• France-Scotland clash to go ahead

    The Six Nations match between France and Scotland will be played this weekend, despite Les Bleus being hit by a Covid-19 scare.

    It seemed like the match could well be called off after France head coach Fabien Galthie, two of his assistants and 10 players tested positive for coronavirus.

    However, further testing produced no more positive cases in the French camp.

    ‘Further to a meeting of the Six Nations Testing Oversight Group [TOG] this morning to review the latest tests results of the French Squad, the Six Nations confirm the plans to stage the France v Scotland match as originally scheduled this coming Sunday,’ a Six Nations statement read.

    ‘We continue to monitor the situation very closely and are in regular contact with both unions.’
