Postponed 6 Nations match won't be played this weekend

6:06 am on 14 February 2012

France and Ireland's postponed Six Nations rugby match will not take place this weekend.

The two teams were due to meet on Sunday, but the match at the Stade de France in Paris was called off at the last minute because of a frozen pitch.

A new date will not be announced until tonight at the earliest when the Six Nations Council will meet again to discuss rescheduling the fixture.

The most likely option is that the match will be rearranged around the weekend of March 3rd, the only available free weekend before the tournament concludes on March 17th.
