There are no plans to postpone any more Six Nations matches and those that have been postponed will be fulfilled when possible, organisers have said.

They met today in Paris to discuss what to do as coronavirus spreads across Europe.

Italy's men's, women's and under-20 games against Ireland this coming weekend had already been postponed, while the Italian women's home match against Scotland was also postponed.

A statement read: "As it stands today, based on the latest information, all Six Nations matches currently scheduled are set to go ahead.

"Six Nations is in contact with FIR [Italian Rugby Federation] and RFU [Rugby Football Union] regarding the possibility of relocating the Women’s and U20 Italy vs England matches to another Italian location and we will make a further announcement on this in due course.

"However, the Italy vs England Senior Men’s match in Rome is planned to go ahead as scheduled."

Organisers added that they intend to complete all the postponed games "when time allows" but will "refrain from making any rescheduling announcements for the time being while we keep assessing the situation."

Italy is the European country impacted worst by the outbreak of the virus, officially called COVID-19, and the death toll there has reached 52.

There has been in excess of 2,000 confirmed cases and events ranging from Serie A games to an Olympic water polo qualification tournament have had to be postponed.

The three games Italian teams had been due to play this weekend were all in Ireland, but the Irish Government recommended they be postponed.

When they can be rearranged for remains unclear.

After Six Nations games were postponed because of the the foot and mouth outbreak in 2001, they were not played until September and October.
