    England's Six Nations game against Italy on March 14 in Rome has officially been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak

    England's Six Nations game against Italy on March 14 in Rome has officially been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak


    Tournament organisers faced the option of playing behind closed doors or delaying it until later in the year - they've chosen the latter option.

    Shaping the decision is the Italian federation's desire to retain the revenue of a lucrative home match, otherwise they would've missed out on gate receipts for a 73,000 sell-out.

    Ireland's match with Italy in Dublin on Saturday was also called off on public health grounds.
