Ulster's game with Benetton postponed


Ulster’s PRO14 clash with Benetton at the Stadio Communale di Monigo this Saturday has been postponed due to concerns around the coronavirus.

The Zebre v Ospreys game at the Stadio Lanfranchi in Parma has also been affected as the Italian authorities look to prevent unnecessary public gatherings following the diagnosis of several cases of the virus in the country over the past few days.

The Women’s Six Nations game between Italy and Scotland and four Serie A football fixtures were postponed over the weekend with restrictions set to continue until Sunday, March 1st, with the PRO14 and World Rugby monitoring the situation on a daily basis. 

Fixtures in Italy’s national rugby championship, Top 12 and all domestic rugby activities have also been affected. 

No re-scheduled dates have yet been announced.
