One trick seems to be to define the entries crossed by the arrow as empty
nodes first and then put these entries afterwards using "\SpecialCoor" as
in

\begin{center}
\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.5}
\begin{tabular}{cc}
\rnode{11}{A} & B \\
\rnode{M1}{} & D\\
\rnode{31}{E} & F\\
\ncline[linecolor=blue,%
linewidth=0.4pt]{->}%
{11}{31}
\SpecialCoor
\rput[b](M1){C}
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
