No winner for U20 Six Nations as Championship cancelled

No winner for U20 Six Nations as Championship cancelled

The three outstanding matches of the U20 Six Nations will not be played and there will be no winner for the 2020 Championship, Six Nations Rugby has confirmed.

The U20 Six Nations was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic in March.

But Six Nations has decided that the three outstanding matches will not be played and there will be no winner for the 2020 Championship due to season scheduling constraints.

Ireland had been top of the standings and on course to defend their title with three wins from three, with games against Italy and France to play, before the Championship was curtailed.

However, Six Nations is pleased to confirm details of rescheduled fixtures for the 2020 Guinness Six Nations Championship and the Women’s Six Nations.
