Sad to see Natasha Hunt having to withdraw. However what i do not understand is;
'There were no other positive tests among the England squad and no-one else was forced to isolate because they had come into close contact with Hunt.' Has she been in the gym, rugby training, having meetings and eating on her own for the last few days? Can someone explain?

The RFU has a risk assessment which we use at the Club when a positive test is reported. for there to be close contact requires les than 1 metre and non-fleeting, i.e. greater than 3 seconds. Under normal training this is rarely achieved, however it may be if contact training has taken place. If the team wore masks when inside their hotels then that also reduces the close contact. I would imagine the assessment is based around those criteria.
