France has been awarded a 28-0 victory for their cancelled match against Fiji on Monday in the Autumn Nations Cup.
The match was called off on Saturday following an outbreak of COVID-19 cases in the Flying Fijians camp where four players tested positive, forcing organisers to pull the plug on the round one match.
In a statement, the Organisers stated if a team is primarily responsible for a match not taking place, a 28-0 victory will be awarded to the opposition with a bonus point.
They say no-fault has been attributed to Fiji and they were working to ensure Fiji can play safely.
The statement says they wish the affected players well as they continue their recovery and are working closely with Fiji to ensure that they can field a competitive team against Italy.
Fiji is due to play Italy at 12.45am this Sunday in their second match.
