Faced with the discovery of several cases of coronavirus in the Montpellier workforce, the late match of the 3rd day of the Top 14 between Montpellier and Castres was once again postponed.

Like the meeting between Clermont and Lyon, a new postponement affects the duel between Montpellier and Castres. Initially scheduled for the weekend of October 3, the meeting between the MHR and the CO had been postponed to Friday, November 20 due to a wide spread of the coronavirus within the Castres workforce.

This time, it was following the discovery of several cases within the Montpellier workforce that the National Rugby League and its dedicated expert committee decided to postpone the meeting a second time to a later date., which remains to be fixed. Only three of the five late matches scheduled for this weekend, those between Stade Français Paris in Bordeaux-Bègles, Bayonne in Toulon this Saturday and La Rochelle in Racing 92 this Sunday should be played.

Castres-Brive finally advanced?

However, a fourth meeting could finally be added to this weekend’s program of catching up on the Top 14 calendar at the last minute. Indeed, while the late match of the 4th day between Castres and Brive has been rescheduled by the LNR for next Wednesday 2 December, ie between the 10th and 11th days of the Top 14, the president of the Brivist club Simon Gillham confirmed via his personal Twitter account that he had contacted the officials of the LNR in order to bring the meeting forward and reschedule it this weekend, in order to avoid the chain of three games in ten days for his team. A request which should very quickly be studied by the League, in agreement with the two clubs and the championship broadcaster.
