Premiership Rugby have revealed that it is carrying out an urgent review ahead of Sunday’s final round of Gallagher Premiership Rugby matches.
Sale Sharks announced last night that they had suffered “a number of positive COVID-19 tests” this week, and we are aware there are also positive tests at other clubs.
However, despite the Sharks saying their game on Sunday would go ahead, Premiership rugby have denied this has been decided.
Darren Childs, Chief Executive of Premiership Rugby said: “The health and well-being of our players and staff is our priority.
“More than 900 PCR COVID-19 screening tests were carried out on Thursday. On Friday we received the results, which was followed by a comprehensive Contact Tracing programme at our clubs, created by those positive tests.
“These results are being analysed with the help of Public Health England and the local health authorities involved. This will allow a decision to be made over the Sale Sharks v Worcester Warriors match, and any others that have been affected by positive results.
“We understand the stakes are very high this weekend but we have a responsibility to everyone involved with Premiership Rugby to ensure a methodical process is followed, and this cannot be rushed.”
