Another Top14 match in danger due to Covid-19
NEWS: Covid-hit Bayonne’s Top 14 match against Toulon, scheduled for Friday, has been postponed because of coronavirus infections.
Bayonne have already seen two Top 14 games, against Castres on December 27 and Pau on January 2, postponed.
The Basque club, affected by the new coronavirus variant that was recently detected in Britain, announced Sunday they would not play their two final pool games of the European Challenge Cup, against Leicester and Zebre on January 15 and 22.
Bayonne said the decision was taken after confirmation Saturday that the last two positive cases at the club showed the new strain of Covid-19, likely contracted, it added, after hosting Leicester on December 19.
In a second reshuffling, Pau’s match against Clermont, initially set for Saturday, was also pushed back a day to Sunday, Top 14 organisers announced.
