Mid Wales Uilisi Halaholo has tested positive for Covid and will miss the test of his dreams against New Zealand, his country of birth.

The 31-year-old Cardiff midfielder was in line to play the All Blacks this Saturday, but was positive Tuesday morning for the routine testing schedule at the Wales camp.

He will now be isolated for 10 days from the rest of the team, which means that he is unlikely to face South Africa on November 6. Wales have called up Scott Williams, the 58-game international center whose last appearance was in 2019.

Auckland-born Halaholo was desperate to play New Zealand and revealed on social media that news of his positive test came just after discovering that his aunt, who named him, had died.

“It’s been a tough 24 hours,” he said. I found out that my aunt (almost a second mom to me) passed away last night. Then wake up this morning and test positive and you won’t be available for a game I’ve been working hard on since it was announced. Gutted. Congratulations to Scott Williams. Good luck brothers. ‘

Wales have even more trouble in their ranks ahead of Saturday’s game, already without seven England-based players, they were in short supply before Halaholo’s retirement.
