Tomorrow's Guinness PRO14 rugby match between Connacht and the Ospreys has been postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test at the Welsh side.

Back-row Paul Boyle had been due to skipper the Westerners for the first time in the game at the Sportsground.

"The game was due to take place on Saturday, November 28 in Galway, however, one Ospreys player has returned a positive case of Covid-19 and others identified as close contacts are now isolating," the league have announced in a statement.

"Having considered all the available evidence, the PRO14 Rugby Medical Advisory Group has deemed that this fixture cannot go ahead.

"Benetton Rugby, who played against Ospreys on Sunday, carried out routine squad testing this week and returned negative results all round.

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

The postponement follows the fixture between Scarlets and Leinster falling due to an outbreak of coronavirus in the Scarlets' camp earlier this week.
