Women’s Six Nations could move in calendar to increase exposure

It looks like the Six Nations schedule is set for a radical overhaul, with organisers considering creating a new window for the women’s competition.

This years tournament is still to be finished although  England, who have four wins from four, are the champions elect with Italy left to play.

However, the tournament received widespread criticism, with a number of the matches shoehorned into lunchtime kick-offs to avoid clashing with the mens or U20’s matches.

“We are studying a possible specific window different to the men’s as part of an update to the global calendar for the women’s international game,” said a Six Nations spokesperson.

“This is a working option right now, no decision is made yet.”
