PARIS – France's rugby 7s women's team pulled out of this weekend's Madrid tournament following two suspected Covid-19 cases, the French federation (FFR) said on Saturday.

"As a consequence, the France women's 7s team has pulled out of the Madrid tournament this weekend," the FFR, who did not name the players who returned "suspicious" results, said in a statement.

Last week, the men's team also pulled out of the Madrid tournament because of Covid-19 cases in the squad.

On Thursday, France's Six Nations home game against Scotland, initially scheduled for Sunday, was postponed after 11 players and several staff members tested positive for Covid-19 over the past week.
