Probably try to get that game played the week before, which won't be great for either of us but at this stage it's only sport.

+1

They should set up a committee to make the call after 2 rounds to determine whether the tournament is vintage or not and cancel the rest of the games if it's one of the non-vintage years.

Yeah, they should call it off at this point. It'll be bizarre and unsatisfactory doing it in Autumn anyhow

Are you Welsh and desperate to holdover last year's result or something?

It's no different than what happened back in the days of foot and mouth.

Whether it's unsatisfactory or not isn't really the point; we have to be flexible in the face of things beyond the sport's control.

Besides, you think the Italian and Irish unions would willingly forego the revenue of a home test? Not on your life and nor should they when there's an option.

Bizarre, Ireland are the only side with their fate in their own hands now. England need France to do them a favour in the final round. The game before against Italy should be a nice warm up for us, one the French won't have.

Not Welsh. Cancelling is also flexible. Joe Public wont cry over it and its better for player welfare.

Would be pretty gutted if the Scotland game was called off as I'm all set to go down. On the one hand seems sensible to be cautious and to have all games the same weekend if possible, on the other you have the UK 'Culture' (whatever the hell that title means) secretary saying this morning that current medical advice is that there is no benefit to cancelling games at this moment.

All your players are as shit or good as the next. Full team was out on Saturday bar winger Josh Adams. You Welsh and your excuses are next level.

I saw a topic being discussed on your national thread appearing to show Wales depth at outhalf with about 10 players listed in order. In reality you can scrap the list from 3 to 10. Are you counting players on a the scrap heap on your injury list? Pointless exercise.

I don't really give a stuff about Wales results mate. I care more about the 4 Welsh pro teams and their ability to put decent teams out.

It stems from a Midi Olympique article, I believe, suggesting that's what's being debated today.

The way forward for Wales is to try and make the regions competitive once again. Team Wales should be on the back burner for a while. With the RFU paying big wages now, the regions and contracted players will be under pressure to get results.

Good job I've booked a hotel for Paris where the cancellation fee is only €3 less than the actual room cost.

Having sorted out the FlyBe issue, they are going to cancel it just to spite me.

Scotland v Wales still on for now:

@bencoles_ Just heard from WRU that as far as they're aware, Wales-Scotland is still on.

@BethFisherSport I have just spoke to the Six Nations and as far as they are concerned the match is still ON.

France v Ireland is off:

@bencoles_
French sports minister Roxana Mărăcineanu confirms that France-Ireland is off.

So WRU think it's on, the 6 Nations thinks it's on, and the Govt think of no need to cancel sporting events.
