It is the second successive week that the number of positives has dropped and comes after 997 personnel from the 12 Gallagher Premiership clubs were tested.

This comes after players were instructed to follow new rules that stipulate that they must not celebrate after scoring.

England’s clubs are currently completing a two-week break after the final two rounds of Europe’s group stages were postponed because of coronavirus fears.
