WASPS’ place in English rugby’s showpiece final is hanging by a thread after THREE more players tested positive for coronavirus yesterday.

Just 72 hours after four others tested positive, the club now has seven players self-isolating who would be unavailable.

A further round of testing has been ordered for both clubs today with a final decision set for tomorrow.

Bristol were informed of the development just as they were about to kick off a Hawaiian-themed party to celebrate their European Challenge Cup triumph.
