The game due to take place against Italy in Dublin the weekend just gone was also postponed, while England’s win over Wales and Scotland’s victory over France did go ahead.
The final round of games is now set to take place on October 31st.
There’s still no official word from Six Nations organisers.
A report in Midi-Olympique.fr (translated by Google translate) says
“Due to the epidemic of Coronavirus, the 6 Nations Committee has just decided to postpone the whole of the last day of the 6 Nations to next October 31, France – Ireland but also Wales – Scotland.
A final telephone point between the different federations this Monday morning confirmed a decision that was in the pipes for the past few hours. There will therefore be no France – Ireland next Saturday.”
