Coronavirus: Royal School Armagh and Wallace High to share Ulster Schools’ Cup

Royal School Armagh

The Royal School Armagh and Wallace High will both share the Ulster Schools’ Cup trophy, it has been announced.

It comes after Irish Rugby bosses cancelled all remaining domestic fixtures this season because of the coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak.

And given it was a Schools’ competition the decision to postpone indefinitely was not possible

The final was due to take place at Kingspan Stadium on its traditional St Patrick’s Day date on Tuesday.

RSA were aiming for a first title since 2004 while the Lisburn school were hoping for their first ever crown.

It’s first split title in the competition since a drawn final in 1996 saw Methody and Regent each take a share of the spoils.

The only other time the competition wasn’t completed was in 1911.
