Featuring all those things that apparently “nobody likes to see”
Wales vs Scotland became the fourth game to be postponed in this season’s Six Nations due to the Coronavirus.
Ireland’s games against Italy and France had already been called off, in addition to England’s appointment with Italy in Rome.
No dates for rearranged games have yet been announced, although late October is thought to be an option.
