The few players who tested positive in pre-departure tests were well and asymptomatic, Fiji Rugby chief executive John O’Connor said.

“After discussions with the Ministry of Health and considering the safety and welfare of everyone, the entire teams have moved into the mandatory seven-day isolation,” he said.

The New Zealand team have already pulled out because Covid-enforced border restrictions meant they would not have been able to immediately re-enter the country following the tournament.
