UPDATE: Leinster have launched an investigation after fans had to be moved from a section of the grandstand at the RDS Arena during the Pro14 clash against Ulster.

At the match on Saturday, there was an issue with the flooring in a single isolated row of seats in the grandstand.
 
As a result, up to 12 patrons were moved from their seats and the area was shut down. 
 
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.

Leinster also confirmed that reports of the grandstand collapsing were not true.

There are currently no matches being played
