We have now passed the halfway stage of this year’s Six Nations Championships and fortunately, the coverage has not been affected by the Coronavirus outbreak until now.
Unfortunately following several confirmed cases in Italy their match against Ireland has been postponed on medical grounds.
On the field, the French have dominated proceedings to date topping the table with three wins from three matches including hard-fought wins over England (24-17) and Wales (27-23).
They head to Murrayfield on 8 March for the penultimate game against Scotland knowing that if they can return to France with a win they will have an incredible chance of completing the Grand Slam with a home tie to Ireland in the final round of matches.
Pre-tournament favourites England got off to the worst possible start with defeat to France on the opening day, but they bounced back against the Scots before an impressive victory over Ireland last weekend at Twickenham.
England host Wales at Twickenham in their next match, knowing that a victory will win them the Triple Crown, a victory there will also give them faint hopes of winning the Six Nations should France slip up anywhere.
