After both the game between Leicester and Newcastle and Bath and London Irish were canceled due to positive cases in Covid-19, the Premiership organization decided to give the victory to the Falcons and Bath, adding four points in the table to each.
Regarding the Tigers and London Irish, they scored two points and both matches will show the result 0-0, although both clubs are considered to have lost.
One of the games for the fourth date of the contest was canceled after the Tigers returned a small amount of positive tests during the week. Additionally, a large amount of the roster was discarded due to close contact, prompting the training ground to close to guard against the possibility of a significant outbreak at the club.
With the players now isolated, Leicester was unable to fulfill its shock obligations for the Premiership. Let’s remember that among the ranks of the English club are the Argentines Matías Moroni, Tomás Lavanini and Joaquín Díaz Bonilla.
Something similar happened in London Irish, which has Agustín Creevy among its ranks, and, in addition, since the tests were carried out on Monday, December 21, they have had players (who gave negative results) who experienced symptoms. These players were also isolated.
“The health and safety of the players, staff, management, referees and the fans is our only priority, so the right decision was made to suspend play,” they said from Premiership Rugby.
