Cill Dara RFC have been deducted twelve points in Division 1A of the Leinster League and have been ordered to play their first Provincial Towns Cup tie next season away from home. The penalties come after a Leinster Rugby Competitions Committee hearing last night (Thursday).

The Kildare club have been found guilty of a transfer form irregularity relating to one of their senior squad members but the club insist it was simply an ‘administrative error’.

Cill Dara’s Division 1A game against Wanderers, which was due to take place tomorrow (Saturday) has now been postponed and has been refixed for Sunday, March 9.
