France vs Scotland to go ahead on Sunday as planned

Scotland's Six Nations match against France in Paris on Sunday has been given the green light to go ahead despite 13 positive coronavirus tests in the French camp.

The Six Nations clash between France and Scotland has been in doubt due to 10 positive coronavirus tests among playing squad but organisers say it will now go ahead.

France registered no new positive tests in testing on Monday and Tuesday; Scotland had warned a postponement could affect player availability.

After no positive cases were returned from testing on Monday and Tuesday, France have now been given the go ahead to host Gregor Townsend's squad.

The Six Nations said in a statement: "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."
