The Paris-based club was scheduled to play Toulon next Thursday in preparation for its opening fixture of the 2020-21 Top 14 season against Bordeaux Begles in the French capital on Sept. 4.
“In light of the mandatory medical examinations for all players who have tested positive for… COVID-19, it appears that some of them have suffered lung damage due to the virus,” the club said in a statement on Wednesday.
