Glasgow Warriors issue Covid update as club cancel press briefing
Glasgow Warriors are continuing to deal with the effects of a Covid outbreak that led to the cancellation of their fixture against Edinburgh on Monday.
The first leg of the 1872 Cup clash due to be played at Scotstoun had to be postponed after a number of Glasgow players tested positive for the virus with the second leg at the DAM Health Stadium on Sunday, January 2 also under threat.
The United Rugby Championship took the decision to call off the fixture following discussions with Glasgow and Public Health Scotland with the challenge now to find a new date in an already congested calender.
Warriors have also taken the decision to postpone their Wednesday press briefing while they work their way through the ongoing situation.
A club statement read: “Glasgow Warriors continues to support its players that are isolating and are focused on mitigating any further risks to players and staff through its stringent COVID-19 protocols.”
Edinburgh have also been hit by a number of Covid cases this week and head coach Mike Blair was due to miss Monday’s game because he was isolating as a close contact.
