Weather threat to Six Nations

The weather is threatening the start of this season's Six Nations.

In Ireland Sunday's fascinating game against France has already been moved from Dublin to Ashbourne RFC (the one in Co Meath, not the one in Derbyshire!) while RFUW are advising that no-one travel to the England game against Italy (and the England A game with Spain) until it is confirmed that it is going ahead. 

No news from Edinburgh - but they have no snow (and none forecast) and bright sunny skies, so at least Scotland v Wales will go ahead.

Quite where this leaves the Women's Six Nations is difficult to predict. As it now follows the men's timetable, it also no longer has a two week gap between each game - so the opportunities to replay games will be limited. This is not a real problem for the men, who play in modern grounds with undersoil heating - things would have to be very severe to cause a postponement at Twickenham. 

Maybe the RFU could invite the women to play there if they are snowed off at London Welsh? Oh look - another flying pig!
