Wales Rugby Union announce Six Nations clash against Scotland will go ahead

Wales' Rugby Union has announced that their Six Nations match against Scotland will go ahead in Cardiff despite coronavirus fears.

It looks as though the game may be the only match to go ahead with open doors as the Premier League, Women's Super League and other competitions have been suspended.

The WRU released a statement which read: "WRU representatives have been in dialogue with Welsh Assembly Government minister for Health and Social Services Vaughan Gething, who provided much needed clarity on the Cobra meeting held yesterday.

"Throughout the WRU Board have followed the scientific advice of government, Public Health Wales and medical experts and determined that any game would be held or postponed based on that advice. 

"Enhanced facilities for hand washing and sanitisation will be available at the stadium and there are measures in place to manage any issues with attendees on the day. In addition supporters are urged to follow the advice that is widely available on government websites in relation to the virus."

Wales v Scotland will kick off tomorrow at 2.15pm.
