness PRO14 game between Leinster Rugby and Ulster Rugby on Saturday, 6th January 2018 in the RDS Arena there was an issue with the flooring in a single isolated row of seats at the back of Block L in the Grandstand.
As a result, up to 12 patrons were moved from their seats and the area was shut down by members of An Garda Síochána and Sword Security.
There were no injuries reported at the time and a formal investigation is now underway by the RDS in conjunction with their event safety management contractors Eamon O’Boyle & Associates.”
