Former Stormer and current Benetton captain Dewaldt Duvenage has led his Italian team to the final of the Rainbow Cup at their home ground on June 19.
The Italians had their Round 6 match against Wales’ Ospreys, scheduled for Saturday, cancelled after positive Covid-19 cases in the latter’s squad.
And with the four log points given to Benetton they now have an unassailable 22 points.
A statement on Pro Rugby’s website reads: “With no available weekends remaining, the game will not be rescheduled. As a result, Pro14 Rugby will use the protocol decided prior to the 2020/21 season whereby a game that could not be reschedule would result in that fixture deemed a 0-0 draw, but four match points would be awarded to the team who had not been the cause of the postponement.
“This protocol ensures that no artificial scoring points were added to the tries/points for and against columns.”
