In consequence, Benetton have now certified for the Rainbow Cup last on June 19.
The Ospreys are working intently with Public Well being Wales following the most recent spherical of Covid-19 testing on the area which returned three optimistic outcomes.
The choice to cancel the sport is a results of the mandate from Public Well being Wales that every one people who had been a part of the travelling social gathering from the earlier fixture at the moment are required to self-isolate in-line with public well being protocols.
With no accessible weekends remaining, the sport is not going to be rescheduled.
In consequence, PRO14 rugby will use the protocol determined previous to the 2020/21 season whereby a sport that might not be rescheduled would lead to that fixture deemed a 0-0 draw, however 4 match factors could be awarded to the staff who had not been the reason for the postponement.
On this case, Benetton will obtain 4 match factors. This protocol ensures that no synthetic scoring factors had been added to the tries/factors for and in opposition to columns.
Including 4 factors to Benetton’s present complete of 18 will present the Italian staff with a last standing of twenty-two factors.
It’s mathematically unattainable for another staff within the desk to win greater than 20 factors, due to this fact Benetton would be the ‘Northern’ consultant within the last.
