The United Rugby Championship clash between Scarlets and Dragons on Saturday has been postponed after further Covid cases were detected in the Dragons’ squad.
The derby fixture was due to take place at Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli, but is the latest to fall foul of the pandemic after the Christmas schedule was heavily disrupted.
“A number of positive Covid-19 cases within the Dragons playing squad have been reported by the region,” the URC said in a statement.
“The URC Medical Advisory Group has liaised with the region, and having considered all the facts have deemed that the fixture cannot go ahead as scheduled.
“The United Rugby Championship will now consider available dates to reschedule the game.”
The Dragons last played on December 17, and have now seen three successive URC fixtures postponed.
