Connacht v Ospreys called off after player tests positive for COVID

Galway Daily rugby Four changes made to starting XV for Connacht v Glasgow

The Connacht v Ospreys which was due to take place today has been postponed due to an Ospreys player testing positive for COVID-19.

The game was due to take place at the Sportsground this evening at 7:35pm, but has now been called off.

One Ospreys player has returned a positive case of Covid-19 and others identified as close contacts are now isolating.

Having considered all the available evidence, the PRO14 Rugby Medical Advisory Group has deemed that this fixture cannot go ahead.

“PRO14 Rugby will examine potential dates in early 2021 to reschedule the game,” a statement from Connacht Rugby said.

“Everyone at Connacht wishes the Ospreys player a speedy recovery and we look forward to welcoming them to The Sportsground early next year.”
