Munster's clash with Glasgow Warriors will go ahead as scheduled on Saturday despite the death of the Irish province's head coach, Anthony Foley.
 
Foley died of a heart problem in Paris on Saturday night. The 42-year-old's death led to the postponement of Munster's Pool 1 Championship clash against Racing 92 last weekend.

"EPCR can officially confirm that the Munster Rugby v Glasgow Warriors Champions Cup, Round 2 match will be played as scheduled at Thomond Park on Saturday," European Professional Club Rugby said via a statement on Wednesday. 

"The decision was made after close consultation with the Munster management."

EPCR also requested "that a minute's silence or a minute's applause" be observed in Foley's memory be observed at all Round 2 matches in the Champions Cup and the Challenge Cup.
