Wales vs Scotland will go ahead as planned this weekend according to the Six Nations despite the fact that Ireland’s clash with France and England trip to Italy have both been postponed.
The Wales Women vs Scotland Women game, however, will not go ahead after a Scottish player tested positive for the virus.
Dates have not yet been revealed for the rescheduled matches but reports today suggest the end of October.
“Following instructions received from the authorities in France, the decision has been made to postpone the Round 5 Guinness Six Nations match between France and Ireland. We are still awaiting confirmation for the Women’s and U20s fixtures,” a Six Nations statement read.
“The Wales V Scotland Guinness Six Nations and U20s Six Nations matches will be going ahead as scheduled.
“The fixture between Wales Women and Scotland Women is also postponed after a Scottish player tested positive for Covid-19 and a further seven members of the Scotland camp (players and management) are self-isolating.
“Six Nations and its constituent Unions and federations will work closely to identify dates on which all postponed matches will take place. No immediate announcement will be made on rescheduling as we will need to discuss with all relevant stakeholders and assess the evolution of the situation.”
