The Scotland player hospitalised having contracted the coronavirus has been released from hospital. 

An unnamed member of their squad took ill with the virus after their return from Italy for their round 3 game in the Women's Six Nations.

As a result, their March 7 game with France scheduled for Scotstoun became the first women's match of the championship to be postponed before Six Nations organisers called a halt to the competition.

But, Scottish Rugby put out a brief but positive statement on the health of their squad on Monday afternoon.

They wrote, "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."

As a precaution, a number of the squad had also entered precautionary self-isolation but it's also been confirmed, "The seven Scotland women players and staff self-isolating have also been cleared to resume daily life."

Before the tournament came to a halt, the Scots had lost both of their two opening matches to Ireland and Italy.

Six Nations organisers are hoping to conclude the tournaments later in the year, possibly before the scheduled autumn internationals in late-October and early-November.
