Due to a broadcaster request, play had originally been scheduled to be in one session from 1530 GMT on Saturday, with the fifth and sixth rounds being played back-to-back. However, following the postponement of next weekend’s planned Six Nations rugby union fixture involving Ireland and Italy, ITV4 will now be able to broadcast two sessions.

As such, the afternoon session from 1230 GMT will feature the fifth round, with the sixth round then in the evening session from 1900 GMT.
