Irish Pro14 rugby union club Leinster has begun a formal investigation into its grandstand safety after issues with the flooring forced many fans to be moved during Saturday’s game.
No injuries were reported due to the incident that led the club to relocate up to 12 supporters and close the area off.
Leinster have insisted that social media reports of a “collapse” are “hugely wide of the mark,” but have pledged to investigate the incident in conjunction with safety officials.
The RDS Arena, Leinster’s home ground, worked alongside members of An Garda Síochána and Sword Security to amend the issue during the match against Ulster, which Leinster won 38-7.
The flooring issue was isolated to a single row of seats at the back of Block L in the stadium’s grandstand.
The 18,500-capacity venue was first opened in 1868, and has been renovated and expanded in 2007 and 2008.
