The French Rugby Federation insists they will not be asking to postpone Sunday’s Six Nations game with Scotland.
Eleven players, including captain Charles Ollivon and four members of their coaching team, have tested positive for coronavirus.
The match is due to take place in Paris. Six Nations organisers say they’ll make a decision regarding the fixture tomorrow.
But French rugby vice-president Serge Simon is adamant the game will go ahead as planned.
They’ve said today (Tuesday) that there have been no further positive Covid-19 tests among their playing squad or backroom staff. The players that tested positive have all been replaced in the 31-man squad.
France leads the standings with two wins from two games.
Meanwhile, after four rounds of PCR testing since the defeat to France, Ireland’s players remain free of Covid-19.
The squad is back training today ahead of Saturday’s six nations match with Italy in Rome.
