The Scotland Women’s rugby player who tested positive for coronavirus is now out of hospital.

The Women’s Six Nations match between Scotland and France on March 7 was called off after it was confirmed that the player had tested positive for the virus on the day before the game.

Seven other players have been staying at home, but have now been told that they can return to normal daily life.

A Scottish Rugby Union statement read: “Scottish Rugby is pleased to confirm the Scotland Women player who contracted coronavirus has now been released from hospital, no longer needs to self-isolate and is feeling back to normal.

“The seven Scotland Women players and staff self-isolating have also been cleared to resume daily life.”

The squad had been in northern Italy prior to the positive test. Their scheduled match against Italy was postponed because of the spread of the virus.
