Munster have announced that they are yet to make a decision on whether their Champions Cup match against Glasgow will go ahead on Saturday.

After the sudden death of Anthony Foley, the Irish province are making the Foley family their priority, as they said in a release on Tuesday.

"The Munster squad gathered in the high performance centre at UL today in working and planning towards Saturday's Champions Cup encounter with Glasgow Warriors at Thomond Park," read the province's statement.

"The squad are following a modified schedule this week with players and management yesterday signing books of condolence at Thomond Park, Irish Independent Park and at other locations across the province in memory of their colleague and friend Anthony Foley.

"The thoughts of Munster Rugby players, management and staff remain with the Foley and Hogan families and assisting them at this time continues to be the priority. Funeral arrangements are yet to be finalised, and details will follow once in place."

Munster will hold a press conference on Wednesday when director of rugby Rassie Erasmus and captain Peter O'Mahony will be in attendance.
