During the last days, Stade Francais canceled a friendly that was scheduled to play against Brive in Tulle on Friday, August 14, after announcing that several cases of Coronavirus had been registered in the squad. However, this Sunday, the French media Rugby Rama reported that there are 17 cases of affected so far.
Now, the situation of the team led by Gonzalo Quesada and in which Nicolás Sánchez, Pablo Matera and Marcos Kremer play is even more worrying, which is why the 14 main managers of the Parisian institution have asked the NRL to establish a meeting to try to relax the protocol.
Covid-19 has also been recorded in Agen and Lyon of the Top 14, and in SAXV and Provence Rugby of the Pro D2. The press release released from the Stade Francais says: “The latter, asymptomatic, were immediately isolated and quarantined.”
This Monday, all players and other staff members will be tested again. And according to that, we will have to see, in the next few hours, what will happen to the other matches that were in the plans of the team from the capital of France: the friendly on Thursday 27 August against Toulon at the Mayol stadium and the match of the first day of the Top 14, on Friday, September 4, against Santiago Cordero and Guido Petti’s Bordeaux, at the Jean Bouin stadium.
