A statement reads: “The Round Nine Pro14 fixture between Zebre and Benetton has been postponed.

“The game was due to take place on Saturday, December 26 in Parma.

“However, Benetton has reported a small number of positive cases of Covid-19 from last week.

“Having considered all of the information available and considered local health guidelines, the Pro14 Rugby Medical Advisory Group has deemed that this fixture cannot go ahead as scheduled.

“Pro14 Rugby will examine potential dates in early 2021 to reschedule the game.”
