New date set for the France-Scotland Six Nations clash

Title-seeking France will host Scotland in their rescheduled Six Nations match at the Stade de France on Friday March 26.
The match was originally scheduled for late February but was postponed after a Covid-19 outbreak in the French camp in the week leading up to the test which affected 11 players and backstage staff, including head coach Fabien Galthie .

The game is a decisive title potential for the French, who must beat Wales in Paris on Saturday to remain in contention for the trophy.

France dominate Wales by nine points in the standings with the game in hand.

Scotland claimed a championship victory and are not in contention for the title, although they beat Italy on Saturday and France.
