Three members of the Flying Fijians rugby team who initially tested positive for Covid-19 have now returned negative results.
The Fiji squad is being tested twice-weekly as they prepare for their Autumn Nations Cup opener against France next weekend.
Three people tested positive for the coronavirus last week after arriving at their camp in Limoges in central France, while a further three people went into self-isolation after the Barbarians game against England was scrapped following a breach of team protocols in London.
“We are very grateful that the entire team has now tested negative and are thankful to everyone in camp for complying with Covid-19 requirements and practising hygiene protocols, ensuring such an outcome,” said Fiji Rugby CEO John O’Connor.
One player’s test results were not conclusive and the team is awaiting the outcome of a re-test.
“But are confident that the result will return negative before we march into our tournament base camp. We are excited that the entire team has now tested negative so we can focus on our preparations.”
