Six Nations 2022: First Minister Mark Drakeford has 'no criticism' of WRU

Mark Drakeford says he has "no criticism" of the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) for considering playing home Six Nations games in England.

The first minister announced on Friday that Covid-19 restrictions would not be relaxed in Wales, where at the moment fans are not allowed to attend games.

Mr. Drakeford said he "has no problem" with the WRU considering their options.

"I make no criticism of the WRU for exploring all options available to them," he told BBC Sport Wales.

Restrictions were imposed on sporting events in Wales on 22 December, effectively meaning professional games are behind closed doors.

Wales is due to host Scotland in Cardiff on 12 February and the WRU is discussing potentially moving games to England.
