The final round of this year’s Six Nations competition has reportedly been postponed due to the continuing threat of COVID-19.
According to French publication Midi Olympique on Monday morning, France’s clash with Ireland will not take place this coming Saturday after the French Government suspended events of more than a 1000 people present.
The match was scheduled to be played at the Stade de France stadium in Paris.
As a result, and with England’s match against Italy in Rome already postponed, the Six Nations committee decided to cancel all the matches for the weekend with the report indicating that it will be rescheduled for the end of October.
With England and France on the same points tally at the top of the Six Nations log and Ireland already a match behind due to the postponement of their encounter with Italy over the weekend, the final round could’ve had a significant impact on who wins the competition.
