Something must've gone seriously wrong with the bubble, as either players or members of the coaching side have been in contact with the outside world without taking necessary precautions.
The new players that have been brought in are good but won't have been involved in the day to day squad training, so a postponement until the following weekend would seem to be the best option.

Is there a rest weekend next week? If so for the integrity of the tournament I would postpone the French fixture to next weekend, might have to change the referees but it's not an impossible task in my book.

Latest PCR testing results on French squad: https://twitter.com/francerugby/status/ ... 13696?s=21

Update on the health situation

Following the RT-PCR tests carried out last night, all of the players and management [that aren’t isolating] tested negative for Covid-19.


Fingers Crossed, that’s the outbreak controlled.

Nice to see Curry offering George Martin some 1-1 advice during the latest O2 Inside Line episode, really think he's going to come back to us a better player

For the second day in a row, no more positive tests in the French camp.

Yeah that was class from Curry, already has become a leader within the England squad. It beggars belief that this summer will be 4 years since his first cap versus Argentina, time does fly.

From this which Chris Egerton has retweeted

The suggestion is that Galthié broke the bio-bubble himself bit is trying to deflect blame to a physio

So the France v Scotland games is to go ahead on Sunday, which has to be the correct decision.

This could be the French starting XV:
Bouthier; Penaud, Fickou, Danty, Thomas; Jalibert, Serin; Jelonch, Alldritt, Cretin; Willemse, Le Roux; Bamba, Bougarit, Kolingar

Ok, so they're missing some regulars, but that's a very good side that should be too strong for Scotland.
