A Internationals Six Nations 2001

Overview
The tournament was affected by an outbreak of the highly infectious livestock disease foot and mouth in Britain.
As a consequence, there were restrictions on travel and Ireland's three fixtures against the home nations were cancelled and no winner was declared.
