Fiji's Autumn Nations Cup game with Italy has been cancelled. 

The sides were due to meet this Saturday, but the latest round of PCR testing in the Fijian camp has returned 29 positive tests.

Fiji's game with France last week was also cancelled, with the test awarded a 28-0 bonus point victory in France's favour on Tuesday.

Five members tested positive ahead of last week's game in Vannes, while several others were forced to isolate having been deemed close contacts.

After cancelling the trip to Italy, Autumn Nations Cup organisers said, "The potential impact on Fiji’s remaining matches is currently under review."

Fiji's final group game is away to Scotland on November 28, with a final fixture to follow in the first week of December.

Autumn Nations Cup statement:

The organiser of the Autumn Nations Cup today announced the cancellation of the Italy v Fiji match due to take place on Saturday 21st November 2020 in Ancona.

The decision was taken after the latest round of COVID-19 tests undertaken yesterday by the Fijian team returned 29 positive cases this morning.

The Tournament organiser remains in constant contact with the Fijian squad to address the situation. 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.
