Covid-19 strikes – again: Griquas v Bulls Currie Cup clash cancelled

The Currie Cup match between Griquas and the Bulls, scheduled for Tafel Lager Park in Kimberley on Saturday, has been cancelled in line with Covid-19 protocols.

The decision was taken on Thursday after players and management from the Bulls returned positive tests for Covid-19 this week. 

MATCH DECLARED A DRAW, 2 POINTS FOR EACH SIDE

As a result of the cancellation of the match, the encounter will be declared a draw and the teams will each receive two log points.

While Griquas are long out of the running for a playoff spot, the two points for the draw for the Bulls is particularly bad news.

They now hold a seven-point lead over the Sharks, but the men from Durban have two matches in hand and could well take over top spot – and the all important possible home final – as a result.

At this stage … the other two Currie Cup matches scheduled for this weekend between the Pumas and Cheetahs in Nelspruit on Friday (19:00), and the Lions v Sharks in Johannesburg on Saturday (19:00) are unaffected.

Western Province have a bye this weekend.
