France were due to take on Scotland at home at the Stade de France, but due to a Covid outbreak in the French squad after their win over Ireland in Dublin, the game was postponed. France and Wales are the only two teams that are still capable of winning the Grand Slam.

Reports from France(again) say France v Scotland will be played on Friday, March 26 and Scotland will get English players released. Still think the french are lucky if that is the case. My column in @ScotMailSport earlier this week. pic.twitter.com/oe9M4zYs7H

It’s looking likely that the French, Scottish and English clubs that both International players represent will agree to release their players for what should be a cracking game at the Stade de France.
Scotland had a great win at Twickenham in their opening game for the first time since 1983 a long time coming for the Scottish rugby fans and then followed it up with a very disappointing loss to the Welsh at home in Murrayfield. France have looked very impressive in their first two games with a very youthful squad and good wins over Italy and Ireland on the road.
France v Scotland 26 of March on a Friday night, let’s hope this goes ahead.
