Six Nations hit with COVID-19 travel challenges

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Six Nations hit with COVID-19 travel challenges” – below is their description.

COVID vaccination status may not be a requirement to play for a rugby team but it will determine if some players will be eligible to travel for the upcoming Six Nations.

Vaccinations are a requirement when traveling into countries like France.

England National Rugby Head Coach Eddie Jones explained the team’s contingency plan saying ‘if a player isn’t eligible then we’ll replace them’.

Sky’s Tom Parmenter shows us the play by play.
