Wales confirm where their Six Nations home matches will be played

Reports have revealed Wales’ ban preventing sports fans from attending events will be the first Covid restriction to be lifted within the next fortnight.

First Minister Mark Drakeford will lift the restrictions blocking spectators attending professional fixtures outdoors, which has been in place since Boxing Day amid rising Omicron Covid cases.

A definitive timeline has not been given, but the Welsh Government has said it will lift all restrictions to return to alert level zero over two weeks – “if the public health situation continues to improve”.

It means Welsh rugby fans should be able to attend Wales’ first home Six Nations game at the Principality Stadium against Scotland on February 12.

Five Most OVERPAID Rugby Players In The World Right Now

OVERPAID Rugby Players

#1. Handre Pollard (Montpellier) – £1,000,000 per year

Has the highest-paid player in the world flopped when on the pitch for Montpellier? No, but he’s barely played despite earning more than double Harlequins and England star Marcus Smith (£480,000).

Only six starts and four replacement appearances during 2021 means the Springbok playmaker pocketed £100,000 per game or £2,061 per minute for the French club this calendar year.

Brilliant and absent almost in equal measure, Pollard departs GGL Stadium next summer after agreeing to a much lower contract to join Leicester Tigers.
