The RBS 6 Nations Council have expressed their deepest sympathy to the family of Ulster and Ireland Under-20 international player Nevin Spence following his tragic death last evening in an accident on the family farm alongside his father Noel and brother Graham.
John Feehan, Chief Executive, said: "This is a very sad day for rugby, Nevin was a rising star for his province and his country. He will leave a lasting legacy with the rugby community in Ireland."
Viewers in Ireland can look forward to a packed weekend of RBS 6 Nations action as Round Three of the Championship sees Wales travel to Scotland, Ireland host France and then England entertain Italy while Women's and Under-20s matches are also on the agenda.
