Inter-Provincial Series in doubt

The future of the Railway Cup competition is up for debate again.

Connacht have refused to field a team in this year's competition, sparking fears that the December tournament - which in recent years has been re-branded as the Inter-Provincial series - will not take place.

Pete McGrath was the last winning manager of the competition - with Ulster beating Connacht in last year's final.

But he said he hasn't heard anything about this year's competition as of yet.
