Pro D2 (J9): Three matches postponed

ByRoborto Sykes

Nov 4, 2020
Three more matches postponed in Pro D2! The National Rugby League announced on Wednesday that Perpignan – Béziers, Soyaux-Angoulême – Grenoble and Mont-de-Marsan – Valence-Romans would not take place this weekend, as planned, as part of the 9th day, due to cases of coronavirus in the workforce of Perpignan, Grenoble, Mont-de-Marsan and Valence-Romans. Two of these three matches have already found a new date on the calendar: Perpignan – Béziers will finally take place on Saturday November 14 at 9:00 p.m., and Soyaux-Angoulême – Grenoble on Friday November 13 at 7:00 p.m., while Mont-de-Marsan – Valence-Romans will take place at a later date. To date, while eight days have already been played, five teams have been able to play their eight games: the leader Vannes, but also Nevers (7th), Grenoble (8th), Béziers (9th) and Soyaux-Angoulême (16th). They will therefore be only three at the end of this week. Two teams, however, already have three games late: Biarritz (4th) and Colomiers (6th). The ranking does not therefore make much sense to date …
