With the rate of covid as high as it is in Wales Toulon will be nervous about exposure on Friday.
Keep the faith

Well given the way the AP did it, the sides not affected win 28-0. 

Also despite 2 positive tests, including one player, the Dragons match will go ahead.

It's pretty obvious that the next month's games are the season's most watched games (on TV) in Wales.

I really hope that it doesn't make club think about how they can navigate a positive test in the club. The Dragons one sounds mighty suspicious to me.

surely they would have to provide evidence or face a ban like deano did over bloodgate?if not then it is wide open to abuse.

I'd tend to agree there.

Things been a bit dubious with the Dragons all along,imo.I was pretty astounded to hear Roberts say that he'd caught the virus after 'a long w/end trip to Croatia with some mates".Without sounding too draconian,I'd have thought that to be a little lacking in discipline,given the context.

LA Rochelle vs Bath has now been called off. Bath have said 12 players are in isolation after being identified as close contact with the scarlets player who tested positive after last weeks game. So does this mean that they are refusing to travel over to LA Rochelle with a 2nd string team and get a hammering? Because our game is still on and we've got 10 changes from last week. as is the Dragons game in Bordeaux

Correct. Wonder if they would feel the same if they had beaten us.

How do they have 12 players and not 15  who have been in close contact with our man? Watching the video would seem an inadequate way of determining how many players have been in close contact. And if they call the match off for playing against us, how are we still playing tomorrow? In our team tomorrow are players who were on the pitch all through last weeks game and so must have been in close contact. This competition is running into very choppy water.

How are more of their players in isolation than our players? Doesn’t make any sense??

I think there are quite a few. One positive test only.

I’m pretty convinced Bath are throwing this.
I know that will be called out as being incorrect.

I bet Bath haven’t mentioned most of their players going out for a few beers after the game in Bath..Looked to me as it was a Xmas party,one of the members of that gang could have contracted Covid
