France’s Guinness Six Nations clash with Scotland in Paris is to go ahead following a second consecutive day of no positive Covid tests in the French squad.
The entire squad tested negative has been able to resume training ahead of Sunday’s Round 3 fixture.
The Six Nations released a statement saying: “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.”
France have won their first two games in the 2021 Guinness Six Nations and currently lead the way, while Scotland were beaten at home by Wales in Round 2 after their opening victory away to champions England.
Elsewhere in Round 3, Ireland travel to Rome to take on Italy while later on Saturday unbeaten Wales host defending champions England in Cardiff.
