Under-20s clash between France and Italy postponed
3 February 2012 21:59
The RBS 6 Nations opener between France Under-20s and Italy Under-20s in Bourgoin was called off due to freezing conditions.
The game was scheduled to be played at the Stade Pierre Rajon in the east of France but had to be postponed as a result of a frozen pitch.
A decision will be taken as to when the match will be replayed but as yet it is not known whether it will be able to take place this weekend.
England's preparations for the Autumn International series were potentially dealt a further blow as Maro Itoje was forced to undergo an x-ray after Saracens' European victory over Scarlets on Saturday night.
