Six Nations Matches To Resume In October
The amended dates for the remainder of this year’s Six Nations matches have been confirmed by the competition’s organisers.
Brought to a sudden halt mid-way through the tournaments in March, the games for the men’s as well as the women’s competitions will in October pick up they left off earlier this year.
England currently tops the points standings, with 13 points ahead of runner-upper France, and accumulated from a total of 4 matches. Ireland will kick off the men’s competition-resume on October 24 when they face off with Italy at the Aviva Stadium. The last round of the men’s tournament – involving all six times – will commence on October 31.
The women’s tournament will be spread out over 3 weeks, with England also topping the performance here – 8 points ahead of France.
Organisers have furthermore also provided select details in lieu of an eight-team tournament being considered as a replacement for the men’s Autumn tests. The eight-team tournament will reportedly consist of all of the Six Nations teams, along with two additional teams from the international spectrum. Many details have yet to be finalised, the organisers have said regarding the new tournament, including arrangements relating to match schedules, commercial arrangements, and actual operational practicalities and challenges.
The need for a replacement for the annual Autumn tests has reportedly been brought about by travel restrictions. Many players aren’t currently permitted to travel to Europe, posing a string of challenges to event organisers.
Organisers have said that they expect to be in a position to announce further and more detailed arrangements later this month.
