Top 14: the Brive-La Rochelle match will be postponed

The match between Brive and La Rochelle, initially scheduled for Saturday afternoon, will be postponed due to eight additional cases of Covid-19 detected on Tuesday in the Correze workforce. For the CAB, this is the second consecutive weekend without a game.

The match between Brive and La Rochelle, scheduled for Saturday on behalf of the 22nd day of Top 14, will be postponed by the National Rugby League. The announcement must be made on Tuesday.

The Corréziens have been placed in solitary confinement since last Thursday, and for seven days, after the appearance of six cases of Covid-19 (British variant), resulting in the postp onement of the derby against Clermont. But the CAB announced eight additional cases of Covid on Tuesday morning. “All of the club’s teams are continuing their period of isolation and new tests will be organized on Thursday April 22,” read the club’s press release.

The Top 14 has been facing a mess of cancellations for ten days. Four games had already been postponed last weekend.

Bad news also for the Rochelais who will have to observe a weekend of stop. Not necessarily the best preparation for the European Cup semi-final against Leinster the following weekend (May 2, 4 p.m.).
