2020 Six Nations will be completed at some stage claims former Rugby World Cup winner

Lewis Moody, part of the 2003 England World Cup winning side, knows what it is like to have games rescheduled and thinks the Six Nations tournament will be finished at one point.

The Six Nations were one of the first sporting events to be impacted by COVID-19. Before professional football in England was put on hold and before Formula 1 postponed the Australian Grand Prix and the Bahrain Grand Prix, Ireland's fixture (both men and women) against Italy, scheduled for the 7th and 8th March 2020 respectively, were already called off by 26th February 2020. 

The tournament still has one round of games to go (plus Ireland vs Italy who saw their fourth gameweek match postponed) and rescheduled dates for the remaining four matches have not yet been arranged by the governing officials.

England currently top the Six Nations table with 13 points from their four games even though they initially lost to France who sit in second. 

The tournament still has the potential for a major twist with Ireland, in third and only one point behind England, playing France away whilst England were to travel to bottom-placed Italy.

The tournament being halted indefinitely has left many wondering whether this year's Six Nations will ever be completed at some stage. 

Speaking to the Posh Boys on Love Sport Drive, former England international and World Cup winner Lewis Moody was asked for his thoughts on the current situation and Moody revealed he has been in a similar scenario himself when he was a player. 

"Do you know what, my first six nations game was the reschedule foot and mouth game. So I totally get what it's like to go through and I think that was an unprecedented period back then and they got rescheduled, yes it was in October.

"I mean it wasn't a great outcome for England because you know we'd gone four from four unbeaten and were in great form and then going into October we were missing captain Martin Johnson, number eight and talisman Lawrence Dallaglio and a number of other injuries.

"Well we won the Six Nations but lost the Grand Slam. 

"So in answer to your question I do think we can get it finished, it would just be much further down the line."
