With teams from South Africa, Italy, Scotland, Ireland, and South Africa, Wales' teams Ospreys and Cardiff, Ospreys and Cardiff are participating in the United Rugby Championship.

Welsh rugby won't see its major teams play on a Judgement Day in this season.

Confirmation has been made that Dragons v Scarlets, and Cardiff v Ospreys will take place at the hosts' venues and not at Principality Stadium in March.

In 2013, the first Judgement Day was held. All four teams participated in back-toback games at Cardiff's iconic venue.

There will not be another April, despite the relaxed Covid-19 rules in Wales.

Judgement Day was last August, 2020. Teams were freed from lockdown to play in a double header at Rodney Parade.

The weekend of 22-23April will host the round of Welsh derbies in URC's United Rugby Championship (URC), which had been scheduled for the season's Judgement Day.
