Georgian national rugby team’s Rugby Europe Championship last round fixture against Russia has been postponed

Georgian national rugby team’s Rugby Europe Championship last round fixture against Russia has been postponed as part of Rugby Europe’s suspension of all games under its organization until the end of November, because of the situation with coronavirus.


Originally scheduled for November 1, the game is part of the final round of this year’s calendar in the tournament along with Romania hosting Belgium, with no immediate announcement made on new dates.


“Despite the creation of Return to Play Protocol, we have to suspend our competitions to preserve the health of our players and our officials who are mostly “amateurs”. We cannot expose them to the virus or to quarantine periods that would be problematic for them. We still have to be patient before we can organize our competitions in the best conditions”, - said Octavian Morariu, the President of Rugby Europe.
