The fate of this season’s Six Nations could rest with discussions being held today.
After forcing the suspension of this season’s Heineken Champions Cup, French authorities are meeting to decide their involvement in international rugby.
They’re concerned about the virulent British strain of Covid-19.
The Six Nations is due to get underway in just under four-weeks’ time, with France’s first trip abroad against Ireland on Valentine’s Day.
Meanwhile the Champions Cup may now be run off as a knockout competition in April.
Strangely though, France named their Six Nations squad on Monday, see below.
Call-ups for Taofifenua, Delbouis and Colombe 🇫🇷
Penaud returns 👊
Ollivon, Alldritt and Dupont all feature 🎆
