Scotland calls off fixture with Romania

Scotland calls off fixture with Romania

Scottish fans will be disappointed by the recent news that the fixture against Romania has been called off due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in the Scotland camp. 


The game was scheduled to play out on 10 July. At present, all players and coaches are in isolation.  


Scottish Rugby chief executive Mark Dodson said:  


"Player welfare is paramount in every decision that we make as an organisation and unfortunately we've run out of time to allow our players to recover and train properly for the Romania fixture. 


"I feel massively for both our group of players and management, as well the Romanian Rugby Federation, however our squad's health and well-being must come first. 


"We still have every intention of travelling to face Georgia the following week, subject to further medical review and testing, and we'll hopefully be in a position where a large section of the squad will be able to return to a graduated training regime next week."
