France Ireland game called off

The France v Ireland game in the Women's Six Nations has been called off due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the French camp

The game was originally due to be played in France but with Ireland facing complications due to quarantine rules for non-professional sport there, France had agreed to travel to Dublin.

However as Telegraph Sport reports, a number of the French camp have tested positive for the virus and so the game will not go ahead.

The tournament, won by England last weekend thanks to the draw between Scotland and France, has been plagued by challenges as a result of the pandemic.

There has been no official confirmation as to whether the game will be rearranged or is cancelled completely.

France are due to play England twice in November while Ireland are still preparing to play European qualifying games in December

Scrumqueens understands that the Six Nations are reviewing all tests for all teams, men and women, and will update on any additional challenges. Scotland will be anxiously waiting in particular, given their contact with the French squad last weekend.
