Pro14 has confirmed that the round four clash between Connacht Rugby and Benetton Treviso to be played on Sunday has been postponed.

The decision follows after few of the squad members in the Italian side were tested positive for novel coronavirus and as a result the organisers have decided to reschedule the game to the start of the next year.

"Benetton will not be able to travel due to a small number of isolated positive cases of Covid-19," read a statement from Pro14.

"Public health guidelines in Italy currently prevent the Benetton squad from resuming rugby activities and as a result the fixture cannot take place as planned.

"PRO14 Rugby can also confirm that Scarlets, who Benetton played in Round 3, have returned negative results from their PCR testing this week.

"PRO14 Rugby will examine potential dates in early 2021 to reschedule the game."

Connacht are positioned third in the Conference B table with two wins from three games while Benetton are at the bottom after losing all their three matches.
