Welsh Rugby Union has confirmed that Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli will host the Wales' rescheduled Six Nations game against Scotland on 31st October.

The decision follows after Wales' traditional home ground Principality Stadium has been converted into the Dragon’s Heart field hospital following the pandemic coronavirus.

Parc y Scarlets will also serve as the venue for Wales' Autumn Nations Cup game against Georgia while the venue for the game against England and the final round clash on 5th December is yet to be decided.

“We have taken the call to play our first two home matches this autumn in Wales," said Chief executive Steve Phillips.

“Given how vital Wales games are to the funding of our sport, it was only right that every option was explored.

“Obviously more important than that is the health of supporters, players and the nation as a whole and so, whilst making contingency plans, we have of course been conscious of following government advice closely every step of the way.

“We anticipate the two games will take place behind closed doors, however, if the ‘big picture’ changes, we would be open to exploring whether either game could serve as a test event for crowds.”
