EPCR statement – Anthony Foley

Due to the tragic passing in Paris of Munster Rugby Head Coach and former captain, Anthony Foley, today’s European Rugby Champions Cup Round 1 match between Racing 92 and Munster Rugby has been postponed and will be rescheduled.

A legend of Irish and Munster rugby, Anthony Foley played for Ireland 62 times, captaining his country on three occasions. He also led Munster to their first European Cup triumph in 2006.

In all, he made 86 appearances in European competition for his province before taking over as head coach in 2014.

EPCR Chairman, Simon Halliday, said: “On behalf of EPCR, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Anthony’s family and to everyone associated with Munster and Irish rugby.

“He was a magnificent player and a superb coach and he will be sorely missed.”
