FOUR OF THE five Six Nations weekends will be kick-started by Friday Pro12 fixtures after most games postponed by weather and as a knock-on effect of the Paris attacks have been rescheduled.

Leinster‘s Round 9 game away to Glasgow Warriors has been re-fixed for Friday 18 March, kicking off in Scotstoun at 19.35 (to be broadcast by Sky Sports), the same time as Ireland under 20s host Scotland in Donnybrook on the final weekend of the Six Nations.

Fixtures involving Ireland senior men and women will take place on either Saturday or Sunday through the course of the Championship and so will not clash with any of the postponed Pro12 games.

The Round 12 meeting of Ulster and the Dragons, moved from the second weekend in January to facilitate the northern province’s trip to Oyonnax, will now be played on Friday 5 February (19.35 on BBC NI). That is the same time as Ireland U20s kick off their Six Nations against Wales in Donnybrook.

A week earlier will see rescheduled Round 13 trips to Italy for Munster and Ulster take place on Saturday 30 January. Zebre v Munster will kick off at 14.00 Irish time, Treviso v Ulster at 17.00 and both games will be broadcast by TG4 with BBC NI also showing Les Kiss’ men in action.

Meanwhile, Leinster’s Round 14 home clash with Zebre has been fixed for Friday 12 February (KO 19.30), Ireland U20s will be in action away to France at the same time.

Munster’s postponed 9 January (Pro12 Round 12) trip to Cardiff has yet to be re-fixed. We will update you here when that match has been given a slot in the crowded fixture calendar.
