Connacht’s Guinness PRO14 round 4 match against Benetton Rugby this weekend has been postponed.

The game was due to take place on Sunday at the Sportsground, however, Benetton will not be able to travel to Galway due to a small number of isolated positive cases of Covid-19.

Public health guidelines in Italy currently prevent the Benetton squad from resuming rugby activities and, as a result, the fixture cannot take place as planned.

PRO14 Rugby can also confirm that the Scarlets, who Benetton played in Round 3, have returned negative results from their PCR testing this week.

PRO14 Rugby will examine potential dates in early 2021 to reschedule the game.
