Dragons Rugby and the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) have collaboratively and proactively taken the decision to temporarily shut the region's training base following the latest results of the COVID-19 testing programme.
Dragons returned seven new positive COVID-19 tests this week as part of the Welsh Rugby’s weekly testing programme.
Working closely with and supported by Public Health Wales, the decision has been made that no training or games will be take place during this time.
This course of action has the full backing of the PRO14 Medical Advisory Group.
The decision has been taken to ensure health and safety of all those at the region and to reduce further transmission. All players, management and staff at the region are to self-isolate and follow all Public Health Wales guidelines. Additional testing (in addition to the current programme) will also be part of these measures.
The affected Dragons Guinness PRO14 fixtures are:
- R5 v Connacht (H)
- R6 v Glasgow Warriors (A)
The Round 7 fixture with Edinburgh will be under review as players are put through a testing programme.
Munster Rugby, who played against Dragons last weekend, have returned a full list of negative results from their PCR testing this week.
PRO14 Rugby will examine potential dates in early 2021 to reschedule these games.
