France players and staff all test negative for coronavirus ahead of decision over Scotland match

The French Rugby Federation have confirmed there have been no further positive Covid-19 tests among its playing squad or backroom staff as they continue preparations for this weekend’s Six Nations game against Scotland in Paris.

The players that tested positive have all been replaced in the 31-man squad.

Six Nations officials said over the weekend they were confident the game in Paris would go ahead.

Scotland warned Monday that a delay could affect the availability of its own players. 

“Any postponement will have an impact on the player release agreement in place with clubs, which could see more than 10 Scotland players unavailable for selection if the game is rearranged,” the Scottish Rugby Union posted on Twitter. 

“We will be working closely with our Six Nations counterparts to press the case for this week’s game to go ahead, should it be medically safe to do so.”
