The Rugby Football Union confirmed that the international friendly between the Barbarians and Samoa, scheduled for Twickenham on Saturday, has been called off.

“Due to six confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Barbarians team (four players and two members of staff), the professional game testing oversight group has advised that the fixture scheduled to be played against Samoa today is unable to proceed,” the RFU statement said.

“We appreciate that this is an extremely disappointing situation for the many fans due to attend, but the safety of all members of both teams is our priority.”

The fixture between the Barbarians’ women’s team and the Springbok women’s XV will go ahead.

A full automatic refund will be made to all ticket holders.

However, fans are encouraged to attend the Barbarians Women and Springbok Women’s XV [game].”
