The friendly between Scotland and Romania that took place on Saturday, July 10, was suspended due to cases of coronavirus in the Scottish team. The selected one is isolated and awaiting the decisions made by the national government. It should be remembered that the friendly vs England A last weekend had also been canceled.
At the moment, El Cardo has agreed on another match, the July 17 against Georgia, and the intention of part of the coaching staff is to dispute it. However, it is in doubt, because the Scottish players will have to undergo medical tests and will not have the necessary days to train thinking about the match.
Faced with this situation, the Chief Executive Officer of Scotland Rugby, Mark Dodson, stated: “The welfare of the players is paramount in every decision we make as an organization and unfortunately we are running out of time to allow our players to recover and train accordingly for the game with Romania,” he said.
Finally he added: “We are clearly disappointed and I am very sorry both for the group of players and for the coaching staff and also for the Romanian Rugby Federation, however the health of our team has to come first,” he closed.
