The Flying Fijians match against Italy in the Autumn Nations Cup has been called off after the team returned 29 positive cases of COVID-19 this morning.

The organisers say they remain in constant contact with the Fijian squad to address the situation.

They say the main priority at present is the welfare of all players and management.

The potential impact on Fiji’s remaining matches is currently under review.

Meanwhile, France has been awarded a 28-0 victory for their cancelled match against Fiji on Monday.

The match was called off on Saturday following an outbreak of COVID-19 cases in the Flying Fijians camp where four players tested positive, forcing organisers to pull the plug on the round one match.

In a statement, the organisers stated if a team is primarily responsible for a match not taking place, a 28-0 victory will be awarded to the opposition with a bonus point.

They say no-fault has been attributed to Fiji and they were working to ensure Fiji can play safely.
