Six Nations organisers have confirmed that France vs Scotland will go ahead as planned this weekend despite the COVID-19 outbreak that has ravaged Les Blues.
Head coach Fabien Galthié tested positive last week as well as a number of key players in recent days including star player Antoine Dupont and captain Charles Ollivon.
But the game will be going ahead as things stand with the situating continuing to be monitored.
In a statement released this afternoon Six Nations organisers said:
“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.
“We continue to monitor the situation very closely and are in regular contact with both unions.”
