POSTPONED: Ireland’s Six Nations Clash with France called off

This Saturday’s Six Nations Clash between Ireland and France in the Stade de France in Paris has been postponed due to fears of the spread of COVID-19.

Ireland’s game with Italy last Sunday had already been postponed due to the illness.

As such Ireland have only played three Six Nations games this year with reports that the final round of game will be played in late October.

While nothing has been confirmed regarding the refixturing of these games, Ireland Head Coach understood where the decision came from.

“Gutted. We’ve built up for a couple of weeks after a disappointment and we were really looking forward to this weekend.

“Disappointed that it’s not going ahead but fully understand.”
