Due to the spread of Covid-19, the 6 Nations Tournament saw its last day cut by several games. On instructions from the police headquarters, France – Ireland on Saturday at the Stade de France was postponed as was Italy – England by the Italian government last week. Wales – Scotland will therefore be the only match to be played this weekend.
Decimated by injuries, the Blues would have the possibility of recovering major players to hope to win the 2020 edition. “The French Rugby Federation is aware of the constraints and the disappointment caused by this postponement but can only support a decision taken in the interest of the health of all, “reacted the FFR in a press release. According to several media, the postponed meetings could be contested on October 31. Ticket holders can keep their place for the match if they wish.
Regarding the France-Ireland U20 and women matches, the postponement is very likely. The 6 Nations committee is “still awaiting confirmation” to endorse this change of calendar. The U20 match taking place in Perpignan, it is up to the Prefect of the Pyrenees to decide. As for the women's match, it will be submitted to the authority of the Prefect of the North since the match will be played in Lille.
