Another 5 French rugby players get coronavirus, up to 10 in total

MARCUSIS, France (AP) – France’s five rugby players have praised the coronavirus and will miss the Six Nations game against Scotland.

The total number of players required to sign a contract from COVID-19 is 10, massively undermining the options of French coach Fabien Galti, as Les Tricolores goes for the third consecutive victory to open the competition.

Cyril Byle, Peato Mauvaka, Romain Taofifenua, Charles Ollivon և Brice Dulin are the last players to pass a positive test after testing on Sunday.

Scrumhalf Antoine Dupont, Jul Julien Marchand, Mohamed Hawass, Arthur Vincent and Gaber Wheeler, wingers, have previously praised the virus.

Two other Squ squad players – Locked Swan Rebbach and Jean-Baptiste Gross – were left out after it was ruled out that they had been in contact with two of Toulon’s teammates who had a positive result.

Galti also had a positive test with assistant assistant coach William Serwat և Karim Gezal.

The French Rugby Federation reports that five pieces have been added to the squad ahead of the team’s return to training on Wednesday. The game against Scotland is on Sunday.

France started the Six Nations by defeating the teams of Italy and Ireland.
