Covid-19 has claimed a second Women's Six Nations match this weekend, with Scotland's trip to face Wales in Cardiff now postponed.

Ireland's clash with France in Dublin was called off on Wednesday after positive tests in the French camp. The venue had earlier been switched from France to help the Irish players overcome quarantine challenges.

One Scotland player has tested positive after four others were earlier withdrawn from the squad for Sunday’s game, having been identified as close contacts of French players who tested positive following the draw between the teams in Glasgow last weekend.

A Six Nations statement read: "These developments have made it unviable for Scotland to field a competitive team against Wales and a decision was made to also postpone this fixture.
