How will the Six Nations be affected by Wales and their 2-week lockdown

How will the Welsh rugby team be affected by the short lockdown that is being introduced in the country? Wales are set to restart their Six Nations campaign this weekend.

Wales are set to play France this weekend as the Six Nations restarts 6 month after it was suspended due to the COVID pandemic.

Wales will go into a “short, sharp” national lockdown from Friday until Monday, 9 November.

People will be told to stay at home, while pubs, restaurants and non-essential shops will shut.

Primary schools will reopen after the half-term break, but only Years 7 and 8 in secondary schools will return at that time under new “firebreak” rules.

Gatherings indoors and outdoors with people not in your household will also be banned.

Many will be wondering how this affects Wales and their Six Nations games coming up which will be against France this weekend and Scotland on the final weekend of the tournament.

Wales Online reporter Simon Thomas confirmed thankfully that sport in Wales will continue on as normal despite the two-week circuit breaker.

This will come as welcome news to Welsh rugby fans who will not have been able to see their national team in action since the game was put on hold last Winter.

Meanwhile, in France, their team are preparing to face Wales in the Six Nations under strict COVID rules.
