The meeting of the last day of the Top 14 between Pau and Montpellier, scheduled for Saturday (9:05 p.m.), is still on the program for the moment. After Paul Willemse tested positive for Covid-19, the MHR players underwent PCR tests on Monday morning, which all turned out to be negative.
A first relief for Montpellier. But especially for Pau. After the second line Paul Willemse tested positive for Covid-19 at the end of last week, the MHR players underwent PCR tests on Monday morning. And all of them turned out to be negative.
The trip to Pau, scheduled for Saturday on the last day of the Top 14 (9:05 pm), is for the moment maintained. The National Rugby League also wants this meeting to take place. While waiting for new tests scheduled by the weekend.
Pau in the fight with Bayonne in the standings
The stakes are high, especially for Section Paloise. Because in the event of a wave of contaminations in Montpellier, the match could simply be canceled. The equalization system would then be applied.
The two teams would be separated via a calculation taking into account the average points taken this season at home for Pau and away for Montpellier. And Sébastien Piqueronies’ players, currently 13th in the standings, would find themselves behind Bayonne (which has a 4-point lead), with a jump-off to play to keep their place in the top flight.
