CAPE TOWN – The PRO14 Rainbow Cup SA match between the Stormers and Lions, which was set to take place on Saturday, has been called off in line with Covid-19 protocols.
The cancellation of the Round Six fixture comes after a number of Lions players tested positive. As a result, according to competition rules, the Stormers will be awarded four log points because of the cancellation.
In the other Rainbow Cup SA match, the Sharks will take on the Bulls in Durban to determine who will travel to Italy to battle it out against Benetton in the north-south final on June 19.
The Bulls are at the top of the table with 20 points and need just a single log point to book their flight. The hosts of the last Rainbow Cul SA match need a bonus-point win to cause an upset and qualify as the other finalist.
