Scotland's Women's Six Nations match against France that was scheduled to take place in Glasgow on Saturday has been postponed due to a Scottish player testing positive for coronavirus.

A statement on Scottish Rugby's official website said the player had been "admitted to a health care facility as part of the protocol but was otherwise well", and that seven members of management and players were self-isolating on medical advice.

The Scotland team returned from northern Italy on Sunday, 23 February as their match against Italy was postponed.

The statement said: "This decision has been taken together with Scottish Rugby, the French Rugby Federation (FFR) and Six Nations.

"The Six Nations CEO has been in constant contact with Scottish Rugby and is in full support of this decision. The Scottish government has also been briefed."

Scottish Rugby's chief medical officer Dr James Robson said: "We are pleased that our player is doing well and that all the correct medical procedures have been followed and continue to be followed.

"We are working with the Scottish Government in continuing to observe and follow NHS advice."

The statement added: "Scottish Rugby request that the privacy of the players and management are recognised in these circumstances.

"Scottish Rugby will discuss with Six Nations the rescheduled dates for the matches."

As well as against Scotland, Italy's Women's Six Nations matches against Ireland and England had also already been postponed.

In the men's competition, the Italians' two outstanding matches have been called off, against Ireland and England. Scotland's match against France at Murrayfield on Sunday remains on.
