Any idea why all team announcements have been postponed until noon tomorrow. Is it to do with the virus?

Significant number of positive test results for the Sale squad.

Bit of a mess for Prem rugby to unpick.

Rumour is Sale might have to forfeit the game (number of positive tests is in double figures) against Worcester and will probably mean Sale miss out on playoffs.

Someone on the Bristol board had a guess that it could also involve Sarries having played Racing last week and who have 9 players tested positive.

If Sale canít put out a team, Bristol will be guaranteed a play off spot, so maybe they wonít feel that theyíre playing knock out rugby against us on Sunday. But then again...

Just looked at the table again. Looks like Bristol will need at least a point against us. Theyíll probably want to get above Bath as well, so as to avoid Exeter in the semis, so delete my earlier bout of optimism...
