The duel that was to be played this afternoon will not finally take place. At set of Warriors several players tested positive, so it was decided to suspend the duel for the eighth date and postpone it. This was the official statement: “The game was to take place on Monday, December 27 in Glasgow, but there were a number of positive Covid-19 cases in Glasgow Warriors that were reported by the club. The URC group of doctors contacted the team and Scottish Public Health and the match was deemed unable to continue as scheduled. The United Rugby Championship will now consider new dates to reschedule the match. “

The eighth date had only one match completed than Benetton’s 39-14 victory over Zebre. All the other games were postponed due to cases of the virus in the different teams: Cardiff-Scarlets, Ulster-Connacht, Ospreys-Dragons, Munster-Leinster and, now, Glasgow-Edinburgh.
