CHRIS SUTTON has shared his dismay at the decision not to punish rugby after the Scottish Government made quite the public spectacle of football’s COVID wrongdoings, giving the game a yellow card after the Aberdeen players breach and Boli Bolingoli.

It has since transpired FOUR academy Edinburgh rugby players were at a house party against COVID rules. The players come into contact with the first team Edinburgh stars, one academy player has contracted COVID-19 and three are in isolation.

HOWEVER…

There are no postponements, no punishments and the squad are allowed to fly out to France to fulfil their fixtures.

It’s a major double standard and it comes off the back of Rugby being allowed test events before football.

Sutton isn’t happy.

Celtic are still waiting to take part in a Celtic Park test event even though they have been prepared for a number of weeks. The Livingston game could have been the time to go for it but because of new restrictions, it has been put off until at least October.
