The Autumn Nations game opening game between France and Fiji to be played on Sunday has been cancelled following the outbreak of Covid-19 cases in the Pacific Island side.
It has been reported that five players have been tested positive for Covid-19 in the Fiji squad with the members along with close contacts facing isolation.
Six Nations chief executive Ben Morel said the outbreak left them with no other option but to cancel the fixture.
"This was a difficult and disappointing decision, but it was the only possible outcome following today's test results," said Morel in a statement.
"Whilst we've all been eagerly awaiting this match, the welfare of our players and their support teams remain our number one priority.
"We have a rigorous testing programme in place. In this instance, it is impossible for the Fijians to field a competitive team and we have no other option but to cancel this match.
"I want to thank the Fijian and French Unions for their collaboration and wish the impacted athletes a speedy recovery."
Earlier on Friday, Fiji Rugby had confirmed that one player which is reported to be skipper Semi Radradra had tested positive for Covid-19 following which the press conference was cancelled. With four more additional cases since then, the organisers are closely monitoring the situation with Fiji's next game scheduled on 21st November against Italy.
