Six Nations set to return in October

 

The Guinness Six Nations is set to resume at the end of October after being temporarily suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Four matches in the men’s game remain to be played to complete the 21st competition of the Six Nations tournament.

Ireland and Italy, who have a game in hand on the rest, come up against each other on October 24th at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

The final round of fixtures for the 2020 tournament, taking place on October 31st, will be as follows:

  • Wales v Scotland (14:15 GMT) Venue TBC
  • Italy v England (16:45 GMT) Stadio Olimpico
  • France v Ireland (20:00) Stade de France

England currently sits top, level on points with France, but with a superior point difference of two.

Having already won the Triple Crown, England are looking to win their first Six Nations competition since 2017, while second-placed France hopes to break their 10-year wait for the trophy.

Italy remain in last place for the time being and are staring down the barrel of their fifth wooden spoon in a row.
