I wonder what's happening with the postponed England v Italy game.  I suppose the final result will have to wait.

It could be a long wait to get a final result.

Note that Ireland have a game in hand, so a lot actually hinges on the France-Ireland match, and whether the winner picks up a bonus point.

2001 Six Nations didn't get finished until late October thanks to Foot & Mouth.

France-Ireland now postponed (presumably due to the French authorities now banning gatherings of more than 1,000 people):

Seems to be varying mileage over the Wales-Scotland match - some of the tabloids are claiming it's off as well, but there wasn't anything on the 6 Nations site when I last checked, and the statement on France-Ireland is more recent than the newspaper reports.

Both the Italy-Ireland matches have been postponed. Presumably that will give IRE a bit more rest before the biggie against France?
(assuming I've got the schedule right ...)

By the time that comes round the Coronavirus situation is likely to have escalated further.

Not quite 6-nations, but might have an impact next year.

Probably not the first Sarrie to go overseas, but definitely a big blow to them.

Unless they lose too many more I think they’ll be ok and, assuming we have a next season, should get promoted back to the premiership. Unless I’ve misunderstood the structure? Looks like he’s on a one year deal and he says he’ll return to Saracens.

I think that's not a given this time round tbh, I know it's normally up-down ping pong, as you say depends how many more go.

Ireland made to realise it's not just a case of "get a bonus point win and we're done" when up against the French.

Side of the Day were Scotland, I think. Wales failed without a crowd and not in the Principality Stadium. France and Ireland played themselves out of contention and Italy gamely kept England at bay. Who were disappointing.
