Six Nations organisers have confirmed that the Italy versus England games have been postponed and said that all of the other matches, including France v Ireland on 14 March, are to go ahead, as it stands. 

"The decision has now been taken to postpone the three matches between Italy and England (men's, women's, and U20) set to take place over the weekend of 13/14/15 March, with the intention to reschedule them at later dates," a statement read.

"Based on the information that is currently available, all other Six Nations matches are set to go ahead as scheduled.

"As previously stated, Six Nations fully intends to complete all 15 games across all three championships when time allows." 

Ireland's games against Italy, scheduled for this weekend, had already been postponed.
