Six Nations Statement

The Six Nations met today in Paris to address the current situation regarding the Covid-19 Virus. Six Nations and its six unions and federations are following the situation very closely with their respective governments and relevant health authorities and will strictly follow any directive given that would impact sporting events.

As it stands today, based on the latest information, all Six Nations matches currently scheduled are set to go ahead.

Six Nations is in contact with FIR and RFU regarding the possibility of relocating the Womenís and U20 Italy vs England matches to another Italian location and we will make a further announcement on this in due course. However, the Italy vs England Senior Menís match in Rome is planned to go ahead as scheduled.

Six Nations intends to complete all 15 games across all three championships when time allows but we will refrain from making any rescheduling announcements for the time being while we keep assessing the situation.

Six Nations Statement on Italy V England games, weekend 13/14/15 March

Six Nations notes the decree issued by the Italian Government on March 4th with respect to all upcoming sporting events in that country. The decision has now been taken to postpone the three matches between Italy and England (Menís, Womenís, and U20) set to take place over the weekend of 13th/14th/15th March, with the intention to reschedule them at later dates.


Based on the information that is currently available, all other Six Nations matches are set to go ahead as scheduled. As previously stated, Six Nations fully intends to complete all 15 games across all three championships when time allows. We will refrain from making any rescheduling announcements while we keep assessing the situation.

Six Nations will continue to monitor developments with our unions and their respective governments and health authorities. We remain fully supportive of any preventative measures taken in the interests of overall public health in relation to the Coronavirus and we will respect instructions provided by government authorities and health organisations.
