The « clasico » in turn postponed!

While nine members of the Stade Français Paris have recently tested positive for the coronavirus, the NRL has decided to postpone the poster for the 13th day of the Top 14 between Toulouse and the Club de la Capitale to a later date.

The program for the 13th day of the Top 14 is shrinking! While, at first, the National Rugby League (LNR) cut its « Boxing Day » from the meeting between Racing 92 in Pau but also from the duel between Toulon and Bordeaux-Bègles due to a degraded health situation in the Ile-de-France, Béarnaise and Girondine groups, a third meeting had to be postponed. Indeed, with three new cases detected within the Clermont workforce, it is the Auvergne derby between Brive and ASM which will have to find a new date during the season. But finally, it is indeed four matches of this 13th day which cannot take place as initially planned since the large poster of the weekend suffers the wrath of the coronavirus.

The rugby « clasico » will change date

While more than 30,000 seats have been sold and the Stadium was to be generously stocked this Sunday, the match between Stade Toulousain and Stade Français Paris was officially postponed by the NRL to around ten hours from kick-off. Indeed, according to information from RMC Sport, the wave of tests recently carried out by members of the Club de la Capitale have detected no less than nine cases of coronavirus. Applying once again the precautionary principle, the NRL did not hesitate to give up canceling the match. « Due to the health situation of the Stade Français Paris workforce, following the tests carried out this morning, the LNR Competitions Committee, meeting urgently today, decided to postpone the match between Stade Toulousain and Stade Français Paris to a later date. », Announces the League via the account Twitter of the Top 14. Unless further postponed, only three matches will finally take place this Sunday and Monday.
