A coronavirus outbreak in the Fiji camp has resulted in their match against Scotland being cancelled

Scotland’s Autumn Nations Cup match against Fiji, which was scheduled for November 28, has been cancelled due to a coronavirus outbreak in the Fiji camp.

Tournament organisers announced that with the extent of the outbreak within the Fiji squad, combined with a minimum 10-day isolation period, the decision was unavoidable.

The Fiji team and the organisers are hopeful that their fourth match on December 5 against the team that will finish in fourth place in Pool A will be able to take place, subject to checks on fitness levels once the players come out of isolation and follow all appropriate protocols.

Scotland play France in the second round of Autumn Nations Cup fixtures at Murrayfield on Sunday.
