Rugby-Premiership agrees to release Lions players before warm-up game with Japan
Premiership Rugby announced on Tuesday that it has reached an agreement with the British & Irish Lions to release its players at the end of their domestic commitments and before their warm-up game against Japan.
The match against Japan on June 26 is being held outside World Rugby's Regulation 9 window for the release of players for international rugby and the game clashes with the Premiership Final.
Premiership Rugby said they will not release players until after the Premiership final in the future.
