Saturday's scheduled clash between the Barbarians and Samoa at Twickenham has been cancelled 90 minutes before kick-off due to coronavirus cases in the invitational side.

A statement released by the Rugby Football Union revealed four players and two members of staff had tested positive for Covid-19.

Glasgow and Scotland back-row Ryan Wilson had been due to captain a side that also featured South African World Cup winners Duane Vermeulen, Malcolm Marx and Steven Kitshoff, as well as Australia internationals James O'Connor and Nic White.
