That’s it, the France/Scotland match between the Blues has been postponed due to a new case of covid. But when will it be restarted?
For a short week, the cluster of COVID-19 declared within the XV of France has flowed a lot of ink. In spite of everything, as of this morning, the match scheduled for Sunday 28 February was kept on hold, despite the absence of a dozen players and not least (antoine dupont, charles olivon, Bryce Dulin…) to which we can add up to five staff members, including Fabian Galthy. Unfortunately, this Thursday, February 25 (we do not know the identity of the player) the revelation of a new positive case among the Blues prompted the Six Nations Committee to make the decision to postpone the meeting.
No postponement date at the moment
No replacement date has been maintained yet. And even if there is some talk of playing next weekend (March 6 or 7), it will not be selected because it is too close. Nothing really says that other positive cases won’t come out of the blues’ wardrobe until then. “We are working on the date of the next match and will notify you in due course.“, just wanted to add committee.
Sequel to Crunchy on March 13
Briefly, as soon as the latter case was announced, training was halted and the group was placed in solitary confinement. Blues supporters will have to take their troubles patiently and be content with the Italy/Ireland and Wales/England meetings this weekend… while looking forward to the match against Scotland. too bad because teammates Matthew Jalibert Had a good start to this 2021 tournament (wins over Italy and Ireland). The next meeting of the Blues is on Saturday 13 March in Twickenham. Hopefully that day Covid will only be a bad memory, that the workforce will be full and back on their feet to play the crunch!
an internal investigation
The question of how so many positive cases came about remains unanswered. The health bubble that had been established around the XV of France since January has faded. Sports Minister Roxana Maracinenu has demanded an internal inquiry into the matter. When asked by France Info, federation president Bernard Laporte could not explain how this could happen. “This is a question that worries me, everyone who enters the bubble is tested, the protocol is very strict. I would like to know if anyone has made a mistake or not”.
