Rugby: France's Six Nations clash with Scotland postponed due to continuing positive COVID-19 tests

France's Six Nations rugby game against Scotland has been postponed after another player tested positive for COVID-19, bringing the total number infected to 11.

The Six Nations said in a statement that its Testing Oversight Group had met to review the situation in the French camp and unanimously recommended the postponement of Monday's (NZ time) match.

The statement added that the Six Nations would look to reschedule the fixture and would communicate the date in due course.

The French federation had said earlier that the entire French squad was in isolation and training had been suspended ahead of the game.

France lead the standings with two wins from two games, ahead of Wales on points difference, as they seek to lift the Six Nations title for the first time since 2010, the year of their last Grand Slam.

Scotland upset England at Twickenham in their opening game of this year's competition but then lost by one point at home to Wales in their second match.
