SCOTLAND will play their final two home matches in this year’s Six Nations, against Ireland on Sunday 14th March and Italy on 20th March,  behind closed doors in order to comply with the Scottish Government’s public health guidance on Covid.

This has seemed inevitable for some time, and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon‘s statement this afternoon which outlined a cautious approach to easing lockdown restrictions provided final confirmation.
