Two more players in the Flying Fijians squad have tested positive for COVID-19 as reported by French media this morning.
French newspaper Midi Olympique reports that one of the players is captain Semi Radradra.
The news comes just two days before the national side faces France in its first Autumn Nations Cup match.
According to the news report, the infected players are being placed in isolation and further tests will be done today with results expected tomorrow.
Fiji Rugby Union Chief Executive John O’Connor says despite the challenges, the team continues to prepare for its first match.
“As part of the protocol, tests are ongoing, the spread of the thing in France and Europe is quite huge so we are taking all the precautions, and the COVID-19 requirements are quite strict and tight, the boys have prepared well this week”.
Last week three players tested positive for Covid-19 but it was negative after the second and third round of tests.
The Flying Fijians will face France at 3:15am on Monday.
