Illness and injury force postponements for Xala, Aimar and Ezkurdia
The Manomansia quarter finals between Xala and Irujo (scheduled for Sunday in Bilbao) and between Olaizola II and Retegi Bi (originally Monday in Tolosa) have both been postponed. Xala has flu and has been ruled out by the Aspe medical staff. His match will now take place at Bizkaia on Saturday 26th. Aimar Olaizola cannot play his match owing to an edema in his right arm. He and Julen Retegi will now meet on Sunday 27th in Pamplona.
Mishap has also befallen the Promocion Championship; Joseba Ezkurdia has sprained his ankle and his semi final against Alvaro Untoria will now take place on 3rd June rather that 27th May, at a fronton yet to be determined.
